I’ve Never Heard of an Eye Drop Guide, Making it Easy to Administer Eye Drops with an Eye Drop Guide

 I've Never Heard Of An Eye Drop Guide , Making It Easy With An Eye Drop Guide, Make It Easy…Use A Guide It was an ordinary call with the technician placing an order for optical supplies for her office. However, with one of the products, after she gave me the number, she commented that she had never heard of such a thing. I chuckled as I thought back to the first time I saw an eye-drop guide, a useful product that has been around for a long time.

Growing up, my family had a glass eye wash cup. It was clear and looked like a small teacup on av pedestal. My dad would use it when his eyes were prickly from an afternoon of farming or cutting grass. He’d fill it with liquid, tilt the cup to his eye and then open his eye so the fluid would swish around and flush out the debris. He used it frequently, and the cup sat on the bathroom counter for many years.

As it turns out, glass eye wash cups came in various designs and colors. Cobalt blue, yellow-green, white-milk and ruby were just some of the colors you could purchase. Some are embossed and rather elaborate. Most of these cups stand between 1 3/4″ to 2 1/2″ tall, and are now considered antique. You can find lots of glass varieties online for purchase.

The Eye Drop Guide we sell at Amcon is like most things today, made of plastic, but it is able to perform two different functions. It enables the user, who has trouble getting drops actually inside the eye, an easier way to insert drops. If you’re like me, I tend to blink as I see the drop coming and most of it lands on my cheek or nose. With the guide, it provides a dark environment so your eye doesn’t see the drop coming. You put the tip of your dropper bottle through the hole of the guide and then place the guide over your eye. The device’s second purpose, is to convert the guide into an eyewash cup. There is a plug at the bottom of the cup that makes it leak proof so you can use it for eye wash needs.

Eye wash cups may not be glass today, but they are still around. If you have trouble putting drops in, Amcon provides an easy solution.



  1. Eye diseases can be prevented through food supplements and also making sure that your eye gets a good rest after eye intensive tasks like working on a computer for long periods of time. *;,.:
