I managed the Eyedrops

Well, I got my eyedrops. The pharmacy delivered them this afternoon. The guy who delivered them knows I am blind. Still he threw them in my letterbox, and only for I was standing in the hall I wouldnt have heard them drop onto the floor. After he put the package in my letterbox he rang the doorbell, but then he walked away from the door. I thought that was pretty ridiculous.
The drops the doctor gave me, I’ve had them before. They are called maxitrol. I had them to treat dry eye before. They work well. The only thing is that I don’t know how often they are supposed to be put in. I will have to get Frances to read the instructions to me tomorrow. The label is brailled, it says maxitrol, but there is no label in braille to tell me how often they should go in.
I tried putting them in earlier. It went well. I was able to manage it on my own. I did manage to pour some of it down my face, but the majority of the drop went in my eyes.
So I’m pleased. Its good I could do it on my own. I’m happy about that.
Hopefully putting them in for a few days will clear up the irritation, it seems like there may be a slight infection in my eyes. They were sticky this morning when I woke up, and stuff was coming out of them. It was horrible.
