Is Hydrochloric Acid Safe In Eye Drops? (Pt. 2)
TeenHealthFX would like to begin by thanking you for writing back to us about your health concern.
As stated in our previous response, unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor, eye drops are intended for short-term use. Being that you are currently reliant on eye drops for daily use, and are also experiencing additional eye irritation symptoms, TeenHealthFX highly suggests scheduling an appointment with your doctor. He/she can perform a proper exam, and determine if medication is necessary.
If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. A Planned Parenthood health center is a good option if you have concerns about cost or confidentiality issues. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
