I found all the videos most helpful, especially on the correct way to administer the eyedrops. Everything is explained very clearly. Congratulations to the team for such an excellent website.

The demonstration of the correct technique for applying eyedrops is great - much better explained than any leaflet with the drops, and therefore people are much more likely to do it properly. Thank you all.
