Serious Eye Disease Gives Birth to Invention of Major New Eye Care Device
ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Eye-POD-Eye-Care-Kit was created by a Doctor who suffered a serious eye malady, Bells-Palsy. Inventor Dr. Courtenay created the Eye~POD™ to answer his struggles with dry eyes, a side effect of Bells-Palsy. The affliction was caused by scratching his eye with a fingernail while putting in contact lenses. The quest for easier ways to put in eye-drops lead to easier ways to put in contacts. He succeeded in blending these functions into a single device with 8 easy-to-use eye care methods (http://eyepodmagic.com), dramatically changing the ways people use Eye-Drops and Contact Lenses. It quickly relieves dry/tired eyes. The design efficiencies significantly lower the costs of eye care..
The Eye~POD™ uses a self-actuating series of Liquid Affinity Physics that easily inserts/removes contacts Finger-Free in a split-second (no risky sticking unclean fingers in eyes), + applies single eye-drops; even gives liquid eye Massages. The Eye~POD Adapter's Tunnel-of-Light aligns contact lens/single eye-drop with the pupil of the eye, ensuring placement on exact center of eye. Eliminates need to bend head backwards or use mirrors. Device never touches the eye itself. The low skill-level needed, plus never having to stick fingers on eyeballs, expands use of contacts, enabling folks who gave up on contacts to wear them again. Snap-on cover stores Adapter/liquid-capsules for a complete ready-to-use pocket portable kit.
It's the only device able to deliver one single eye-drop on the exact center of the eye without the need to bend over-a big help to those with arthritis, bad back/neck, vertigo. Eliminates costly drops wasted running down one's cheek. Many, especially the elderly, pay $50.-to-$200.+/ounce for medicated drops. It makes a 1/ounce bottle of eye-drops last up to a year, saving about 60% on eye-drops.
