Andreas Wolter, M.D., a NY Ophthalmologist at Seeta Eye Centers with offices in Poughkeepsie, Fishkill and Carmel, New York shared information about a free iPhone app to remind glaucoma patients to take their eye drops and medications. “Helping glaucoma patients to remember to use their eye drops is an important part of glaucoma management. It is a real problem when patients don’t remember to use their glaucoma eye drops or take their other medications,” explained Dr. Wolter. “The free smartphone EyeDROPS app should help us get better patient compliance and consistency with their glaucoma medications and thus hopefully better control of the eye disease.”
The EyeDROPS app prompts users to enter information about the eye drops they are taking, including dosages and schedules. The app then alerts patients via their phones when it’s time to put in their eye drops. The app keeps a record of medication usage and informs the patient of the next scheduled dosing time. The free EyeDROPS app even allows patients to take a photo of each bottle to avoid confusion when taking more than one kind of eye drop. The EyeDROPS app is available for Android phones through Google Play and for the Apple iPhone through the App Store.
Patients who wish to learn more about the EyeDROPS app should feel free to call Seeta Eye Centers and schedule an eye examination by calling 845-454-1025 , visiting Seeta Eye Centers or facebook.com/seetaeyecenters.
