OcuMedic’s technology: Timed Drug Delivery to the Eye via a Contact Lens/Clear Corneal Bandage with 7 Day wear.The technology rests on 10 issued patents, and a recent Freedom to Operate (FTO) opinion. Efficacy has been proven in an animal model. The intellectual property teaches a novel therapeutic contact lens with memory capable of controlled release of first line ophthalmic agents, both anti-inflammatory and antibiotic. The technology has been developed for the most common and widely used contact lens material silicon hydrogel, (SiHy). The technology is also a platform technology and has been tested for a wide range of ten (10) other drugs as well as molecules to enhance lens comfort and treat dry eye. It has been shown that the extension of release has a strong dependence on mimicking biological recognition in the design exploiting the chemical diversity and amounts of monomers in relation to the drug.
