Woman Suffers Chemical Burns After Given Erectile Dysfunction Cream for Dry Eye

A woman suffered chemical injuries after being mistakenly prescribed erectile dysfunction cream for a dry eye, according to a report.  The patient from Scotland had to be treated after mistakenly receiving Vitaros cream instead of ocular lubricant VitA-POS. She was treated with antibiotics, lubricants, and steroids for her blurred vision and eyelid swelling.

The error has led specialists from Glasgow’s Tennent Institute of Ophthalmology remind doctors to take greater care prescribing medication.
