Lay the kiddo on his back, tell him to close his eyes. Squeeze the drop into the corner nearest his nose and tell him to open his eyes. Stand by with tissues so he can wipe away any excess.

Also giving one sticker each time he or she "is brave" might make it less painful.

I was literally coming here to tell you the EXACT same thing that Kate told you. That is how I put eye drops in my own eyes...eye drops freak me out!
