Keeping Track of My Eye Drop Administration

I have found that relying on my own memory to put in my eye drops hasn't been so effective. I have tried setting alarms on my phone but found them to be disruptive when they go off, and I tend to snooze them or just turn them off.

An app that I found in the app store for my iPhone is called Medisafe. It allows me to set reminders for my phone in the sense that it's a text message, rather than a loud ring, and it also marks if I have done it or not. If I ignore the text that it sends, it does not mark it complete. This has been helpful getting in the 10-12 eye drops a day that I need.
