I have no problems with eyedrops myself; I just walk up to the mirror and drop in the drops. But my husband can't bear to touch his eyes or put anything in them, and I can't think of any way the system could be improved for someone like him.
As it is, I make him lie down and then I sit on his chest, hold his eyes open, and put the drops in.
Thanks for your reply its much appreciated.
You mentioned that you cant think of another system to aid this process, which is why i am trying to design a more 'dignified' method of eye drop application.
Do you think that having a product that gently sprays a controlled, light mist into the eye would appeal to someone like your husband, who is otherwise deterred by eye drops. Or even you as it means you don't have to do it for him?
