NEW YORK, Aug. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Eyenovia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYEN), an ophthalmic technology company commercializing Mydcombi™ (tropicamide+phenylephrine ophthalmic spray) for mydriasis and developing the Optejet® device for use both in connection with its own drug-device therapeutic product candidates for presbyopia and pediatric progressive myopia as well as out-licensing for additional indications, today announced its financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.
Second Quarter 2023 and Recent Business Developments
- Announced first commercial sale of Mydcombi to world-renowned board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Nathan M. Radcliffe, who becomes first to incorporate Mydcombi into his daily practice. The company will be following up with sales to key physicians in the upcoming weeks and preparing for national launch in early 2024.
- Advanced its pre-NDA presbyopia program, Apersure (Microline), and anticipates commencing the manufacture of registration batches in the fourth quarter of 2023.
- Continued to build out its manufacturing facilities in Redwood City, CA and Reno, NV, the former having a PDUFA date in November 2023 for use as a commercial facility.
- Delivered presentation at the annual OCTANE Ophthalmology Tech Forum 2023 reviewing the recent FDA approval of Mydcombi.
- Licensing partners Bausch+Lomb and Arctic Vision continued to enroll patients in their respective Phase 3 studies of Micropine (US and China) and Microline (China).
- Announced addition to widely followed Russell 2000 and Russell 3000 Indexes.
Michael Rowe, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We achieved very significant milestones since our last quarterly update, notably the FDA approval and first commercial sale of Mydcombi, officially transitioning us to a commercial stage company. We are now executing a targeted launch of Mydcombi while in parallel ramping up our internal manufacturing capabilities in anticipation of a broader campaign incorporating our Gen 2 Optejet device beginning in 2024.
“Regarding our pre-NDA presbyopia candidate, Apersure, we continue to advance this important program following receipt of feedback from FDA that established a clear and efficient path forward. The addressable presbyopia market for topical ophthalmic medications is a nearly one-billion-dollar market opportunity in the US alone, and we believe an effective solution that leverages our novel Optejet drug delivery platform and fits within the business model of optometrists will be highly differentiated in the marketplace. We plan to initiate the manufacture of registration batches of Apersure during the fourth quarter.
“We believe the approval and commercial availability of Mydcombi will fundamentally transform the way that topical eye drugs are developed and delivered, as we now have critical validation of our Optejet platform that will benefit not only our proprietary development programs, most notably Apersure, but current and future partnerships as well. To that end, we continue to have very productive discussions with potential partners that could ultimately see the Optejet incorporated into additional large market ophthalmology indications with persistent unmet needs.
“I am extremely pleased with our progress to date and look forward to a productive back half of the year,” Mr. Rowe concluded.
