Santen recently announced the acquisition of Eyevance, a US-based ophthalmology company, specialised in the development and commercialisation of topical ophthalmic products targeting the ocular surface and anterior segment. This partnership represents Santen’s first step in creating a strong footprint in the US as a global leader in ophthalmology.
