Most large (10 ml or 15 ml) traditional eye drop bottles, as well as the 5ml Combigan drop bottle. This aid cannot be used with multi-dose preservative-free bottles with a wide neck.
Will it help with aiming the bottle?
Yes, by holding the bottle over your eye. The eye piece swivels and locks in the position that works best for you, depending on your mobility.
Will it help with squeezing the bottle?
Yes. This aid has large arms which are especially helpful if you have arthritis or difficulty lifting your hand to your eye, as you only need to apply a very small amount of pressure to squeeze the bottle.
The Opticare Arthro 10 is available on prescription, so if you get free prescriptions it may be worth requesting this through your GP.
