- Entered into a development collaboration agreement with Formosa Pharmaceuticals to combine Eyenovia’s Optejet® dispensing technology with Formosa’s APNT nanoparticle formulation platform for the potential development of new topical therapeutics in high-value ophthalmic indications with significant unmet medical needs.
- Manufacturing facility in Redwood City is operational and producing clinical supply; legacy Reno facility is currently being inspected by the FDA as part of the Mydcombi review process; second facility in Reno anticipated to come online during the third quarter 2023.
- Development partner Arctic Vision continues to enroll patients in its Phase 3 study of Microline (ARVN003) as a potential treatment for presbyopia in
- Ended the fourth quarter of 2022 with approximately
$22.9 millionin total cash and cash equivalents.
“Regarding Microline, having completed our VISION 2 study, we recently received feedback from the FDA which outlines a clear path forward for the program. Importantly, the feedback is in line with our expectations, and our development timeline for the program remains unchanged. Presbyopia represents a very significant market opportunity for our company, and the agency’s feedback is very encouraging.”
“Finally, our co-development agreement with Formosa represents an opportunity to significantly expand our pipeline and will serve as a model for any future partnerships. We are in advanced discussions with additional potential partners to leverage the Optejet in high-value indications, and we are optimistic that we will sign one or more partnership agreements this year.”

About the VISION Trials
The VISION trials are Phase 3, double-masked, placebo-controlled, cross-over superiority trials that enroll participants with presbyopia. The primary endpoint is improvement in high-contrast binocular distance corrected near visual acuity in low light conditions. Microline is intended for the “on demand” improvement of near vision in people with presbyopia.
About Microline for Presbyopia
Microline (pilocarpine ophthalmic spray) is Eyenovia’s investigational pharmacologic treatment for presbyopia. Presbyopia, or farsightedness, is the non-preventable, age-related hardening of the lens, which causes a gradual loss of the eye’s ability to focus on nearby objects and is estimated to affect nearly 113 million Americans. Pilocarpine ophthalmic solution is known to constrict the pupil and improve near-distance vision by creating an extended depth of focus through its small aperture effect.
About MicroPine for Progressive Myopia
MicroPine (atropine ophthalmic spray) is Eyenovia’s investigational, potentially first-in-class topical treatment for the reduction of pediatric myopia progression, also known as nearsightedness, in children ages 3-12. It has been developed for comfort and ease-of-use in children, and its microdose administration is designed to potentially result in low systemic and ocular drug exposure. MicroPine has been licensed to Bausch+Lomb, Inc. in
About Mydcombi™ for Mydriasis
Mydcombi is Eyenovia’s investigational, first-in-class fixed-dose-combination product (tropicamide 1% and phenylephrine 2.5% ophthalmic spray) for pharmacologic mydriasis (eye dilation), which is targeted to improve the efficiency of the estimated 100 million office-based comprehensive eye exams performed every year in
About Optejet® and Microdose Array Print (MAP™) Therapeutics
Eyenovia’s Optejet microdose formulation and delivery platform for ocular therapeutics uses high-precision piezo-print technology to deliver ~8 μL of drug, consistent with the capacity of the tear film of the eye. We estimate the volume of ophthalmic solution administered with the Optejet is less than 20% of that delivered using conventional eyedroppers, thus reducing overdosing and exposure to drug and preservatives. Eyenovia’s patented microfluidic ejection technology is designed for fast and gentle ocular surface delivery. Successful use of the Optejet has been demonstrated more than 85% of the time after basic training in a variety of clinical settings compared to 40 – 50% historically seen with conventional eyedroppers. Additionally, future versions with smart electronics and mobile e-health technology are being designed to track and enhance patient compliance.
