Abstract

We describe an easy way to determine eye-drop contents in translucent bottles. Transillumination of eye-drop bottles from behind or the bottom by using a penlight clearly defines the fluid levels. The described procedure may prevent disposal of eye-drop bottles containing useful amounts of medication and prevent Ophthalmologists and Patients unexpectedly coming across an empty bottle.
