You need so little of it I would be afraid to mess with borax. No eye drops at a pharmacy?

Most cheap eye drops are boric acid in a mild saline solution. The dropper bottle would be easier to control but I would have no idea how much you would need.

A lb of CSM+B lasts into forever unless your a real fish tank nut. Easily found online.
