According to the National Eye Institute, the number of Americans with major eye diseases is increasing, and vision loss is becoming a major public health problem. As the population ages, it is more important than ever to find safe and effective ways to maintain the precious gift of good vision. InSite Vision is committed to developing new technologies and products based on the understanding of ocular diseases to help fight against blindness, vision impairment, and eye discomfort.
Ocular infection, the current focus of InSite Vision development efforts, includes conjunctivitis, blepharitis, and trachoma. These conditions can have serious consequences if left untreated.
Glaucoma is responsible for more irreversible blindness than any other condition.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a condition that primarily affects the part of the eye responsible for sharp central vision.
Diabetic retinopathy, a common complication of diabetes, can cause serious damage to the eye.
