My 89 year old mother, who has Vascular Dementia and possibly Frontotemporal dementia, as well, has very dry, irritated eyes. The optometrist has instructed us to put special drops in her eyes twice a day. Even when I try to get her lying down in bed, she squeezes her eyes tight shut, making it very hard to instill even a single drop. To make matters worse, I'm losing hand strength. I can't squeeze the bottle AND hold her lower lid open. Any suggestions? Has anyone else been through this?
