How can I instill drops in my child´s eye?

Getting the drops in your children's eyes

Many kids dislike eye drops because they can see you instilling them. An alternate way to use them would be to have them close their eyes. Then place a drop in the corner of their eye. When the eye is then opened, the drop will flush across the eye surface. Adults that have trouble with the "pocket" method can try this as well.
