Irrigate the Eye and Instill Medication

As a nurse or medical assistant in a doctor's office, you may be asked to assist with minor eye injuries or eye treatment. This module provides a detailed overview of how to prepare for and perform irrigation of the patient’s eye and instill eye medication. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers two scenarios that test your ability to irrigate the eye with sterile saline solution and instill drops of medication into the eye. Practice the steps of the procedures online as often as you want, until you are confident. This module is based on the entry-level competencies for which the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) test the Medical Assistant.
