New, Innovative Easy Drop Glasses from Lunovus Help Ensure Easier, More Precise Eye Drop Applications

Oct 8, 2020

It’s perfectly normal to see patients struggle with their prescription eye drops, particularly the elderly, or patients using them for the first time. The fact remains that eye drops remain the most effective way to treat many common eye diseases, including dry eye disease, glaucoma, and uveitis. They are also critical steps in pre-surgical protocols for most refractive and cataract surgery patients.

In order to be effective, however, eye drops have to be used correctly. And, when a patient isn’t confident in their ability to carry out at-home eye drop applications, they may not stay compliant with the treatment plan their doctor gives them.

Why Patients Might Not Be Able to Apply Their Own Eye Drops

There are a number of relatable reasons a patient may struggle with putting in eye drops themselves:There are a number of relatable reasons a patient may struggle with putting in eye drops themselves:

  • Discomfort with holding objects — even a contact lens — close to their eye, causing a natural “wincing” reaction
  • Eye sensitivity due to their current eye condition
  • Dexterity issues or a non-optical condition such as Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, or carpal tunnel can cause a patient to have unsteady hand control

All the training in the world won’t help some people when it comes to sensitivity around their eyes, and even assistance from someone at the time of applications may not help enough to resolve the issue.

Minimizing Waste, Maximizing Patient Success

Eye drops, especially with a prescription, can be expensive. When medicine gets spilled, or when patients skip doses out of frustration, money is wasted, and patients can feel misled when their treatment doesn’t work as well as it should have. In fact, some patients will simply give up and stop using their drops, which can have severe negative consequences on both their eye health and on the safety of the procedure if they’re using drops prior to surgery.

At Lunovus, we’ve heard from doctors who worry that their patients’ difficulties using drops may be affecting the outcome of their treatment. In response, we engineered a pair of glasses to be a stabilizing barrier that can hold a bottle of eye drops a safe distance from the eye and allow the patient to easily aim the drops. Easy Drop Glasses are a new way for all types of patients to easily use their eye drops as directed, without wasting a single drop.
