Our Manufacturing capabilities are an outcome of years of R&D Excellence driving us towards
our vision - 'Preserve the eyes and not the drug'.
This vision led to the launch of an innovative game changer product line under 'Preservative Free Drug' lled in technologically designed bottles, which needs no preservatives to store drugs.
'Novelia ', a technology from France, brought in India for the first time by Eyekare Kilitch Ltd., is the solution that provides the benefit of the medication without the ill effects of any preservatives.
The state of art technology prevents bacterial contamination and avoids the need of preservatives over treatment duration Benefits of Preservative-free multi dose formulations are as under :
Preservatives are necessary evils in the conventional multi dose eye droppers, as the ambient non-sterile as well as the left
over drop exposed to ambience gains entry in the container from the same path as that of the drug flow path contaminating
the liquid inside.
Preservatives are added, as mandated, to prevent the growth of microbial contaminants and biodegradation. Thus, preservatives have become a key component in ophthalmic formulations, common among them are:
Benzalkonium chloride (BAC/BAK),
Stabilized Oxychloro Complex (SOC)
Though preservatives help keep the containers sterile over the course of multiple uses, various studies have proved that preservatives induce ocular toxicity particularly in long term therapy, multiple applications, aged patients and in pre existing ocular surface diseases, such as :
