Anticipates having product available to ship in January 2024
NEW YORK, Nov. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eyenovia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYEN), an ophthalmic technology company commercializing Mydcombi™ for mydriasis, preparing for regulatory approval of APP13007 for relief of pain and inflammation post ocular surgery, and incorporating its advanced Optejet® device for use both in connection with its own drug-device therapeutic product candidates for presbyopia and pediatric progressive myopia as well as out-licensing for additional indications, today announced that the FDA has approved Eyenovia’s Supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA), adding Coastline International as a contract manufacturer. Coastline will manufacture cartridge subassemblies for Mydcombi, the only FDA-approved tropicamide and phenylephrine hydrochloride fixed combination for mydriasis (office-based pupil dilation).
“One of the many benefits of Mydcombi is that, unlike eye droppers, there is no protruding tip that can come in contact with the patient’s eye. In many applications today, eyecare institutions and surgeons are discarding bottles after each use to prevent this risk of cross-contamination, creating waste and unnecessary expense,” stated Michael Rowe, chief executive officer of Eyenovia. “We believe Mydcombi, because of its design, addresses this challenge and can provide significant cost savings to doctors and surgical centers. With FDA approval of Coastline, our manufacturing capabilities are in place, and we anticipate initiating Mydcombi commercial production imminently with the goal of having product available to ship in January of 2024.”
