This is welcome news for those who hate to see Viroptic’s  effect on the cornea, and wondering if the patient is taking the drop nine times a day. Zirgan is equally effective, easier on the eye, and only five times a day. Kudos to Sirion Therapeutics. I know I will probably never go back to Viroptic…unless ObamaCare says it’s too expensive.
