Eye ointments should always be applied a few minutes AFTER any eye drops are applied. Be aware that ointment will blur your vision for a few minutes. Use the following steps to apply ointment:

  1. Sit down comfortably and put your head back.
  2. Pull your lower lid down.
  3. Apply ointment into the pocket that is formed when your lid is pulled away from your eye. You can put in about ½ inch strip of ointment. Try not to touch the tip of the tube to the lids.
  4. Blinking the eyes will spread the ointment to the upper lids as well.
  5. If you are unable to apply the ointment as described above, you can also put some ointment on your clean index finger and wipe the ointment onto the edge of your eyelids while the eyes are closed.
  6. Wipe off the excess with a clean tissue.
