Eye drops are used to lower eye pressure where the pressure remains high despite other treatments.
Glaucoma eye drops
If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, your doctor may prescribe eye drops to control pressure in your eye. These drops are applied onto the surface of the eye and may cause stinging or burning.
How to use eye drops
If you have never used eye drops before, it may take just a bit of practice to get them into your eye, because the natural reflex is to blink to avoid the drops.
