Eye drops are used to treat a wide variety of conditions — from glaucoma and eye infections, to allergies and dry eyes. In many cases, eye drops are essential to preserving your vision and protecting your eyes.
To get the greatest benefit from eye drops, you must use them properly.
Your eye doctor or pharmacist may give you instructions that are specific to the prescription eye drops you need. But in most cases, the proper technique for applying eye drops is the same, whether you are using prescription or over-the-counter formulas.
