Self-administration: Using Eardrops

It is usually easier to have someone else apply eardrops for you than to do it yourself. If the eardrops are being kept in the fridge, allow them to warm to room temperature before they are applied.

Instilling eardrops

Tilt the head and squeeze the eardrops into the ear canal. Keep the head tilted for a minute to let the eardrops settle.
