Pressbox (Press Release) -
An invention idea springing from difficulties in removing soft contact lenses puts a London man in line for international success.Mark Sheldon invented the patented device which has aroused interest from around the world.Several companies are discussing options with him and all being well it should be in the shops in 6 months time.I set about the solution when i experienced problems using my fingers,i now know that i am not alone,either from people having an aversion to touching their eyes,or simply because they have dirty fingers through work or even long nails. My message is that if you have an idea for a product that may make someoneís life easier, then its worth pursuing.
