FYI, I emailed Allergan to find out if their drops that I use, Restasis and Refresh, are gluten-free. This is what I heard back:

We understand that you would like to know if REFRESH Classic,
Restasis® and REFRESH Contacts are gluten-free.  To the best of our

I can back that up myself as I use both of these products and have for years and have never had a problem with either.  You will find that the vast majority, if not all eyedrops, will not contain a gluten ingredient.  Allergan is a pretty reputable company also.
