My Grandma was recently diagnosed with blepharitis and I'm supposed to apply ointment to the affected eye - the instructions from the doctor say "apply to affected eyelid three times a day". I called to clarify if that meant the outer eyelid or the inner eyelid and the receptionist said outer after looking in Grandma's chart.
Does that sound right to you all? The instructions from the pharmacy and drug manufacturer indicate that the ointment goes in the eye.
Since we're on the topic, what is the best way to apply ointment to the inner eyelid or eye? I can never get it in the pouch you're supposed to make. It ends up on the eye and I'm not sure if that's ok. I'm much better with drops.
