How does pinching your nose stop drops from going into tear ducts? What you should do when putting eye drops in is to tilt your head so they run away from the inner corner of your eye.
Something like that. You dont pinch your nose though. After putting the drop in your eye, place your clean (wash your hands before using the drops) finger and gently press the inner corner of your eye for a few minutes. This allows the eye to absorb the drug rather than it running down the lacrimal duct into your nose.
