Eye drop squeezer
Sudha needs to regularly treat her eyes with drops but cannot squeeze the 20mm long capsules because of arthritic hands. No compact commercial device was available.
The device consists of two handles hinged together at one end. An eye drop capsule is placed as shown.
The handles are aluminium and the “hinge” is made of stiff but flexible plastic sheet. The hinge sheet has a hole to admit the capsule with the cap in place but already loosened. The handles at the hinged end are grooved to trap the capsule and stop it sliding backwards as pressure is applied. To use it, Sudha removes the capsule cap and squeezes the handles.
Sudha can now squeeze the eye drops with perfect control.
