Eye Therapeutic Areas

The major therapeutic areas in the field of ophthalmology are Dry Eye, Glaucoma, Eye Infections, Eye Allergies and Age Related Macular Degeneration. Many New Eye Care Products have been developed to protect and prevent vision. Many advanced treatments are being given by delivering a whole portfolio of innovative drugs and medical devices worldwide. Chemical preservatives are often used in eye drops to ensure sterility of the drops in multidose bottles. When used in short-term treatments, they are mostly well tolerated. For long-term use, e.g. in chronic conditions such as dry eye and glaucoma, more and more doctors recommend preservative-free products, as the preservatives may possibly cause you allergic reactions or symptoms of irritation. Symptoms may include stinging, burning, discomfort, irritation or eye dryness. The anti-microbial properties of preservatives are based on a non-specific biological activity that may be the cause of these reactions.

There are eye therapeutic areas which are to be focussed in this session. Dry eye is a condition in which there are insufficient tears to lubricate and nourish the eye. Tears are necessary for maintaining the health of the front surface of the eye and for providing clear vision. People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or have a poor quality of tears. Dry eye is a common and often chronic problem, particularly in older adults. Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time. It's often associated with a build-up of pressure inside the eye. Eye infections occur when harmful micro-organisms bacteria, fungi and viruses invade any part of the eyeball or surrounding area. Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen) Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a deterioration or breakdown of the eye's macula.
