Eyes – Instillation of Eye Drops

Eye DropsTo apply eye drops, gently pull your lower eyelid down with one hand and look upward.  Place one drop of solution in the cavity created between your lower eyelid and your eye.

Try not to touch the tip of the applicator to your eye.  If you are instilling a medication, after the application, close your eyes for a few seconds.  While your eye is closed, apply gentle pressure with your index finger to the inner angle of the eye next to your nose.

This allows the medication to stay in contact with your eye tissues longer delivering maximum benefit.
