About this project

The problem we solve:
Over 80% of patients cannot deliver a full drop of eye medication to their eye. Many cannot get medication into their eye even when delivered by a second party.. The consequence is that they devlop sworsoning Glaucome or allergies and may go Blind there are ~ 100,000, 000 prescriptionsa for eye medication written a year.
About our solution:
The iDropper spreads the eye lilds and electronically puts pressure on the eye drop botttle until one drop is released.When the drop passes through an infrred beam the pressujre is released.
Progress to date: I have developed two working prototypes . This product was the major part of a funded NIH grant awarded to Care Team Solutions and a major part of a major part of a Tech Connect Award 2014 to Care Team Solutions. The Technology is protected by US Patents 8,734,589 & 8,734.408 & 2 patents pending.

How We Help Patients

Over 80% of patients cannot get eye drops into their eye Many do not even get their prescriptions filled. Their are over 100 Million prescriptions written for eye drop medication each year. If patients with Glaucoma do not get their medication they may go blind. Patients with severe eye infections or severe allergies may also go blind or have impaired vision.

How We Help Education

Using the iDropper TM, educating patiemtgs to take eye drops will be much easier. Currently there is no way to teach most patients how to take eye drops .
