Ophthalmic diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), presbyopia, dry eye disease (DED), ocular allergy and others may lead to visual impairment and blindness. Development of therapeutic strategies for ophthalmic diseases requires a comprehensive understanding of the etiology, molecular and anatomical pathogenic mechanisms and natural history of the disease. Simulating human diseases in animal models is critical to understanding several ocular diseases and developing novel drugs, drug delivery strategies as well as ophthalmic diagnostic technologies. Creative Bioarray specializes in preclinical ophthalmological studies to examine the efficacy of novel compounds and therapeutic modalities. Our models have been well established and optimized to facilitate the generation of reproducible datasets with meaningful endpoints.
