Q. I’ve got an easy way to put in eye drops. Bend your head back, close your eye and put the drop in the corner. Open your eye and the drop will automatically run in.
A. Putting drops in your own eyes can be challenging. Getting the drop in the corner of the eye with your eyes closed might be hard unless you can enlist some help. If someone else can get the drop into the corner of the closed eye while you are lying down, it’s easy enough to open the eye briefly. Then close the lid for two minutes so the medicine spreads over the surface of the eye.
If you are doing this for yourself, here’s an alternate approach: pull the lower lid out gently to make a little pouch. Put the drop into the pouch and close the eye for two minutes.
