Health benefits of smaller droplets
Decreased side effects
Overdosing can cause adverse side effects that range from minor annoyances such as foul taste and smudging makeup to serious systemic effects on heart health such as causing bradycardia and arrhythmias.
Improved treatment adherence
By reducing many of the top complaints arising from over-sized drops and minimizing the adverse side effects, the Nanodropper is removing multiple barriers to patient adherence. We hope to help maintain productive doctor-patient relationships and promote eye health by making consistent treatment a pragmatic long-term option for our customers.
Improved treatment efficacy
Clinical studies demonstrate that smaller eyedrops are just as safe and efficacious as traditional droplets. Studies have also shown that larger droplets irritate the eye, eliciting a tearing, blink, and drain reflex that dilutes the medicine. By abrogating this reflex, smaller droplets deliver a more efficacious treatment.
Limited preservative exposure
Eyedrop medications contain preservatives that ensure the sterility of the contents of the bottle. Reducing droplet size will minimize patient exposure to these potentially toxic preservatives.
Decreased rate of adverse events in the elderly
By improving treatment adherence through the elimination of the financial barrier to expensive prescription medication, the Nanodropper is improving numerous aspects of patient life.
