And that’s a wrap! As 2023 comes to a close, we look back on another incredible year full of new milestones.
Starting off 2023 on the right foot, we released a 30-day format of our I-VU® OMEGA-3 PLUS capsules, creating a more affordable way for patients to try our omega-3 for dry eyes capsule supplement. With a total of 1824 mg of the most important Omega-3 fatty acids per daily dose, I-VU® OMEGA-3 PLUS helps to provide relief and improve symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome, including support for proper tear function in adults.
In July, we relaunched our iconic I-VU® OMEGA-3 liquid supplement with an increased amount of DPA. It is a great alternative to our capsule format with a total of 2340 mg of essential omega-3s in one daily dose, plus vitamin D3 & GLA. I-VU® OMEGA-3 helps relieve symptoms of dry eye syndrome while supporting proper tear function in adults and is also recommended for the maintenance of good health and helps to support cardiovascular health, cognitive health, immune function and the development and maintenance of bones and teeth.
In our continuous pursuit of advancing the science of dry, we put a large emphasis on supporting our products with scientific studies. This year, we released two new studies outlining the excellent performance of our signature lines: I-DROP® and I-LID ’N LASH®.
The study titled “Evaluating Viscosity and Tear Breakup Time of Contemporary Commercial Ocular Lubricants on an In Vitro Eye Model” focused on our I-DROP® line and demonstrated the incredible performance of our preservative-free artificial tears compared to competitor products.
The study titled “I-LID ’N LASH® PLUS: a safe and effective product in managing Demodicosis in vivo” was conducted on I-LID ’N LASH® PLUS, our ocular hygiene cleanser with 5% tea tree oil. The study demonstrates that it is both effective at managing Demodicosis by reducing the collarettes/cylindrical dandruff counts, improving tear film stability and is also safe for the meibomian glands.

Events like this give us a chance to meet current and potential customers, and we cherish the connections and new relationships we get to create.
