Make Applying Eye Drops Simple

When I administer eye drops, I first explain what I am going to do to relax the person. Positioning is also important so that I apply drops successfully and do not waste the eye medications. I prefer to have a resident sit is a chair that permits them to comfortably lean their head back. This allows me to be well balanced above the eye and see what I am doing, and lets gravity do most of the work. spacer
