Compliance aids step by step guides- ComplEye®

The ComplEye® is specifically created for the Hylo range of multi-dose eye drops, such as Hylo-Tears and Hylo-Forte. It is designed to help you with the stable positioning of the bottle over your eye, so you can accurately squeeze a drop into your eye.


Instructions for use:

  • After washing your hands, place the bottle into the holder with the nozzle facing towards the eye piece.
  • Lie down or sit down comfortably, remove the bottle cap and tilt your head back.
  • With the viewing hole of the aid facing upwards,use the aid to help you lower your bottom eye lid so the lower part of the aid rests near/on your cheek bone. Place the top part of the aid on near/on your brow bone.
  • Position your thumbs either side of the eye piece to reach the button press at the end of the bottle.
  • When ready, look up through the viewing hole, and squeeze the button to release a drop.
  • Unless your clinician has advised otherwise, close your eye and gently press the inside corner for 30 seconds to help prevent the drop entering your mouth.
