Instruction for application of drugs to the eye

Instruction for application of drugs to the eye

1.Wash your hands with soap and water before and after use to reduce transmission of microorganism to the eye

2.If there is crust or discharge , clean the eyelids with a wet cotton ball with warm water and gently wipe the lid from the inner corner in an outward direction with the eye closed to avoid entrance of microorganisms into the eye .

3.Shake the bottle if it contain suspension .

4.Open the bottle carefullly so that the tip of the eyedropper does not touch anything.

5.Tilt Your head back and pull your lower eyelid with the tip of your finger to form a pocket and look up to ease installation of medication and to minimize drainage of medication through the lacrimal duct.

6.Hold the dropper at least 1_2 cm above the eye with the other hand and squeeze the correct number of drops into the pocket between your lower lid and eyeball without touching the lid with the tip of the bottle.

7.Close your eyes slowly and gently press a finger against the inside corner of each eye and keep them closed for approximately 1 minute to allow the medication to absorb. This helps distribution of medicine evenly whereas squinting or squeezing of eyelids forces medicine out from conjunctival sac .

8.After using the eye drop don't rinse or wipe the dropper.Keep the bottle clean and tightly closed when you are not using it .

9.When using multiple medications , wait for a few minutes between each application to ensure the eyes have enough time to absorb .

10.If the doctor prescribe you with a combination of eye drops and ointments, and these medications have to be taken at the same time ,Always remember to apply the eye drops a few minutes before the eye ointment since the ointment Hinders the drops absorption.
