It's actually quite easy to use eye drops, but many people don't know how.
Just follow these basic steps:
Tilt back your head, so the drops will stay in your eye.
Gently tug or pull out the lower eyelid near your nose to form a well.
Keep your eye open.
Hold the bottle far enough away from your eye that it doesn't touch, and then squeeze.
Shut your eye for a moment, then blink several times to distribute the eye drop.
Follow these same steps for eye ointments, and don't let the tip of the tube touch any part of your eye.
