Dry eye disease (DED) refers to the general term of a variety of diseases related to abnormal tear quality, quantity, or dynamics, accompanied by eye discomfort (dry eyes, tingling, burning, gritty feeling, etc.) and/or ocular surface tissue lesions. Which may be caused by any reason (including aging, wearing contact lenses, certain drugs, eye diseases, other diseases, or environmental factors).
Ms. Li Zhilin, CEO of China Pharma said: "Due to the increasingly developed technology, the time and frequency of using the electronic products have significantly increased in recent years. In addition, with the aging of the population, DED has become the largest ophthalmic disease in China, and the diagnosis and treatment rate is expected to maintain an upward trend for a long time. What we acquired is an ophthalmic oxygen enriched atomization therapeutic device with a patent technology. This device is to fill in the vacuum of the current market demand in devices to treat DED, visual fatigue and other problems, as well as recovery after eye surgery. We plan to launch it to the market next year. We are confident that the launch of this product will bring excellent treatment experience to every DED patient, which will also boost the Company’s sales. "
