Dry eye disease (DED) is a condition characterized by the loss of tear film homeostasis, caused by the inadequate production or the rapid evaporation of tears. Only a limited number of approved agents are available in the United States to treat DED. AbbVie’s blockbuster Restasis was the only FDA-approved therapy for 13 years, until the launch of Novartis’s Xiidra in 2016, the newer Restasis MultiDose formulation in 2017, Sun Ophthalmics’ Cequa in 2019, and Kala Pharmaceuticals’ Eysuvis and Oyster Point’s Tyrvaya in 2021. In addition to these drugs, off-label ophthalmic corticosteroids and antibiotics are often prescribed to manage DED. The claims analysis provides manufacturers of current treatments, as well as those developing novel agents, with real-world insight regarding recent trends in the use of drugs in DED.
