    Thanks Ivan! These are cool stuff for medical needs. Often missed by travelers – but definitely essential-to-great to bring along in your Taiwan tour! 🙂

    P.S. For photo buffs, the Eye drop/ wash is helpful for keeping your eyes moist and refreshing tired eyes. We once bought an eyedrop off the shelf at Watson Raohe, Taipei. At a whopping TWD300!? ;-(

    What to do? My eyes were smartingly painful that 2nd day of our Taipei honeymoon.. So NT300 used in a moment haha! ;-(
    I’m curious: Is it ok to continue using the eye drop after 1 mth – for a few weeks more?

    At ur own risk then. Lol. It’s recommended nt to. But sometimes I do use oso. Haha. Coz e preservatives are meant to last only 1mth after opening. After 1mth it would nt be effective n lots of bacteria would hv built up.

    Eye drop after 1 mth = low preservative = high bacteria = risk to eyes. I wouldn’t risk my eyesight this way. Thks Ivan!
