I have seen a video where the Dr shows one bottle with 3 meds in it, and when hey called me about mine, each bottle was separate, but all the meds have the same names.

The one I watched in a video was called ... PGB... 3.5ml bottle.

Those meds are:
Pednisolone
Gatifloxacin
Bromfenac

Here is the video of a Dr explaining what goes on, and shows the bottle of drops at about the 10:40 mark..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSOS...index=2&t=874s

I doubt Good RX has it.

Many of you all have an investment in what will be my new eyes. The drops will be going in. I will find some things to sell to help pay for the proper medicine for my eyes.

Gizzy, have you called AARP and asked them if they have any ideas for benefits or funding? I still think there is help out there we are missing. 1917

Gizzy, my recommendation is to go down there and get one eye fixed and fixed properly. If it takes $300 worth of eye drops. Get em. Get one eye fixed and follow up exactly how the Dr. tells you to. Then investigate where you go from there. I'm sure RFC isn't out of contributions....but get in there and get after it. Keep looking for help also. I can't believe in the land of the rich and free there isn't help for you from some organization. 1917

The next steps have to be Gizzy's. We are all pulling for him but he has to get it organized and get over to the Dr's office. Plenty of people get this surgery and it seems a sure fire cure to what ails him. Mash on the go pedal Gizzy. You have enough to get one eye fixed, drops and all. Start there. 1917

I've learned to hate that stuff. Been using it for a few years now also. My every 3 month visit is early Wednesday. I always bet the Doc we will end up north of 30 AK's burned... Uggh...

Sounds like we have the same problem.....and some idiots lay in tanning booths. Yepper, after about four days those chemicals get rough. I asked one of my Clients, an Oncologist, how it worked. Like Weed-be-Gone he told me. Pre cancer or cancer cells are rapidly growing cells and like broad leaf weeds (dandelions for example) really suck in the chemical which kills them before it kills all of your skin. I can only make it 9 or 10 days....then I get a big fever blister, face is all torn up and I stop. It is amazing how fast my face heals though. I've been after it for the past 35 years. 1917

+1 on that. I had only one eye done over a yr ago and am still having problems with it. If this ever clears up I will do the other eye too. Had this happened to both eyes I would be unable to type this.

Thatís why your hair falls out and your finger nails get brittle. The chemo goes after rapid growing cells like hair and fingernails, and hopefully the cancer itself.

You get 10-15% more UV every 1,000 up you go. I've spent a LOT of time north of 37,000 feet and airplane windshields aren't polarized

dlong, that is exactly correct. FlysAlot, it makes you wonder why some simple things don't get done. 1917
