Silgan Dispensing’s Iridya™ Addresses Unmet Patient Needs in Ophthalmic Drug Delivery Market

New preservative-free multi-dose eye dropper highlighted at Pharmapack 2019

Hergenröther added, “In independent testing, we found consumers were delighted with the ease of handling and drop control of Iridya. They’ve highlighted the low-squeeze force and elongated tip as making it easier to take their medication.”

The Iridya™ eye dropper features Silgan Dispensing’s NO-JET™ technology that ensures consumers an accurate dose and an easy-to-use design experience, while also providing safe delivery of unpreserved ophthalmic medications. The eye dropper’s elongated tip provides greater accuracy than competitive preservative-free, multi-dose devices when dispensing drops into the eye, and its low-squeeze force and ergonomic grip on the overcap make it easy to use.

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 also features the following innovative design attributes:

Advanced Ergonomics

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.

Strong Microbiological Safety

Formulations are protected from contamination by an innovative system at the tip and other mechanical features within the device. Iridya’s™ barrier integrity against microbes was verified in several challenge tests conducted by an independent laboratory.

Flexible Viscosity Adjustment

Iridya’s™ Advanced Flow Control System™ easily adapts to different formulation properties, and its standard configuration is compatible for a range of low- to high-viscosity formulations.
