I think my doctor wrote the wrong thing by putting "use in LEFT eye" when the problem is in the right eye

her office is closed but I need to take them :(

can anyone on here help - i know this isn't a medical advice forum but

Diclofenac is just an NSAID, though I do think your doctor or someone down the line made a simple mistake on the Rx, you never know her reasoning.
Using it in your left eye won't do any damage to it. Holding off on using it would also be totally okay. NSAIDS just help with inflammation and pain which your body automatically does,
Can I ask why post in Neuro? (Optho)
