  • Publication number: 20130131171
    Abstract: A jojoba formulation has been developed for administration to the meibomian gland, for treatment of the symptoms of dry eye, and/or for drug delivery to the meibomian gland. The formulation incorporates the natural product jojoba wax, or components thereof, to enhance the spreading of the artificial tear as well as stabilize the tear film. The jojoba wax tear relieves irritation and discomfort as well as sharpens the blurred vision. Jojoba, because of its close chemical and physical properties to meibomian gland secretions, is effective upon topical application to penetrate the lid margin to reach the gland tissues where it may exert a therapeutic effect with or without an adjunctive agent.
