The Eyegenie® is a multi-functional and versatile tool that can be used by eye care professionals in virtually every patient encounter, leading to a more enjoyable experience for both the professional and patient. The Eyegenie® uses a set of delicate wands to accurately and comfortably displace one or both lids back toward the orbit, providing clear, quick and unencumbered access to the eye. It is hygienic, easy to use, and safe because it contacts only the external skin of the eyelid. The specific professional applications of the Eyegenie® include, but are not limited to: external examination, biomicroscopy, tonometry, ophthalmoscopy, and contact lens evaluations. It can also be used by patients to simplify the application of contact lenses and eye medications. For patients who find eye care difficult using their fingers, the Eyegenie® provides a new and appealing alternative that gives them better control over their own eye care.
