Yes: If you're having trouble because the drops burn or hurt, you should contact your doc. They may be able to replace it a less irritation drop. If you physically can't put the drops in, have someone do it for you. Or lay on your bed and drop it in the corner of your eye and then open your eyes. Either way, let you doc know.
