In 2016 an important,  CSEPS-championed law was passed in the Colorado legislature that provides important protections for patients, especially those with chronic eye conditions like glaucoma that require regular eyedrops. If patients run out of drops because of unintentional wastage before the prescription is due, then they can get a refill within certain time frames.

The problem is that many patients and even some ophthalmologists are unaware of these protections. CSEPS has developed a one-page fact sheet that details the law. CSEPS recommends that ophthalmologists both share this information with patients and encourage them to utilize these this resource so that they can get the medicine they need.
