In brief: Eye drops

Gently pull the lower lid down and out, tip the head back and drop it into the lower pocke formed by pullin the lower lid down and out.
There is an attachment for bottles that can also help. You can also try lying flat with face up and drop into corner fo the eye near the nose and then blink allowing the drop to run into the eye. Have someone else place the drop in the eye.
