    • Overview

      Our eye sight is indeed our most precious sense. We have rows upon rows of products in the over the counter section of our pharmacies. Whether it is hypertonic saline or the contact lens solutions most of us are very uncomfortable in this section. We also have some options out front that at one time were in the pharmacy inventory and can be a cheaper alternative for our patients that are uninsured or have high deductibles. Fortunately for me I am blessed to have a niece, Dr. Rachel Fritz who is an optometrist, and is part of the FreeCE faculty. She has reviewed this program for content and accuracy.
