You shouldn’t itch your eyes as it can make them worse; rather, you should find a suitable treatment option to relieve your symptoms.
How do I use eye drops?
You can apply eye drops while sitting, standing or lying down - whatever you find the easiest and most comfortable.
Tilt your head back and position your finger below your lower-lid and gently pull down to form a pocket.
Look upwards and squeeze the bottle until the recommended drops are deposited into the pocket.
Then close your eyes, don’t blink, and keep them closed for a couple of minutes to allow the product to sink in.
Afterwards, dab around your eyes to remove any excess product.
