Share

Nordic Pharma, Inc., a subsidiary of Nordic Group B.V., has launched LACRIFILL Canalicular Gel, a novel therapy for dry eye in the U.S. LACRIFILL Canalicular Gel is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid derivative and is FDA-cleared to temporarily block tear drainage by the occlusion of the canalicular system.

LACRIFILL Canalicular Gel allows patient’s eyes to be bathed in their own natural tears. It is customized for each individual patient and provides a full fill of the canalicular system. LACRIFILL Canalicular Gel is administered through a simple in-office procedure, which is reimbursed through the existing CPT code (68761), and the results last for six months.

“It’s been so exciting to be part of the launch of LACRIFILL Canalicular Gel, an interventional dry eye treatment that helps ophthalmologists with cataract, glaucoma and refractive surgeries and all of their dry eye needs. This dry eye therapy is truly changing practice and changing lives,” said Chief Commercial Officer of Eye Care U.S., Jai Parekh, MD, MBA.

Nordic Pharma is attending Kiawah Eye 2024 in Kiawah Island, SC from May 30-June 1 to share information about LACRIFILL Canalicular Gel and take orders. "LACRIFILL Canalicular Gel is a disruptive technology that will change how ophthalmologists practice,” said Program Director for Kiawah Eye and chairperson of the LACRIFILL U.S. Medical Advisory Board, Eric D. Donnenfeld, MD. “Having Nordic Pharma onsite to discuss how LACRIFILL Canalicular Gel will optimally occlude the canalicular system to maximize tear film preservation in patients with dry eye symptoms will be incredibly beneficial for Kiawah Eye attendees.”
