Most people find putting eye drops in to be a real challenge, these tips for applying eye drops makes the application a cinch. You won't blink or waste a drop by following this method. Have your dropper ready. Then, in front of the mirror, use a finger placed on the skin below the eye to pull the lower lid down slightly to form a pocket. Place the drop in the pocket, release the skin and close the eye momentarily. Your eye will be bathed in the solution and you will not feel the uncontrollable urge to blink.
