    Chloramphenicol Eye Ointment

    This stuff is maddening! It does not apply easily and wither stays stuck to the tube or to the eyelashes. More than once I have lost my tmeper trying to get it into my eye. If offered this again I would request eye drops, much less troublesome and I actually might get to work on time.
