I put it in the corners of my eyes and blink to spread it on the whole eye. With this treatment the use of over the counter drops and the eye stents and warm compresses,after my cataract surgery on my right eye the vision had improved so much that until the cataract in my left eye worsens, I won't need the surgery and I passed the eye test for my drivers license without glasses.
