How to use eye drops Allergy Eye Drops

The procedure to use eye drops is explained in brief below:

  • Wash your hands well before using eye drops to prevent any infection to the eyes. Remove the cap from the eye drops bottle.
  • Lie down or tilt your head backwards.
  • With the index finger of one hand, gently pull down the lower eyelid of the affected eye.
  • Hold the eye drops bottle between the thumb and the index finger of the other hand.
  • Gently squeeze it so that a drop falls into the pocket of the lower eyelid. Avoid touching the tip of the bottle to the eye.
  • Gently close the eyes for a few minutes.
  • The inner corner of the eye may be blocked for some time by pressing a finger against it to prevent the eyedrop from draining into the nose.
  • Replace the cap and wash your hands again.
  • Contact lenses should be removed before putting most eye drops and should be replaced after a minimum of 10 15 minutes.(5)
