Helping people who suffer from eye diseases

Otsuka's researchers have persistently taken the untraveled path, resulting in highly innovative new products.

Otsuka has developed a new dry eye treatment that takes advantage of the mucin-promoting properties found in the company's oral anti-gastritis and anti-gastric ulcer agent, and this is now widely used by patients in Japan.

Eye Diseases

The eye serves the critical functions of sensing light and converting it to impulses that can be understood by the brain, giving us sight. Among the five senses of sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste, 80% of all human sensory input consists of information obtained through the eyes. Eye strain is characterized by symptoms such as tired eyes and headaches, while dry eye is characterized by eyes that are dry, gritty and painful.
