Silgan Dispensing has launched Iridya, a next-generation, multi-dose preservative-free eye dropper. The Iridya eye dropper ensures consumers an accurate dose and an easy-to-use design, while also providing safe delivery of ophthalmic medication. Its elongated tip provides greater accuracy when dispensing drops into the eye, and its low-squeeze force and ergonomic grip on the overcap makes it easy to use, according to a company news release.
In addition, Iridya’s sealing and barrier system to contamination is compatible with liquids from low to high viscosities, allowing for the use of preservative-free formulations for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
Iridya features a familiar round squeeze bottle design, but its elongated tip, which is unique to the preservative-free marketplace, ensures greater accuracy in drop administration to the eye. Its low-actuation force and ergonomic grip on the overcap are convenient for patients to use, including seniors. When compared with competitive designs and unit-dose droppers, Iridya’s balanced system is easier to handle and provides patients with greater control when applying their drops.
Exceptional Drop Control
Iridya’s NO-JET technology ensures single doses, drop after drop, even if the bottle is squeezed hard, unlike competitive devices which stream or jet. Advanced Flow Control assures the user exceptional drop control for precise dosing, down to the drop.
