I have been using eyedrops for dry eyes and to treat my conjunctivitis.
Sometimes putting drops into my eye I miss the eye and the drop land onto my upper eyelid...
Does this cause any harm to the eyelid or my upper eyelashes? Because my eyelids are very dry and I see red veins which are located right above my upper eyelashes...I am kinda worried....
An answer would be very much appreciated!
Thank you so much! :)
Artificial tears or allergy drops will not hurt your eye lids. One good way to get the drop into the eye and not waste it by having the drop land on the lids, is to instill the eye drops by looking into a mirror (a magnifying mirror works great). Look directly into the mirror, gently pull the lower eye lid down and place the drop into the lower lid pocket, then close your eyes for a minute and dry your lids.
