Getting Those Eye Drops in your Eyes!

Eye DropsHas your doctor ever prescribed eye drops for you? Are you tired of trying to hold your eyelids open with one hand while attempting to land a drop in the eye? It seems many times patients blink just at the wrong time, or land the drop on their forehead or nose.

Here’s the trick. Tip your head back and CLOSE YOUR EYES. Place the tip of the dropper at the border of your eye closest to your nose and squeeze out a drop. You should feel the coolness of the drop at this location. Now simply open your eye and the drop will fall right in…piece of cake!
