JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Anything else I can tell the Doctor before I connect you two?
Customer: i did hold him down and put eye drops in... after that he seemed to open them a little more. I don't know if he was tired from the trauma but now he is down for a nap.

If you notice extensive redness, swelling you need to take him to doctor.

He may feel photophobia or light sensitivity.

I hope there will be no damage from the little ointment.
