The most common ophthalmic drugs are mostly administered topically as eye drops to the corneal surface.

Thus topical ocular delivery mostly results in low ocular bioavailability.

What order should eye drops be given?

If you’re using eye drops and an eye ointment, use the eye drops first. Then apply the ointment at least 10 minutes later. Do understand it’s normal for some liquid to flow onto the skin around your eyes after using an eye drop.

Absorption of topically administered drug is through permeation across the cornea from pre-corneal tear film or through systemic absorption through local blood capillaries at cul-de-sac (5, 31). Tear film and cul-de-sac may enlarge up to 30μl in volume under enlarged conditions (8, 31).
