Ophthalmic Drugs Conference 2019

SMi Group19 - 20 November 2019, London, UK.
The global ophthalmic drug market size is expected to reach a value of $30 billion USD by 2023 with growing focus on alternative delivery approaches to replace intravitreal drug delivery and novel drug development being the key factors driving the market.

With this in mind, this year's Ophthalmic Drugs conference will explore new discoveries in the treatment of ocular rare disease; innovations in gene therapy; the challenges in drug delivery through a complex barrier; patient comfort and regulatory compliance which make up core components within the Ophthalmic Drug sphere.

New for 2019

The brand-new Focus Day on 'Novel Drug Delivery Through a Complex Barrier' will bring academic perspectives on the future for ocular drug delivery and notified bodies will provide a regulatory insight into this emerging field of ophthalmic drug development.
