Re: how many drops in milliliter?

If you want to be tickish, the question must be clarified as to a drop "of what" "at what temperature" and "at what pressure" "per whose definition" etc.

Not being tickish, myself, I would have responded-----TWENTY.

[But perhaps you'd rather dispute with the wise old owl over his answer to the question, "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie-Pop?"]

Hi, unless you are dosing a plant, or training to be a nurse, I would leave this to the medical professionals. Not something to get wrong.

If you are fixing up a plant, get the plant shop to show you what to do. If you are training to be a nurse, feel free to resister, and send a private message to me or any of the others who answer questions. I understand not everyone can ask their tutors.

And as we all remember, the answer to that is Three!

Re: how many drops in milliliter?

This question is now very important: the pharmaceutical plans' "bean counters" have produced a "cost savings" (read that as a profit increase) to the plans when they recently decided that there is no spillage and no evapration when providing patients with eye drops AND that they will dispense NO more total drops than are prescribed AND no more than the manufacturers provide in a bottle. Thus, if there are 20 drops per mL and the prescription is written for 3 drops per eye per day(6 drops total per day), a 90 day supply should be 540 drops or 27 mL. If the eye drop manufacturer has only 10 mL bottles to dispense then the plan will only provide 2 bottles for a total of 20 mL or 400 drops at the cost for a 90 day supply. This is a shortfall of 140 drops or about 23 days out of 90 prescribed. The plans will allow a paient to reorder "early", at an additional coet, of course. This results in a 35% increase in costs for the patient. Damn these bean counters!

See post #9. Pick a definition, pick any definition.

Reality depends on the dropper, the liquid, and the temperature, but there are multiple "standard" definitions between 50 µL and 99 µL per drop (20 to 10 drops per mL).

Re: how many drops in milliliter?

I just called the pharmicist at CVS and she said 20 drops equal 1 ml.
My baby needs .3 ml of medicine so that's 6 drops (20 x .3 = 6).

Re: how many drops in milliliter?

Wikipedia is quite accurate here. I called the manufacturer of some eyedrops I am using, and was told that there are 100 eyedrops in a 5ml bottle (20 drops per ml) of one of the medications I am using, while there are 150 drops in a 5ml bottle of another, due to its thinner viscousity.

Close enough to determine how many days, at 4 drops per day, these bottles will last. 25 days for the first, 37.5 for the second.
