Taking Your Eyedrop Medication


Description

The How to Take Your Eye Medication fact sheet details a technique called nasolacrimal occlusion (NLO) that was designed to reduce the amount of medication that enters the body through the tear ducts, therefore reducing medication side effects. The fact sheet contains illustrations to demonstrate how to correctly use the NLO technique.
