- FDA has requested that additional non-clinical device testing be conducted on the OpteJet dispenser as required for a drug/device combination product;
- No additional clinical work related to MydCombi is required;
- The additional testing that the company is conducting now may be referenced in future regulatory applications for its other late-stage assets, MicroLine and MicroPine, potentially streamlining the review processes for those programs;
Eyenoviaanticipates resubmitting the MydCombi NDA in the third quarter of this year.

Sean Ianchulevparticipated in a myopia panel discussion, Myopia Control: Corrective Lenses, Drugs and Diagnostics, at the Eyecelerator@AAO 2021 Meeting, which was held on Thursday, November 11, 2021at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Centerin New Orleans, LA.
“At the same time, we enrolled the first patient in VISION-2, which is the second Phase 3 study to evaluate MicroLine as a potential temporary, on-demand treatment for presbyopia, or blurred near vision. Recall that the results from our first Phase 3 study, VISION-1, were positive. If these results are consistent, we will be well positioned to file for regulatory approval in this indication as well, giving us potential line of sight to two approved, commercially available products. We anticipate topline data from VISION-2 mid-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 solution) 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. Treatment options are typically device-based, such as reading glasses and contact lenses. 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 solution) 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 Health Companies, Inc. in
