I recently found out that I may be going to the eye doctor in a few weeks or so. I'm nervous b/c I think I might get eyedrops to dialate my eyes or something. I've had some bad experiences w/ eyedrops, causing me (at the age of almost 15) to sorta fear them. I wanna overcome the fear and prepare myself.
My question is: What's the best way to overcome fear of eyedrops? Should I sprinkle water in my eye to prepare myself, close my eye and ask the eye dr. to put it in the corner and then I open my eye or what?
Hmm, I hate eyedrops also. If possible, try not to think about it at all. If not…then try getting over the counter saline eye drops and have a friend put them in your eyes…try out different ways that make you feel comfortable. Do not use water as it could cause an infection.
