ENTOD Pharmaceuticals received approval from CDSCO for PresVu, a treatment for presbyopia, by the Subject Expert Committee (SEC) of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO). PresVu is a eye drop in India designed to alleviate the need for reading glasses among individuals grappling with presbyopia.

Presbyopia, characterised by blurred near vision due to the decreased flexibility of the eye’s natural lens, primarily impacts individuals aged 40 and above. PresVu offers swift relief and temporary correction of vision problems associated with presbyopia. PresVu eye drops adjust rapidly to tear pH, ensuring sustained efficacy and safety for long-term use.

The company completed development of these eye drops in late 2022 after which it was subjected to clinical testing in India. Reportedly, Phase 3 clinical trials carried out in India and the US have demonstrated PresVu’s efficacy in enhancing close-up vision within minutes of application, with effects lasting up to six hours. This formulation holds promise for individuals aged 40 to 55 with mild to intermediate presbyopia.
