Ophthalmic biomaterials: Advanced comfort and utility
We’ve spent more than a decade partnering with contact lens manufacturers to bring better vision to countless people. The first generation of silicone hydrogel (SiHy) lenses were introduced with support from DSM. As a result, millions of contact lens wearers today benefit from DSM technology. Meanwhile, our continued innovations in lubricious surfaces and antimicrobial technologies help reduce irritation and the ongoing threat of infection.
Drug delivery systems
Ophthalmic biopharmaceutical partners trust DSM to develop customized dosage forms that deliver both small and large compounds at specified rates and durations. Our breakthrough bioresorbable portfolio and materials science expertise allows us to design customized polymeric delivery systems offering release times from weeks to months.
Intraocular lens and corneal procedures
In recognition of the wide use of IOLs today, DSM is developing materials to enhance the ease of insertion. The result: Our unique bench-to-market approach helps our partners make new product ideas a commercial reality.
