Developed by Gerresheimer, DropAid helps dropper bottle users to open the bottle and makes it easy and simple to position the dropper correctly above the eye.
Ideal for senior patients and children, the solution has a circular aperture which fits perfectly onto the eye drop bottle top and helps to open it with very little effort or pressure. If DropAid is placed vertically on the bottle neck with the crescent part clipped onto the open bottle, it can be rested firmly on the side of the eye so that the correct number of drops can be given.
“We put ourselves in the shoes of the person who has to use the eye drops and considered how we could make it easier to use,” said Niels Düring, Global Senior Vice President Plastic Packaging at Gerresheimer.
“That’s how we came up with this small but extremely useful DropAid that we’d like to recommend to all our customers who manufacture eye drops. It will also help them to ensure better compliance in the medications.”
