My mum is having difficulty putting in her eyedrops due to low visibility in the other eye. Are there alternatives to eyedrops after cataract surgery?
No, but her eye doctor should be able to show her easier ways to put in the drops—which can be done even with the eyes being closed! Also, putting tape on different parts of the bottle can make it easier to differentiate one drop from another. Also, ask for some of the newer drops that can be used less frequently.
