Ophthalmic Squeeze Dispenser Technology Platform

THE versatile MULTI-DOSE technology platform for preservative-free ophthalmic formulations

Aptar Pharma's OSD is a multi-dose technology for preservative-free ophthalmic formulations.

The Ophthalmic Squeeze Dispenser (OSD) is designed to be used with a wide range of liquid ophthalmic medications, in particular those for chronic ophthalmic conditions such as glaucoma or dry eye; as the simple intuitive use is ideal for patients with these conditions. With this technology, preservatives are becoming obsolete, which will be appreciated by the high number of patients experiencing eye irritation or allergic responses associated with preserved formulations. The device can provide a cutting-edge life-cycle management of established products, using existing filling technology.
