Novel Drug Delivery
Eximore is revolutionizing the delivery and efficacy of eye medication. Our innovative punctal plug significantly increases patient compliance and optimizes consistent dosing, therefore reducing the risk of vision loss and improving patient outcomes for a range of ophthalmic conditions.
Overcoming the Challenges of Ophthalmic Drug Delivery
Prescribing eye drops is the standard of care today used by physicians to treat conditions such as glaucoma and dry eye. However, eye drops are not the most effective or efficient means of drug delivery. Patient non-compliance, deviation from the therapeutic window and overuse are known challenges to the efficacy of eye drops. These challenges lead to vision loss or suboptimal outcomes that cannot be effectively controlled or monitored by a physician. Additionally, patients can experience side effects from preservatives contained in eye drops.
Alternatives to eye drops have been attempted, yet to date, these novel attempts have faced design and regulatory challenges.
