Eyenovia Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eyenovia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYEN), a biopharmaceutical company developing a pipeline of ophthalmology products utilizing its patented piezo-print technology to deliver microdosed medications topically to the eye, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

2Q 2018 Business Highlights

  • EYN PG21 trial results demonstrated robust intraocular pressure lowering and patient usability;
  • Received notice of allowance from USPTO for two additional patent applications for ophthalmic drug delivery; and
  • Expanded executive management team by hiring industry veteran Michael Rowe as VP of Marketing.             

Dr. Sean Ianchulev, Eyenovia’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer commented, “In the first half of 2018, we further validated our novel therapeutic platform with compelling IOP lowering and usability results from our EYN PG21 study and with the allowance of two new U.S. patents. As we continue to advance our late stage pipeline and, in particular, accelerate MicroPine for progressive myopia to address an estimated $5 billion potential U.S. market opportunity, we are excited to bring on board Michael Rowe as our VP of Marketing. In the near term, we look forward to leveraging his wealth of knowledge as we plan to submit two Investigational New Drug applications this year as well as the OTC registration for MicroTears for dry eye in 2019. We believe Michael’s commercial ophthalmology experience at both Aerie Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Allergan plc will be a valuable asset in planning our strategic direction as we near commercialization.”
