Eyedrops are prescribed by doctors to treat acute or long-term ocular conditions. Proper instillation is critical to ensure effectiveness and also avoid contamination or infection.

Did you know?
30% of patients miss the mark and hit their eyelids or cheeks with the eyedrops.
70% touch the bottle tip to their eyelashes or eyelids.
1/6 of one drop will fill your eye so using more than one eyedrop is a waste.

Some additional notes:
– For Step 3, only some prescription medications require you to press your finger to your eye and keep it closed.
– Do not touch the dropper tip to any surface including your eyeball, eyelid or eyelashes. If you do so, consider the bottle contaminated.
– Don’t forget to routinely check the expiry date on your eyedrops.
– Do not instill a double dose to make up for a missed dose! Contact your doctor to determine the best course of action.
