Eye Care/Health Care Professionals: We hope you find this unique database a good resource of information on the ever increasing quantity and sophistication of eye drops, ocular surface hygiene products, dietary supplements etc.

You will soon discover that, although it is called Eye Drops Database, and it was originally intended to be based on eye drops alone, from its launch in March 2015 it has quickly grown to include other types of eye care products and services that Eye Care/Health Care Professionals would want to know about.

In the early days every product may not be listed, or have full data. Every effort is being made to fill in the gaps as soon as possible. It will continue to grow in breadth and depth as data arrives and products are released, almost on a daily basis. If you would like to propose products for the database, have any ideas, suggestions, would like to provide missing data or see any factual inaccuracies please email contact us or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This site is intended for Health Care/Eye Care Professionals, it cannot be stressed too highly that any intended user of this site should read the Disclaimer and Guidance on use of EyeDropsDatabase.co.uk found on this site before using it. The prior reading of Glossary and Search Tips on use of EyeDropsDatabase.co.uk will also help the optimum use and understanding of the database. 

Endeavours will be made to include information on 'retailers' drops such as Sainsbury's, Superdrug etc, so you can have data available when your Px tells you they are using Tesco Allergy Drops (Sodium Cromoglicate) and asks "can I use it with my contact lenses?" 

In October 2015 Mr Ross Ferguson BSc(Hons) MRPharmS joined Eye Drops Database as Pharmaceutical Consultant, bringing increased sharing of data between optometry and pharmacy, pharmacy OTC products and prescription products to benefit both professions and their patients.  I would like to thank Mr Martin Blasczyk as Web Master for his help, ideas and guidance on the IT aspect of this endeavour, and Mr Colin Jones FBDO(Hons) CL of Merton Beck Opticians, Widnes for assistance in providing technical data on many products. 

In November 2015 the first of a number of Referral Directories was included (Referral Directories in menu list), the first being a Dry Eye/Blepharitis Referral Directory to aid ECPs/HCPs who wish to refer patients for specialist treatment. If you are a practice offering this service and would like further information on how to be included in this directory please email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In January 2016 further Referral Directories, for specialist Contact Lens prescribing and Ophthalmology services were added, again if you are interested in being included in these directories please email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In February 2016 a completely new product entry level was created to answer the need for more images and technical and/or clinical information, the choice now is being Featured or Premium Featured.

March 2016 saw the legal classification of products relating to their listing on NHS Drug Tariffs, with most products being listed on both NHS England & Wales and NHS Scotland Tafiffs (NHS Rx), however a few are only available on one or the other (NHS Eng&Wal Rx or NHS Sco Rx). As new Tariffs are published monthly, no guarantee can be made as to the accuracy of classification. If you notice any inaccuracies please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In May 2016 a completely new Patient Section was added which will continue to grow and evolve. 

June 2016 saw the exciting and extremely useful Eye Safety Card added, this should probably have a shortcut of its own placed on your computer desktop, tablet or mobile device. It may not be over dramatic to say this could be sight saving!

Search tips.

The search is not case sensitive. I have tried to avoid hyphens, so a product produced and labelled Preservative-Free is Preservative Free in the database.

You can search for words, or parts of words, do not enter commas, full stops etc, just the word itself. For instance to search for Preservative Free listed products, a search for the word free will identify all the products you want, do double check your results if using this type of shorthand in your search, as the word free may be used in a different context on the product page ie; phosphate free . Another example of many I could use; if you want to identify products that are osmoprotective, a search for osmop will identify all the products you want. 

The search facility is intended to narrow down products that fulfil your criteria, it is not intended to give a perfect product match, so the narrowed down product pages that it finds should be checked by the user. If you have spare time entering in search words will enable you to get to know the database better.

Ticking the 'Contact Lens Use?' box will identify all products that have their use with contact lenses as their 'Prime Indication' or can be used with contact lenses 'If required'.

If you do see any errors or omissions in the glossary or search tips, please contact us, your input would be gratefully received.

Product suppliers: If you supply any eye care related product you now have the choice of being Featured with your product image, your choice of text, your website link and company logo or being brand new Premium Featured with all the above plus multiple images and PDFs. Premium Featured products carry even more marketing impact and convey lots of clinical and/or technical information to the prospective ECP/HCP purchaser. If you would like to upgrade your product entry in Eye Drops Database to Featured or Premium Featured or place your product into the database for the first time at either level please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. News of Featured or Premium Featured products is posted on LinkedIn and relayed to the Eye Drops Database subscribers list. Specific page sponsorship in the form of banner advertising is available email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

The development and compilation of this database and the directories is a continuing labour of love, we hope you find it useful and interesting.
