Challenges associated with eye care formulations

Eye drops can be very different from each other and their behavior is extremely difficult to predict. Artificial tears used to supplement the tear film do not contain active ingredients but vary in rheological properties such as viscosity depending on patients’ need from low to highly viscous. Eye drops containing active drugs, for glaucoma treatment as an example, may contain several of auxiliary compounds to stabilize the formulation. The dropper should always deliver an appropriate drop size, the formulation must be stable for the storage and in use period, and the forces to deliver a drop should remain in a reasonable range.
