How to use eye drops and eye ointments wisely
Posted on Jul 03, 2015
Today there are various eye drops available to relieve almost every type of eye discomfort. From allergic eyes to computer-strained eyes, there are eye drops to alleviate redness, dryness, blurriness and much more.

Eye drops are normally used to eliminate minor discomforts. If you are experiencing extended discomfort, you should contact your eye doctor immediately. Eye drops are good for getting rid of redness caused by allergies or lack of sleep. They can also be used to treat dry eyes. Eye drops relieve ocular pressure and help prevent glaucoma by preventing the overproduction of tears or helping to remove fluids from the eyes.

When choosing an eye drop it is best to pick one that will relieve your particular symptoms. For individuals suffering from allergies, an eye drop containing an antihistamine is best. For people with dry eyes, lubricating eye drops are helpful.

How to safely use Eye Drops

Although many people can administer their own eye drops easily, for others the task is not as simple. Whether you are using over-the-counter or prescription eye drops use the step-by-step guide below to help you administer them correctly:
  • Wash your hands with soap and water
  • Shake the bottle gently
  • Unscrew the cap
  • Tilt your head back and gaze upward at the ceiling you can sit or stand
  • With your dominant hand, hold the bottle between your thumb and forefinger
  • Bring the bottle up to your eye
  • Using the little finger on your dominant hand, pull down the lower eyelid
  • While holding the bottle above your open eyelid, squeeze it so that one drop falls onto the eye
  • If the eye drop makes it into your eye, let go of your eyelid and close your eye
  • Repeat on the other eye

Remember these points for a smooth process

  • Avoid letting the bottle touch your eyeball
  • Avoid letting the eye drops run down into your nose and throat
  • If you are unsuccessful the first time, try administering a second drop
  • If you are unable to administer the eye drops, ask a family member or friend to help you
  • Store your eye drops in the refrigerator

Right application of eye ointments

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before administration
  • Remove the cap from the tube and hold the tube as if you are holding a pen
  • Tilt your head slightly backwards and look up
  • Using the index finger of your free hand, gently pull down your lower eyelid to form a pouch and with a sweeping motion, squeeze the tube. Ensure that the tip of the tube does not touch your eye
  • Release your finger and blink your eye gently
  • Eye ointments can cause blurred vision for a few minutes, as the medication is quite viscous. You should remain safely and comfortably seated until this has resolved

If your eyes don’t heal even after correctly applying eye drops and ointments, visit an eye specialist immediately.
