    Yes, you'd better not use expired eye drops. If there use the eye drops, you may likely to get a batieria infection. manufactures usually will make them safe up to 3 to 6 months after. of course, this also depends on where you have them stored. If you keep your eye drops in cool and dry places, it may stored for a longer time. Anyway, you are strongly recommend to buy new eye drops instead.
