Addressing a Gap in the Treatment of Dry Eye Disease
Room: Magnolia 5&6
Description: Dry Eye Disease (DED) is very common, but generally undertreated. There are over 18 million people in the US diagnosed with DED although it’s estimated that as many as 38 million are affected, however, only as few as 1.2 million are being actively treated with a prescription medication. DED is characterized by 2 main subtypes: Aqueous Deficient and Evaporative. Inflammation is common in both. Studies show up to 90% of ALL DED cases have an evaporative component, which represents a treatment gap and unmet need. MIEBO™ is the first and only prescription eye drop approved by FDA that specifically targets evaporation.
