Eye drop routine

Our 14 year old cat Katie has glaucoma that we keep under control by giving her a drop of Timolol in each eye twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. She hates it. My wife administers the drops and I feed her and clean her litter. We decided on this approach so that Katie would at least not feel threatened by one of us. Unfortunately, it has gotten to the point where Katie will only come out from hiding when my wife is not home. In other words, I get all her affection/attention and my wife has to chase her around the house. I'm willing to share the drop giving job, but we're both afraid that Katie will never come out for love again if we do. Should we risk it, or can anyone think of a different routine that might work?
