Administering eye drops

For children who have difficulty allowing the caretaker to administer eye drops, have them lay flat and close their eyes. Place several drops in the medial corner of the eye – when they open their eye, the drops will seep in. If a caretaker is going to use this technique, be sure to prescribe extra volume of medication. This method is shown ~0.42 in this video, which is a useful video overall showing several techniques.
