Take your eye drops as prescribed by your doctor.
Keep drops cooled so you can feel them go in the eye.
Keep the dropper clean and do not touch it with any part of your eye.
Wash your hands first.
Stand in front of the mirror.
Use a handkerchief if tissues are too rough.
Use your finger as a guide.
Rest your hand on your face to help steady your hand.
Make a pocket in your lower lid and instill the drop into the pocket.
Occlude your tear duct by gently pressing the tear duct closed where the inner eye meets the nose for at least one minute.
Don’t pinch, since pinching could squeeze out the drops.
Sing a nursery rhyme that will take you at least one minute while you occlude.
Wait ten minutes between drops.
