-- You may be wary about applying those new eyedrops prescribed by your doctor. The Cleveland Clinic recommends: Use warm water and soap to wash your hands, then dry with a clean towel. Either grab a mirror or lie down before applying the medicine. Look up at the ceiling, then use one hand to pull down the lower eyelid. Hold the medicine in your other hand, resting on your forehead if needed. Without letting the tip of the bottle or tube touch the eye, gently place the medicine inside your lower eyelid.
