TESTIMONIALS

We have been told by so many customers that the Own Eye Magnifier has given them freedom and confidence to once again travel. Some had stopped travelling fearing that their ingrown eyelashes would need attention while away SO rather than risk  NOT finding someone they could trust to remove their eyelashes they stopped travelling. How sad is this? But the Own Eye Magnifier offers a simple  "do it yourself" solution making it possible to remove your own ingrown eyelashes no matter where you are or when they need attention!  It doesn't need electricity. At last you CAN be in control of your ingrown eyelashes!

Latest testimonial 

2nd April 2017

For years I had been using a small magnifying glass with a mirror to help find and remove lashes.
What a difference the Own Eye Magnifier has been. This morning I woke up and used the magnifying glass to remove an eyelash that was in my eye lid but after it was still irritated. I lit up the Own Eye and could clearly see a transparent fibre that was stuck in the same eye. I could never have seen this with my earlier method.
Also, as advertised, the Own Eye Magnifier has been indispensable to removing ingrown eyelashes. Especially now as I am getting older some lashes are coming in white and are impossible to find and remove without the Own Eye.

If I had to pack 10 belongings and let go of everything else- the Own Eye Magnifier would be in my top 10. The relief it has given me makes it my most irreplaceable purchase ever. Many people boast and few things deliver but your device has surpassed completely exceeded my expectations.
When I would go days and weeks with an ingrown eyelash I kept thinking I was tired because my eye wanted to stay shut to stop the pain. Now I do regular checks and can see and remove the lash before it starts rubbing into my eye and causing irritation.

(One suggestion - I have found the beveled tweezers more helpful to remove lashes when approaching the eye from the side.)
Thanks again for putting this together and please feel free to add this to your list of testimonials.
THANK YOU!!!!!
Colin

Dear Margaret,
I found your product by Googling trichiasis. I have blepharitis and am plagued with ingrown eyelashes on a regular basis. I have tried to remove them myself, but find it very awkward and often impossible. I have tried various setups with magnifying mirrors and lights, but none of them have been satisfactory. I usually end up going to the doctor to have the eyelashes removed, but believe that I could remove them myself if I could see them clearly. To tell you the truth, I balked at the price of your product, but it looks like it will work well. I am tired of living with the discomfort of eyelashes rubbing on my eyeballs while I wait for an appointment with my doctor, so I bit the bullet and placed my order. I am currently experiencing an episode and would love to be able to pull out your device and deal with the problem, so I appreciate hearing from you and am anxious to hear that the solution to my problem is on its way. I deal with this issue on an ongoing basis and am hopeful that, with the Own Eye Magnifier, my problem will be solved. A.G 

Note from Roy and Margaret :
We explained that the Own Eye Magnifier is a fine OPTICAL quality instrument  that is totally hand made so is not expensive for what it is.

However as you can see from the following email...it was CERTAINLY worth every dollar in our customer's own words. If you save just three trips to an Ophthalmologist ( based on prices charged years ago) it will indeed pay for the Magnifier.


and then the next email...
I’m writing to let you know that my Own Eye Magnifier has arrived and it is brilliant! I was able to deal with my ingrown eyelashes very easily, using the device. I’m delighted. No more waiting, I can to deal with ingrown eyelashes as they occur. I can’t tell you what a relief it is! Then again, from what you’ve said, I imagine you understand perfectly. Thank you. And please thank Roy for me.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for your suggestions for the care of blepharitis and ingrown eyelashes. I also deal with dry eye. I, too, use SteriLid and TheraTears and find them both very helpful. I appreciate your offer to help.
I’m thrilled with my Own Eye Magnifier. I would be happy to have you use my words, with my initials, on your website. I will also tell my opthalmologist about the Magnifier. I have also had some pretty bizarre suggestions from doctors. Using the Magnifier is a much simpler and more convenient solution to the problem. Thank you again.
Sincerely, A. G. from Vermont

NB Note from Margaret, regarding following testimonial. Bill bought one of our original Own Eye Magnifiers back in 2007. As you can see from his email which is almost all here, he has had lots of issues which sound horrendous. 

Hey Margaret,

Being a long time expert at pulling eye lashes (both eyes, top and bottom eye lashes) and an 

engineer - I kind of consider myself as an expert user. LOL.

Plus, I have been looking for something better after I had a detached retina go horribly wrong in my right eye. It was a complete blow out couple with a full blown case of panuvitis (where my immune system attacks both bad cells and good cells. Ended up going through 5 surgeries (two which the doc said that I lost my eye) that resulted in having an oil implant to hold my retina in place and permanent optic nerve damage (which is like watching a TV that has areas of missing pixels). But somehow I got lucky and today my vision is 20/30 although it takes awhile for the images to be translated to what I'm looking at, my depth perception is kind of goofy, and glare kills me since the panuvitis literally ate up my lens. 

So what used to be easy in pulling lashes becomes somewhat of a guessing game with my right eye. The old model is still the very best of anything I ever saw or had, but the right eye was still guess work. 

So I'm anxious to use and evaluate the new model. It will take getting used to. 

But here's what I noticed so far:

* The optics on the new one are great, definitely better than the old model. ( we improved the lens even further since 2007)  The key to being able to remove lashes is the lighting.

PS  Roy sent Bill a Dominant Eye Shield which is a later development not in the earlier model. We are sure he will see the benefit as it blocks out the dominant eye.

Bill,said because my right eye is damaged, there is an internal fight between my right and left eye on which is the dominate eye. 

The tweezers are so important to removing the lashes. The most critical thing a tweezers has to do is be able to grip the eye lash and hold onto it as the eye lash is removed. The hard part is the eye lashes have bulbs so they have to be able to hold onto the lash when extra force is needed to get the bulb to pop out. 

PS Bill sent a photo  of lots of tweezers he'd tried. Original tweezers we sold are not easily available now, plus expensive when we can find them.  With all the fancy and expensive tweezers I have, the original tweezers you sent me is still the best tweezers I have ever used. I love the angle even though it is pointed, but the gripping capacity of them is far superior to any others. The fancy German tweezers tend to cut through the lash, leaving a broken lash that feels like barbed wire touching you eye. 

Anyway,thanks for the technical discussions of these great mirrors. Tonight I'm trying the new mirror with the old tweezers. 

Still the best invention I have ever seen or used. 

Thanks Bill, from Texas.

Hi Margaret,

just to let you know that I have received the Own Eye Magnifier. I must admit I to couldn't live without this now, it has been and absolute life saver to me. I have only had problems with my eye lashes for a couple of years, but I found this problem extremely stressful and debilitating. I had to go to the optometrist every couple of weeks to get my ingrown eyelashes removed, and I was worried that the ingrown eyelashes rubbing on my eye, even if only for a short time would eventually damage my eyes.
I must admit I take it with me when I travel and as you know I have bought another one for myself in case something happens to the first one (gets lost/broken etc), so that I always have a spare one.
I can't thank your husband enough for having invented such a marvellous thing that's helps so many people world wide.
With thanks to both of you
Regards
Victoria

Hi Margaret

Hi Roy and Margaret,

I received my Own Eye Magnifier and have put it to good use. I was able to adjust very quickly and was amazed at the sharpness when viewing my own eye. I have already been able to remove a troublesome eyelash and I must say quiet easily.
The other day I thought I had another ingrown eyelash, but after looking a number of times I could not see any ingrown eyelashes even though the discomfort continued. So I pulled my eyelid down and there was an eyelash actually in my eye which I was able to remove with a cotton bud.


We are travelling overseas later in the year and your product has given me full confidence in travelling knowing I can remove my own ingrown lashes.
So anyone I come across that has the same condition I will certainly be telling them of your product.

Regards,
Denis H.

..........................................................................................................................................................

Hi Margaret.
Thank you!!!
I have removed 3 lashes just now and only received my ‘kit’ this morning.  **I have to say that it took me a while to “find” my eye! But once I had, I had 3 lashes out in no time at all. 
I am so glad I found this piece of kit on the web. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Thank you to you for taking an interest and to Roy for designing and making it – worth every penny!
Kind regards to you both.
I am the one going off to Switzerland on Friday so very happy now to be out in the mountains for 3 days knowing I won’t have to put up with stabbing eyelashes. Can’t believe how easy it is to use.
Thanks a lot for your wonderful device and for taking an interest in my blepharitis!
Jill B

 

 Note from Margaret, when Jill looked into the Mirror lens she was not close enough at first  but soon realised and moved closer.

Hi, Margaret -

 

I've had a chance to set up the OEM and take a look; what an eye-opener (pun intended)! The magnification is terrific, and I can see for myself the extent of my chronic blepharitis.

All lashes very visible. At the moment, no trichiasis, but I'll be monitoring it regularly.

 

Thank you again; money well spent!

 

Best wishes,
Lynn

Subject: magnifier 12 Months use


Hi Roy & Margaret.
To let you know how OEM is going. I have used at least every other day
with such success that I not found it necessary to visit my eye
specialist & I guess I'm removing 6 to 8 lashes a month.
I have recommended to  several people & I understand one lady has
ordered for delivery via a contact. I am very grateful to you both for
this truly unique unit.
Thank you both very much, Martin  ( Cape Town )

Received 30th Sept 2015 originally purchased in 2007. 

Dear Roy and Margaret,

It has now been 8 years since I purchased the Own Eye Magnifier from you, after seeing it reviewed on the ABC inventors show all those years ago. I use it every few days to remove ingrown eyelashes, caused by blepharitis, old broken off eyelashes, as well as other debri that may get stuck in my eye or lashes from time to time. I take it with me when travelling, even when going into hospital for procedures. I would be lost without it. I just feel so lucky that I watched that inventors show on TV that brought it to my attention so long ago. 

No more trips to the optician to remove lashes it has saved me hundreds and hundreds of dollars, not to mention the time I've also saved. But most importantly, my quality of life has improved and I have a feeling of security and independence knowing that it is just there in my cupboard or in my bag whenever I need it.

I have purchased a few different mirrors in my time but none of them come close to what you have invented here. This truly is an Own Eye Magnifier. You don't need anyone's help to use it. I almost feeling like purchasing a backup mirror just in case I lose this one and for some crazy reason you stopped making them, as I don't ever want to go back to life without the Own Eye Magnifier.

Thank you. You have improved my life.

 Yours Sincerely, Mitchell West  from  Australia

Dear Margaret,

I have been to doctors over the past several years looking for a solution to this eyelash problem. They plucked. I plucked to the extent with my makeup mirror with 10x magnification would allow me to find them. 
I have undergone laser removal of the eyelashes which is an astounding $500 a session. I now have no eyelashes in a certain spot but still have the problem.  
The last time I went in I heard the doctor and nurse discussing how often I had been in. I was so embarrassed that I determined to just tough it out and offer up the pain and aggravation for past sins. Lol...  In the old days they wore hair shirts for penance but I have a hair eye.
I started looking on internet and found your product.  I am very pleased. 
I plan to take your product to my doctor.  He should recommend it if he has any other patients with this condition. 

 Sincerely, T Griffin USA

.............................................................................................................

My wife suffers from Trichiasis and has tried many mirrors to assist her in pulling out the ingrown lashes with little success. She has been to the doctor many times to address the issue. She tried your product for the first time today and said it is 100 times better than anything see tried previously. She still has to get use to the process of using your product and that will come with time. 

She is very pleased with the first attempt today. Use any of my words on your website as a testimonial for your product and the excellent customer service you provide.

Thank you and your husband for having a product that helps people with the curse of Trichiasis. 

 From  Mr S. Griffin USA

This one made Roy and I smile from ear to ear! We are so happy when others see the value and merit of our Own Eye Magnifier. We are SO thrilled when it helps anyone to be in control of their ingrown eyelashes!

Hello Margaret,

I received my Own Eye Magnifier today. It is AMAZING!! I am so thankful that your husband made this for you and all the rest of us ingrown eyelash sufferers. I have been aimlessly pulling out whatever eyelashes I can manage to see with my glasses on and a makeup mirror for the past several years. One night I thought surely there has to be a better mirror for this problem. I looked everywhere locally meaning the United States and couldn't find anything. Finally I googled 'magnifier for ingrown eyelashes' and there it was, the Own Eye Magnifier, clear over in Australia. I have never gone to an eye doctor to have my lashes pulled, but with aging eyesight I knew the time was nearing when I would not be able to do what I had been doing and I do not have the money to go to the doctors every couple of months.

So, anyways, it arrived today and IT IS AMAZING! I was so excited I took it right out of the box and I just spent 20 minutes pulling so many lashes that I had been unable to even see, let alone get the tweezers on. You are right, this was surely a wonderful gift your husband gave you. I am so thankful that he made it available to the rest of us. JUST WONDERFUL!!!

Thank you for your follow up and kindness and of course, thank your husband for his amazing invention!   ~Tina

I forgot to mention how thankful I was to find the extras that came with the magnifier that I didn't see mentioned when I bought it. The tweezers, cleaning cloth and extra batteries are another blessing indeed!.  Regards,Tina

 Peter Marks after his procedure.

Folks. I found you by searching on Google.

I only have sight in my left eye (construction accident in 1959).  I needed cataract surgery 2 yrs. ago and got a viral infection through this, Ocular Herpes or Shingle Virus.

Took 2 yrs. to cure this, went to best Corneal specialist in Canada.

He tried everything. Twice, with laser, then was going to do a PTK.

When they were preparing for this they discovered that the virus had twisted the edge of my upper eye lid. As eyelashes grew they were pointing into my cornea and scratching it, which caused my poor vision.

Was sent to an Ocular plastic surgeon who electrolysed the offending follicles and removed the eyelashes that were doing this.

This doc left me looking as above, but all healed now. Does not seem as if he missed any eyelashes but he wants my optician to keep a close watch.

My sight is improving very well, hopefully your mirror will allow me to keep watch myself and catch any growth early, the surgeon says he got them all.

But that remains to be proved.  The surgeon had put freezing substance in my eye and injected novocaine into my eyelid, the procedure was pain free.

But within 2 hours I looked as above, not much pain but looked lousy for a week.

Use the picture and story as you wish or do a delete.

All The Best,    Pete.

Peter Marks 

Footnote: Peter  (81) has indeed found the Own Eye Magnifier helpful with managing his eyelashes himself, even though he only has vision in one eye!

Hi Margaret,

For some 20 years I have had to go to an ophthalmologist every 6-8 weeks to have ingrown eyelashes in one eye pulled out.  It is often not successful and I have to return…in all events it’s a pain to make an appointment and travel.  I once tried to have them surgically removed, but it didn’t work.  

 

We spend summers in a remote area of Canada and professional help is unavailable. I’ve started trying to pull them myself, but even with my wife’s makeup mirror it’s a “hit and miss” affair. I’m told that my lashes are thin and almost transparent, so I have to just guess where they are.  As you know, an irritated eye is like a toothache.  I’m hoping that the Own Eye Magnifier will help me.

 

   Two weeks later….

The Magnifier arrived last evening. I haven’t done “surgery” yet but did look at my eye with it.  

Absolutely incredible!  I was trying to use my wife’s fairly new and good make-up mirror, but there is simply no comparison. I told her that with this she could apply mascara one lash at a time :-)  I’ll report in when I need to pull errant lashes.  Thanks so much. You guys are great!  Thanks for coming up with this when no one else had.  

 

I also tried having my errant eyelashes zapped.  It was painful, gave me a black eye and did absolutely no good.  I’m fortunate in that my troublesome ones only grow our every 6 to 8 weeks (like a haircut!).  I have gone to ophthalmologists for year to have them pulled but every time I have to go to a new one it takes at least a couple of trips before they get the right ones.  It is expensive and time consuming.  And we have always had to plan our summer travels around the “eyelash problem.”  Last summer in Canada, without access to assistance, I finally went after them myself, but it was really hit and miss (not to mention dangerous).  I probably pulled 3 or 4 good ones for every troublemaker eyelash. This Magnifier should change our lives.  

 

Thanks again.  Jim From Bonita Springs, Florida . USA

Hello Margaret,

Can you tell your husband how grateful I am that he invented the own eye magnifier. 

It took a few weeks for another troublesome eyelash to grow but grow it did and what a  nuisance it was.  But this time, I had my handy dandy own eye magnifier to rely upon.  I couldn't wait to give it a try.   I found the lash, (not where I thought it would be) and plucked it out on the first try (thanks to your excellent advice, Margaret).  I am grinning from ear to ear because IT WORKED!  Now I am in control. 


* No longer will  I have to wait out the weekend to see an optometrist. 

* No longer do I have to wait it out so the lash grows long enough for the optometrist to see it. 

*No longer will I have to pay to have someone pluck out eyelashes for me.  It's a real blessing. 

Thanks so much for everything including the advice.  It shows you care about your customers and your product. 
Good work!

Forever grateful,

J.  L. Fredericton, NB Canada

Hi Margaret,

I want to wish you and your husband a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2015. 

I was thinking about you a few moments ago when I used Roy's fabulous device to pull out a couple of painful lashes.  What a relief not to suffer on a holiday!  

My husband has said that buying the Magnifier is the best money we've spent.  In fact, I live in fear that I will break it or misplace the tweezers (haven't seen any as useful as these). 

  Please give my best regards to your husband and thank him again for his ingenuity.

  It took an Aussie to think of such a great invention!


Best wishes,

D. Mc C of Rome, GA.  USA

 ( From Margaret....Actually Roy was born in London UK but became an Australian Citizen in 1980 so he has a paper to prove he is an Aussie. I too was born in UK but I've been here since I was two years old...just a little while ago now...haha)

Hi Margaret

I have just received my Magnifier, (very quick postage).   LOVE IT!!!  I had just pulled out eyelashes this morning before it arrived.   I set it up - 1 minute later - found 3 more eyelashes!!!   It is amazing how clear it is. 

I can see this will be my new best friend and will travel everywhere with me. 

It is so easy to use.  I thought I'd still have to be in a light room but I was in the lounge room in the dark and crystal clear.  I thought I was in the minority of people with ingrown eyelashes - but it is a much bigger problem than I imagined.  I play golf and many times I head off to golf with eyelashes I couldn’t find and my eyes would be red raw by the time I finished.  I would even go to sleep pulling down my bottom lid so they wouldn't stick in!   This is amazing and I am thankful that you had ingrown eyelashes so Roy could come up with this great invention!!!
Thank you again
Kind regards

Kaylene from  Qld

Hi Margaret,


The OEM is just what I have been looking for over the last few 
years, within half an hour I was able to remove four lashes from my right 
eye that left for another 2 weeks would have meant a visit to the eye 
specialist. Fortunately being a precision engineer I have a steady hand 
but find my left eye is more difficult, so will practice to find which 
method suits me. I will check weekly before the lashes enter my eyes. 
I am really very pleased with the magnifier & certainly will recommend 
it to anyone suffering with our complaint. Thank you both for this 
amazing little instrument & for the trouble taken to get it to me.
Kind Regards,  Martin

From South Africa …

Martin even phoned  from South Africa to congratulate us on such a wonderful and well made product. 

....................................................................................................................................

HI

This is to let you know that the own eye arrived today and I was delighted with it.

I have used and was more than pleased with it. I have suffered with ingrowing

eyelashes for years and at last I have found something that is really excellent.

 

Thank you so much and good luck.

Hi Margaret,

I had an appointment booked to have electrolysis to my ingrowing 
eyelashes and the ophthalmologist cancelled the procedure because there 
were none actually sticking into my eye at the time. Several days later 
- at the weekend (!) I noticed the inevitable scratchy eye - and could 
actually see one offending lash being swept across my eyeball every time 
I blinked!  I had previously had some removed by both optometrist and 
ophthalmologist so I knew that it had to be removed - but how exactly?? In 
desperation, I managed to eventually grab it with some splinter forceps 
(NOT a good idea!) with my glasses on and head at a very odd angle and 
pulled it out from behind my glasses!  I then went searching online for 
a better method, found the own Eye Magnifier Mirror and bought it. When 
it arrived about 4 days later - I had it opened and setup within 10 
minutes and discovered and pulled 3 more offending lashes - without my 
glasses on and being able to see them incredibly clearly! 

I am so pleased that I won't be forever waiting for appointment times or being 
dependent on other people to do this for me in the future!
Thanks you very much!!

Hi Margaret,

I am told (by my Wife) that the own eye magnifier is the best gift she has ever had , has given us joy and it even comes on holidays with us..it is like our third child!.

 

It is still going well, we just want the spares in case they are needed in the future as she can't be without it for more than a few days.

 

Regards PK and DK Miranda NSW

Hi Margaret,

"My lash problem began two to three years ago and I have them in both eyes.  My ophthalmologist says I have "healthy lashes" because the ingrown ones usually return in three weeks or so.  You can understand my frustration -- I have to have them removed over and over, inconvenient for me and frustrating for my doctor.  

Electrolysis has been recommended to remove the lashes permanently, but it is a long process, as you probably know, and must be repeated if the first try is unsuccessful.  I would rather avoid having it, because it may entail making a four-hour roundtrip to a specialist in another city.

 

 After receiving my Own Eye Magnifier I felt a particularly uncomfortable lash the day before yesterday, got out your fabulous invention and pulled it out!  All by myself! 


I was so proud of myself but the credit is due to that wonderful piece of equipment your husband designed...

Please tell your husband I am so impressed with his ingenuity, and for all he's done for the rest of us sufferers."

The kit looks impressive and we received four lights - I was only expecting two.  Thank you for exceeding my expectations!  I have had ingrown lashes on both top and bottom lids, so having both lights will help me see to tweeze them out.

Regards,

"DM from Georgia."

Dear Roy & Margaret

 I just wanted to thank you for helping us with the magnifier – for coming down to Connells Point to help my husband learn how to use it and  also for the benefit that he has derived from it.  It is the only thing that has helped with his ingrown eyelashes, which have given him so much trouble and even after two surgical procedures, he had had no relief.

Thank you again and kind regards

Cathy & Fred  Connells Point  NSW.

 ......................................................................................................

 

I found the Own Eye Magnifier on the internet after my ophthalmologist suggested I take out my own ingrowing eyelashes.  It has literally changed my life as I seemed to spend my time wondering when these horrid prickly eyelashes would affect me and then rush to the optometrist to have them taken out.  Now I can do it myself!  One of the side advantages has been the ability, through the Magnifier, of keeping my eyelids clean which helps the blepharitis

 

I have just had my cataracts done and am now seeing a new bright new world.  Must say it was not a pleasant experience but not painful.

 

Lovely weather here in London!

 

With my best regards,
Patricia

Hi Roy and Margaret,

The only word for your magnifier is ENLIGHTENING in every sense of the word.

Thank you so much for coming up with this brilliant device. And thank you for suggesting the Lid Care cleansing pads. What a difference the combination makes!  ( I recommended SteriLid by TheraTears Lid cleanser foam which I use myself and find just brilliant.  from Margaret)

I thought I was doing an okay job keeping my lashes and lids clean but now I know the true story AND I get to see those pesky lashes poking into my eyes.

Thank you again and keep up the great work!

BTW you and Roy should have seen me when I first turned on the lamps and saw what was going on in the mirror. The jaw dropped and the eyes opened wide! My husband heard me saying WOW and came to see what was going on and laughed when I told him. You have to be a sufferer to properly appreciate the difference Roy's invention makes.

Hi Margaret & Roy,

Just keeping in touch, I purchased an Own Eye Magnifier years ago. What a Godsend you have been to many of us.  I can't imagine life without your God-inspired, marvellous invention!!!!  Thank you many, many times over.

Blessings to you both,

Dear Roy and Margaret

 

This is an unsolicited testimonial and I would just like to say how delighted I am with my Own Eye Magnifier, it is simple to use and I have already paid for itself after a few months !!!

 

Best regards, Ian  from Thailand

Hello Margaret and Roy -

Just used my Own Eye Magnifier to remove a six or seven offenders.  Thank you so much for conceiving and marketing this device!
It is so much easier to pull out the bad ones which point right into the iris.  Before I was either going to an OD, or using a flashlight to locate errant lashes, but never could really see how many of them there were.   They are transparent, and I could only see the very long ones.
   I can't thank you enough.  Everything one needs is included and the case is perfect.  Explanations are very good and all my questions were answered and problems solved.  Good luck with your product and thank you again. 

 

 Cheers.  Marilyn G. from Maryland, USA

 Hi

I received the product.  Thank you -- it is unbelievable the level of detail I can see of my eyelashes.  I have expertly plucked out the offending eyelashes. It's amazing that one can even see into the iris, fascinating.

Thanks again for the wonderful product,

 

Much thanks, Best,

Hi Roy,

I love the own eye magnifier mirror!  It has saved me so much time and money, especially while travelling, when I can pull out my pesky eyelashes on my own!

Thanks for your wonderful invention!

Cheers,

Hi Margaret

Many thanks for sending the eye magnifier. It arrived in good condition. I have used it and cannot believe how many lashes I could see and remove. I have a double row of eye lashes due to a condition I have. The lashes are blonde and it has been getting progressively harder for me to see them.

My optometrist  recommended the eye magnifier as he has had the task of removing my lashes. I can now do it myself and save time. As well I will be able to attend to them more often before the lashes get long and scratch my eyes.

 I have spent today, the first in a long, long time, not having itchy sore eyes. I cannot remember the last time they felt this good. I believe I got more lashes out than the Optician, judging on how good they feel.

Thank you

Regards Ann  (Qld)

Hi Margaret

Just to let you know that the parcel arrived safely this morning.  I was amazed at how clearly I could see my own eyes as I have never seen them before.  The big shock was that I have discovered wrinkles I never knew I had!  At least not to that degree!  Will definitely take more care in the sun now.  Also it revealed the necessity to cleanse my eyelids properly.  The magnifier will be invaluable for checking this task.

  Also it is amazing that even the tiniest white lashes are seen so well.  I will be able to identify any new ingrown eyelashes easily as soon as they become troublesome.  The Magnifier so far exceeds all expectations!

recently had electrolysis to remove a few lashes at the eye clinic.   I am told that there is something like a 50% success rate only and my eye feels irritated even 2 weeks later.  Therefore it may well be preferable to remove them myself as the need arises.

With many thanks

Best wishes, Marjorie

Hi Margaret,

Good news – the Own Eye Magnifier has arrived!!!   I immediately opened the package and attended to my left eye, which has waited impatiently for its arrival!   I was able to remove an ingrown eyelash and also a curled, dark, apparent eyelash (?) from the white of the eye.   I am still learning to align the lighting, but I guess I will pick that up as time goes by.   I am amazed at how close up you can get to the eye!   So, as you can see, it is an asset to me and will be frequently used in the future. 

Kind regards, Kevin from Camberwell Vic.

Dear Margaret 

Last week I had another frustrating visit to yet another Eye Specialist who pulled out a lash - NOT the right one - and charged me over $90 ( plus a 180 Km round trip to get to him) all for nothing!!

 

I have all my life been troubled by one - only one - ingrown eyelash which scrapes and irritates my eye, my husband has been plucking it out for nearly 45 years but his eyes are no longer strong enough to see it, even with his little jeweller's eyepiece, the lash is now fine and clear, but it still hurts like the devil!

 

However, this specialist told me that he had seen your husband on The Inventors some time back. So when we got home, my husband sent an email to the ABC, who replied with a link to the program which had a link to your website!

Can't wait to get your little gizmo !  from  Maureen T   

. ………………….                                         

Dear Margaret & Roy
 Today I pulled out my delinquent eyelash - by myself - for the first time in nearly 40 years !

    Had to wait for all this time for the darn thing to grow long enough to see and get a grip on - after a couple of abortive attempts when I snapped it off, I finally succeeded today and bingo first pop !!

    So, another delighted customer, and in another 8 or 9 weeks I guess I'll be delighted all over again!

Cheers!  Maureen T

               ANNOUNCEMENT!


Leading USA Eye Specialists Dr Randall Thomas and Dr Ron Melton endorse & recommend Own Eye Magnifier Mirror for all eye care. They approached us to ask could they promote the Own Eye Magnifier for absolutely NO financial gain to themselves as they believe it is such a great product. 


 Here is what they have to say, quote:

"This device could be a God-send for thousands of afflicted patients.
One of my patients has terrible Stevens-Johnson syndrome.  He is blind in his left eye, and is periodically tormented by chronic, recurrent trichiasis in his right eye.
 I have been seeing him every 4 to 6 weeks for over 10 years to epilate his troublesome lashes.  It had been about 4 months since I last saw him, and I asked him what he had done to help with his lashes.  He smiled, and told me he had done some research on the Internet and found this cool magnifying mirror out of Australia, purchased one, and he has been able (for the most part) to epliate his own lashes with great precision and satisfaction.  There are still a few tiny ones that force him in to see me episodically. 
There are numerous other uses for this device, especially for the far-sighted.
I am now using it to show my patients "things" on their eye; cysts, ingrown hairs, their blepharitis, prominent corneal blood vessels, lesions on their iris, etc., etc.
Yet another use of this ingenious device is to enable patients to monitor their eyelid margins.  Explanation:  Many patients have a chronic eyelid disease known as blepharitis. 
 For patients to be able to examine their eyelid margins (the area of the eyelid where the eyelashes insert), would be very helpful.  So, there is another excellent use!
**Randall says, the views of my own eye look very much like what I view through my $16,000.00 slit lamp each and every day!  WOW, what a view.
So, this device should be in every optometrists and ophthalmologists office for them to use to demonstrate eye findings to their patients!!!!!!!!  
It is a superb teaching and demonstration adjunct.


(We are very well-known optometric educators here in the U.SWe team - teach about 25 to 30 lecture programs each year, and have done so for the past 25 years.)

Quote:
I have found your Own Eye device to be very helpful to me in my clinical practice.  More and more, I am using the mirror to show patients a particular spot, lesion, wild hair, foreign body on the cornea, etc., etc on their "own eye" and the patients really enjoy seeing what it is I am talking about. 
Every eye doctor should have one of these in each exam room for such demonstration purposes!!
 
Continued best wishes.
Randall and (Ron)

Dear Roy,

You demonstrated the Own Eye Magnifier to us at the Leagues Club, Anne made what has proved to be the best decision in her life (after marrying me of course) and purchased the Magnifier. With patience and some practice she has become MOST adept at removing the dreaded ingrowing eyelashes and now whips them out in the blink of an eye (pardon the pun). It has saved her no end of angst and it is such a pleasure to see her so unconcerned about what was a MAJOR problem for her.

Once more thank you for your Own Eye Magnifier...it is a WONDERFUL device, you have our total thanks and admiration for your skill and ingenuity in producing it!

Regards, Bill and Anne  from Central Coast NSW.

Hello Margaret, 

The magnifier arrived today. I am most impressed, it is so good!
 My problem is ingrown eyelashes, I am so pleased to find a solution that  allows me to cope with the problem myself.
 
It is an amazing eye image.
 
Please thank your husband for his inventing skill.
many thanks

Hi Margaret,

I just wanted to let you know in a quick note that Raquel is thrilled with her magnifier!  She uses it all the time and so far has found so many lashes she couldn't see before.  We are so pleased with the quality and functionality of your product.  It took her a little time to get adjusted to the stronger magnification, but she is using it like a pro now.  Also, the product was perfectly and carefully packaged and we received it in great time!
Thank you so much for a great product, and thank Roy for his wonderful invention!

You are also providing a very important service to the world.  Your product has been a saving grace for us.  Also,Raquel loves the tweezers.  We don't have anything even close to the quality and function of them here in Brazil.

I agree with you that the new lens is better and more powerful than the older version. I can even see the corners of the eye with ease. Bravo for the new version. Bless you for coming up with such an ingenious invention. It is such a useful thing to have in the home and office.

 

Your new website is great too. Keep up the good work.
Best wishes from Dr Mary Choo, Malaysia.
PS. Mary bought two, one for the office as well as one for at home.

Hi Margaret and Roy,


Last year I was introduced to the Own Eye Magnifier by a family member who had tried it. I have suffered from the painful scratching of ingrown eyelashes for most of my life. I have been to Ophthalmologists for electrolysis which was painful, caused bruising and often required days of waiting for an appointment.

It was still not a permanent solution as more lashes grew.

Being able to manage the problem myself, right when it arises and wherever I happen to be, is just revolutionary.

After purchasing my own Eye Magnifier, I have found the powerful magnification and direct lighting of the mirror just fabulous for locating those tiny, irritating little eyelashes that had eluded me in the past. The tweezers supplied with the mirror have a sure grip and allow me to quickly remove the errant lashes. The portability of the mirror in it's little travel case, allows me to never be away from immediate relief wherever I happen to be! 
Thanks, Roy, for developing this highly functional device.

You have substantially improved the quality of my life.

Sincerely, Michele Petrie. NSW.  

.......................................................................................................................................................

 

Hi Roy and Margaret,

This magnifier is absolutely fabulous!  If you have eyelashes that grow inwards and scratch your eyeball then this magnifier is a must.
I now don't have to continually go to the optometrist and sit in his waiting room just to get a few eyelashes pulled out...I can do it myself from the comfort of home.  If you go away, you don't have to continually look for an optometrist when you get to a town and if you travel outback Australia you can't go unless you have one of these magnifiers. 

I'm so grateful that I found these lovely helpful people with a terrific invention!

Melinda Watson from Qld.

Dear Margaret & Roy,

Freedom at last, no more having to make appointments and travel to my optician to have those awful, irritating and painful ingrown eyelashes removed, I can easily remove them myself using my wonderful Own Eye Magnifier and Eyelash Tweezers.  This is truly a great product and will prove very helpful to people all over the world who suffer from ingrown eyelashes.

I wish you every success.  I am very thankful to you.

Margaret and Roy, 

 

Hello!  Yes, it was me that told Dr. Randall Thomas (top USA Eye Disease Specialist) about your Own Eye Magnifier.  I purchased one from you a couple of years ago and have been extremely pleased with it.  During a recent visit to his office he commented on the fact that I had not been coming to see him nearly as often as I had in the past.  I told him that was because of the Own Eye Magnifier (the primary purpose of my visits being ingrown eyelashes).  He was curious, so I gave him some details about the product and your website address.  Apparently he really liked what he saw!

Thank you for producing such a great product.

Take care,

Chuck Borders from North Carolina, USA

 Hi Margaret

The Own Eye magnifier has transformed my life, does take some getting used to but worth being patient. I am going to take mine to my optician when I go for my check in August to show him.

Kind Regards , Diana Turner from Essex, England.

…………………….

Hi Margaret

 

Magnifier all put together, I think it is truly wonderful -sure if more people know about it over here it would sell like' hot cakes' the tweezers are very good too.

I have blepharatis and ingrowing eyelashes - I need to remove the eyelashes fairly regularly and hopefully this would stop me keep having to go to the opticians so often. 

 

Kind regards, Diana from  Essex

Hi Margaret

 

It is such a joy to find people/ a company that takes eye problems seriously, someone who knows what it's like to walk around all day with an eye that is driving you mad - like a toothache in the eye!

The story about having your eyelashes removed is priceless!!  I bet if the specialist was a sufferer himself his advice would be different!

 

Kind Regards , Diana from Essex

 

**Note from Margaret re the "priceless story".

  Many years ago at the Sydney Eye Hospital it was suggested that I have all my eyelashes removed. (as I was about 35 at the time....you can imagine my horror!!)

I asked “Don’t they just grow back?”…answer was “Yes, BUT they do take a while”.

..........................................................................................................................................................

·       Hello Margaret & Roy

 

I am happy to tell you that I have learned how to use the eye magnifier. I can now see both eyes and detect the errant eye lashes.

 Roy thanks to you for this great invention. I am very grateful to both of you for enabling me to see my eyes in such great detail, this was not possible before.

 

Best wishes from  Dr. Choo , Malaysia.

      Stephen’s story. 

Hi Margaret

 

Following nerve damage in my right eye due to life-saving brain surgery in 1983, I have little feeling in my eyeball.  One of the side effects of the surgery is damage to the 7th nerve, which in turn, causes ingrown eye lashes.  As the lashes grow inwards, they damage the surface of the eyeball.  As I have little, or no, feeling in the eyeball, the damage becomes quite severe before I’m aware of what’s happened.  As I get older, the problem happens faster.

The 7th nerve, as they call it, is one of the facial nerves that leaves the brain just behind the ear.  They had to cut this, and several others, when removing the brain tumour. 

I still have fairly good vision in that eye.

As my sensory nerves are poor in the eye, it’s not until the ingrown eyelash has started to cause serious trouble that I am aware of a pricking feeling in the eye.  I have to see my GP for a referral to the eye clinic, and that appointment takes 3 months to get.  By that time, I’m almost wishing they would remove my eye – I’m sure you know what I mean!

 

Hopefully, the eye magnifier will solve the problem.  It’s only a small thing in the grand-plan of life, but it drives me insane and it’s becoming a major problem for me.

 

The eye clinic, run by Moorfields, which is the premier eye hospital in the UK, have offered me electrolysis to solve the problem.  It only has a 50% success rate, and I’m not sure if I fancy that amount of discomfort for a remedy which may not work.

 

My brain surgery saved my life some 28 years ago, so I suppose an irritating eye problem is nothing, to them, in comparison!

 

I’ll keep you updated on my progress, and thank you for your help and comments.

 

Regards,  Stephen. From Bedford England.                                     

………………………

and follow up from Stephen below:

Hello Margaret

The eye magnifier is excellent, and as it turns out, it will be very useful to me in ways I did not expect.  When the magnifier arrived, I was able to see the offending ingrown eyelash very clearly, but as I received my appointment with Moorfields at the same time, I couldn’t remove it as they had asked me not to.  They couldn’t do the electrolysis if I had removed the eyelash – if you see what I mean. 

When doing the electrolysis, they also took a small biopsy.

 

I had a follow-up visit to Moorfields 2 weeks ago.  The electrolysis they did (on the lower right eye lid) seems to have worked perfectly in permanently removing the ingrown-eyelash, which is good because it has a success rate of only 50%.  The results of the biopsy they took from the eye lid are a different story though.  It seems I have keratosis, which is an over-production of keratin cells in the skin, which may be caused by too much sun in “older people” – God, I’m middle aged now – “older person” and it’s now official!  Keratosis is a pre-malignant condition from which there is little, or no, escape.

So, the next stage, if it happens, is the big C.

 

I’m OK with that now, but it has taken two weeks to be able to see logically around the “cancer” word.  I’m neurotically looking at the eyelid every day now in the Magnifier to check for changes, so the thought is ever present.  I have to let them know if there are any “sinister” (as they put it) changes.

I came through severe brain surgery 28 years ago against very bad odds.

 

Hay-ho, such is life.

Regards, and God Bless

 

Stephen. From Bedford, UK

·        Hi Margaret & Roy.

I use your wonderful invention several times a week. I seem to have eyelashes that regularly fall out & end up in one or other eye.  Your Magnifier is invaluable. With it I can find the offending lash & remove it with a folded tissue.

 

Re my eyesight, I have virtually no vision in my right eye. I have severe and untreatable scarring of the cornea due to a shingles infection some years ago. I cannot see anything at all with that right eye, but I can use the vision in my normal 20-20 left eye when using the Magnifier, to see the reflection of either eye.

  

Feel free to pass on my comments to any other potential clients who have monocular vision.

Hi Margaret,

 

My good eye, it has 20:20 vision for long distance but I do need glasses for reading.

 

 So far the batteries are still working but I don't know how much longer they will last. I have just looked at your original invoice & see that I have been using the Magnifier with success for nearly four years so I guess the batteries must be near the end of their life.

 

Dr J Wells,

·          Hello Roy,

I have a constant problem with ingrown eyelashes.   My optometrist got tired of pulling them out and sent me to an ophthalmologist who performed a cryoablation (freezing the roots) but now I have two or three instead of ten lashes so it hasn’t solved the problem.

Your mirror sounds great, but the trouble is that the ingrown lashes are in my right eye in which I have no vision at all.  So I have to look with my left eye at the lashes in my right eye to pull them out – holding my glasses cockeyed so I look through the left lens while holding the right one above my eye so I can get at the lashes.    The result that I often can’t find them

Looking at the pictures of your mirror on the website, I wonder if it’s big enough to enable me to inspect my right eye with my left one and get enough magnification. I would appreciate your advice on this aspect before I commit to purchase.

Sincerely, Richard Q, Tasmania

………………

Received the Magnifier, I think it’s awesome, and has the sort of magnification I need to see the fine lashes that bother me, as the sight in my “good” eye is quite poor – I nearly lost it altogether!

I am getting on pretty well with the tweezers – a big improvement on what I had!!

It will be great not to be dependent on the optometrist’s goodwill.

I really do appreciate your interest and help, and will tell everyone about your wonderful products.

My troublesome lashes grow relatively slowly so that in the past I have had to go to the optometrist every 4 or 5 weeks, so my test will come in a couple of weeks when I try to do the job myself. Thanks for being so helpful.

Kind regards, Richard Q., Tasmania

·        Hi Margaret; 

    I was going to tell you, the magnifier is a great tool for removing the eye lashes from the eye.

    It takes a few minutes to get the feel of it, but it works. Thank the Lord.

    Thank you again. I love You and Roy

·      I want your device for removing my contact lens, which I find very difficult.  Part of the

th problem is my vision is impaired. I am 69 years old and my vision is only going to get worse. 

 By the way, I am far sighted and have used "mono vision" with a contact in my left eye only for many years.  As I get older and my eyes get weaker, it is difficult to remove and insert the contact lens. The magnification is adequate for my use, and is remarkable. 

  Thank you for your patience and help.  It’s been a pleasure to do business with you.

·       Hello Roy and Margaret,

The Magnifier arrived this morning.

Thanks for the "invention" and good service.

 I will be sure to mention your clever device to anyone I run across with "our problem".

Regards, John Carroll and again below…………….

Dear Margaret,

I now have had the opportunity to use the eye magnifier several times and recognize that it takes patience and dexterity. I wish my eyelashes were black instead of blond, because they are really hard to see when they are tiny, and often the small ones, if they are close to the eye ball, can be very uncomfortable on every blink. Your tweezers are especially good at pulling out the really small ones.

Putting aside the expense (although an important factor), the main reason I enjoy having the eye magnifier is the flexibility of doing it on my own and being in control of the process. Several times when I have had an optometrist remove them, understandably they missed some small ones, and I found myself going back a few days later. Also, I realize that with the passing years, they will only become more frequent. We leave for our Florida home in a week and I would appreciate your sending another magnifier and tweezers so we will have one in both our homes.

Thanks for making a business transaction a personal one.

I am so looking forward to receiving a package from one of my favorite places in the world, Australia.

Many thanks for your advice and kindness, John Carroll from Florida USA

 Hi John

 I'm pleased that you like our personal service, we prefer to deal with humans not automated services ourselves, and we both like old fashioned good manners, so that is how we treat people.... with respect, great service and speedy delivery.

·       Hi Margaret

The parcel arrived today all safe and sound.

I picked it up on the way back from seeing my Eye Specialist, for a check-up after having a very mild dose of shingles. I saw him a week ago for the same reason and that’s when he told me of your invention. No trouble getting it into service where to my astonishment I found another 8 very fine little hairs all ready to stick into my eyes. He had missed them, or was leaving them for me to discover!!?

Anyway it is brilliant, I rang him to tell him so. You can quote me as a very satisfied customer.

Kind regards, Peter Fitchett from Victoria

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

·       Greetings Margaret,
 I got the magnifier and am impressed with the power and clarity. No ingrown eyelashes yet and if I never get another one, I'll still consider it money well spent. Feel free to use my words and name, Margaret and best of luck in your endeavours. I'm sure there are many people who would be grateful to know that such a product existed. It's the age old problem of how to get the word out.
Best wishes, Frank Quinn
