Following are some measures you can take. Prevent your kids to touching his eyes with his hands, which will get his eyes infected very easily. Secondly, let your kid wash hands as often as he can, and it will be better if he uses a soap to wash hands. Thirdly, you can prepare a clean towel for your kid for daily. Remember, never let your kid share his towel with others. And don't share his eye drops with others, either. This is a quite wrong behavior.
