NovaTears®+Omega-3 is a first-in-class, preservative free and clear eye drop containing 0,2% Omega-3. It stabilizes the lipid layer of the tear film and reduces the evaporation of the underlying water phase of the tear film.
What is special about NovaTears®+Omega-3?
NovaTears®+Omega-3 is water- and preservative-free and stable at ambient temperatures. The clear, multi-dose solution is intended for use as an ocular lubricant in conditions involving instability of the tear film leading to dry eye syndrome. NovaTears®+Omega-3 stabilizes the lipid layer of the tear film and reduces the evaporation of the underlying water phase of the tear film. NovaTears®+Omega-3 lubricates and protects the corneal surface and thereby efficiently relieves the symptoms associated with dry eye like burning, itching, stinging and foreign body sensation.
NovaTears®+Omega-3 eye-drops is a line extension of Novaliq’s existing CE-marked product NovaTears®.
What is the regulatory status of NovaTears®+Omega-3?
In Europe, the product is expected to be registered as CE-mark product under the medical device regulation later in 2017.
