In brief: Per directions

If they are prescription drops, use them according to the directions.
If they are over the counter, don't use them more often than the packaging recommends. For artificial tears, you can use them as often as you like, but if they begin to burn or cause the eye to be red, you should cut back of stop them. Preservative free drops may be needed.
