My 84-year-old mother, had a corneal transplant and was seeing her doctor for a routine checkup a week later. She had been prescribed different medi-cations in two similar-looking eye-drop bottles, so we clearly marked them to indicate the order in which they had to be administered. The nurse was checking her eye pressure before she went in to see the doctor and asked what medicines she was on.
