A newly granted patent (Publication Number: US11931749B2) discloses a dispenser designed for dispensing ophthalmic liquids from a reservoir. The dispenser features an exterior flange, a dispensing domed tip with a dispensing opening, an inner flange with a fin, and a conical element that blocks the flow of liquids through the dispensing opening. The design allows for the controlled dispensing of individual drops of liquid by permitting a limited amount of liquid to seep through the dispenser.

Furthermore, the dispenser includes specific dimensions for the cut-out in the bushing and the local gap in the fin to regulate the flow of liquid. The conical element, with an outer flange at its base, is configured to block the flow of liquids effectively. When the dispenser is fitted to a reservoir and positioned downward, the liquid in the reservoir pushes against the outer flange of the conical element, preventing outflow. The integration of a frustoconical design and the precise dimensions of the components ensure efficient and controlled dispensing of ophthalmic liquids, making this dispenser a valuable innovation in the field.
