However, after the condition is under control, the number of eye drops should be gradually reduced, and the medication should be stopped until the condition is cured. Some people can't live without eye drops for a long time because of keratitis. They always feel that they are not at ease if they don't use eye drops. They may get keratitis or conjunctivitis again, and develop a psychology of dependence. However, any effective anti-infective drug has a certain degree of drug resistance. When the eye develops drug resistance if the cornea and conjunctiva are infected and inflamed again, the effect of dripping the same kind of eye drops will not be good. Instead, it may cause damage to the eyes.
