CEQUA, a new prescription dry eye solution, was just launched in Canada. CEQUA is one of three prescription drops approved in Canada to treat dry eye disease. What makes CEQUA unique is that it is formulated with Nanomicelle technology, which can form a protective shell around the active ingredient (cyclosporine) and deliver it to where it is needed on the eye’s front surface.
