Abstract (en)

A structure in an eyecup accommodating type of container for eyewash liquid, by which the eyecup is not easily exposed outside when the container is not employed. In the container for eyewash liquid, there is provided a container body 11, an eyecup 12, and a bell-shaped outer cover 13 for covering an upper cap 14 and an eyecup 12 locating above the upper cap 14, in which the bell-shaped outer cover 13 is detachably mounted onto the upper cap 14. The outer cover 13 has, on its top interior surface, an outer cap retaining leg 27 that detachably retains the eyecup 12 the top and bottom of which are reversed. The eyecup 12 is retained in an interior space 16 defined by the outer cover 13 and an upper portion of the container body 11. Because the eyecup 12 is not exposed outside, it is sanitary. The eyecup 12 is integrated with the outer cover 13; therefore, its assembling process of the container in a maker where the container is filled up with an eyewash liquid, can be simplified. <IMAGE>
