Harrow announced that Vevye (cyclosporine ophthalmic solution) 0.1% is now available for purchase in the United States and is backed by a 100% money-back guarantee program.1 Vevye, which was approved by the FDA in June 2023, is the first and only cyclosporine-based product indicated for the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease (DED). It is a non-preserved, water-free semifluorinated alkane eye drop that is to be instilled twice daily.

“We are thrilled to announce the availability of VEVYE for our customers and their patients,” Mark L. Baum, chairman and chief executive officer of Harrow, said in a press release. “VEVYE is powered by the unique combination of the reliable and trusted active ingredient, cyclosporine, and a water-free semifluorinated alkane delivery vehicle, perfluorobutylpentane. We are excited to see VEVYE’s exceptional clinical trial data come to life as U.S. dry eye disease patients are now able to access and experience a highly tolerable product that provides rapid onset of relief and sustained improvement of both signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. Because of VEVYE’s unique combination of both a potent 0.1% cyclosporine solute and a pH- and osmolarity-free semifluorinated alkane, VEVYE is both evolutionary and revolutionary, solving an unmet need for eyecare professionals treating the tens of millions of American chronic dry eye disease sufferers.”
