Can I use Liquid Gels past the Expiration date?

Postby slee104611 » Thu Feb 08, 2007 3:06 pm


I noticed that the packs of Theratears Liquid Gels have an expiration date of 11-2006. Can I still use them? Since they are individually sealed vials and each 4 pack is wrapped in a foil wraper it seems like they would still be ok and I'm not sure why 3 months would make a difference. But then again, since these are my only pair of eyes so I want to be sure not to do anything to harm them :)

Thank you

Do not use them. They do deteriorate. It is really not worth the cost to put something that may be unhealthy into your eyes.
