Abstract:


The structure of the eye is very complex in nature which makes it a challenging task for pharmaceutical researchers to deliver the drug at the desired sites via different routes of administration. The development of the nano-based system has helped in delivering the drug in the desired concentration. Improvement in penetration property, bioavailability, residence time has all been achieved by encapsulating drugs into liposomes, dendrimers, solid lipid nanoparticle, nanostructured lipid carrier, nanoemulsion and nanosuspension. This review puts emphasis on the need for nanomedicine for ocular drug delivery and recent developments in the field of nanomedicine along with recent patents published in the past few years.
