Abstract:


Efficient delivery of ocular therapeutics with improved efficacy, enhanced bioavailablity and acceptable patient compliance presents unique challenges. This can be attributed to the presence of protective mechanisms, physicobiological barriers and structural obstacles in the eye. Nanotherapeutic interventions have been explored extensively over the past few years for to overcome these limitations. The present review focusses on the nanoformulations developed for the diagnosis and treatment of various ocular diseases besides providing an indepth insight into the patents reported for the same.
