Ocular Drug Delivery Technologies Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020
Date:8/22/2014

Albany, New York (PRWEB) August 22, 2014

Ophthalmic drug delivery technologies or mechanisms represent one of the interesting and challenging endeavors as the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of the eye renders highly impervious properties to the foreign substances. Ocular drug delivery technologies provide several advantages such as possibility of self medication and minimal use of needles; also it enables high penetration of low molecular weight drugs and provides specific targeting within the ocular globe. On the other hand limited permeability of cornea results in low absorption of the drugs and also it renders brisk elimination of drug through the eye due to blinking and continuous tear flow and can cause unwanted systemic side effects as major portion of the dose is drained into lacrimal ducts. These factors collectively impact the growth and acceptance of several ocular drug delivery technologies. The various approaches adopted to ensure development of effective drug delivery technologies are controlled and sustained release of drugs and improvement in bioavailability. Lacrisert, Retisert, Vitrasert, Durasite and Microneedle are some of the instances of patented technologies employed in ocular drug delivery systems.

Eye drops, systemic means, topical means and intraocular injections represent the conventional means of ocular drug delivery mechanisms. These mechanisms have several disadvantages such as increased patient discomfort, less efficient, low absorption and other side effects. Hence, this leads to the development of alternative and effective systems for delivery of ophthalmic medications. Intense research is carried out to ensure sustained and controlled release of the active agents with negligible side effects. It is observed that several drug delivery technologies are in developmental phases. For instance, intravitreal injections constitute an effective and direct approach to deliver medications to th
