Eyenovia, founded in 2014 by Dr. Sean Ianchulev, is striving to bring microdosing into ophthalmology via the Optejet® dispenser, which administers ophthalmic solutions horizontally using our proprietary Microdose Array Print (MAP™) technology. Traditional eyedrops deliver four to five times larger volume than the human eye can actually hold, wasting medication, overdosing the eye with medication and preservatives1. The Optejet® dispenses approximately 8µL of medication to the eye as opposed to the approximately 40µL volume delivered by a traditional eyedropper. Nearly five times less medication is administered with the Optejet®, reducing exposure to drug and preservative by 75-80%, without sacrificing efficacy1. Eyenovia believes the Optejet® will shift the benefit/risk paradigm of drug delivery forward into the future with this innovation.
