Some kinds of eye drop such as Latanoprost, Chloramphenicol, Cefazolin, Ceftazidime, Vancomycin and Amphotericin B need to be kept at the temperature of 2-8 degree celsius to maintain their efficiency. Patients are usually recommended to keep these drugs in the refrigerator while dispensing. However, the temperature in the refrigerator is not consistent especially the refrigerator’s door has higher temperature than other parts.
