Novel Eye Drop Bottle

A system for administering medication to an eye. The system includes a siphon tube in fluid communication with a medication reservoir, a dispensing nozzle connected to the siphon tube, and a shield coupled to the dispensing nozzle for movement relative thereto between an opened position and a closed position. The siphon tube defines a longitudinal axis extending along a substantially vertical direction when the siphon tube is in an upright position. The dispensing nozzle extends at an angle offset from the longitudinal axis when the shield is in the opened position. The nozzle and the angle are so dimensioned as to facilitate accessing the eye when the siphon tube is substantially in the upright position.
