Default number of drops

I have been taking LUNIGAN for over a year. I am supposed to get a 90 day supply from my H.M.O. pharmacy. One drop in each eye, once a day for 09 days. It always runs out much before 90 days. Am I doing something wrong or is something else happening? Can you tell me how many drops are in a 7.5 mL container?

There's 20 drops in a milligram, so you get 150 drops per bottle.

Default How Many Drops In a Bottle?

It seems rather disingenuous for insurance companies to restrict our prescription drugs according to some "magic formula" they or someone concocted, that they say determines how many drops are in a bottle. How much eyedrop actually comes out the tip of the bottle depends on many factors, such as: how warm or cold the bottle is at the time of application, how "soft" the bottle is (from your "massaging" it or not, before instilling the drop), the shape and material of the bottle itself (some bottles are made of softer plastic than others), how full the bottle is, how nervous the hand is that is instilling the drop, etc. etc. etc.

Sometimes the drop will go into the eye with just a mere touch and with no problem; other times, you might have to squeeze harder to get anything to come out; and other times, you might miss the eye completely and have the drop run down your cheek!
