Dry eye disease is a particularly common and pervasive range of conditions. Demand for dry eye treatments is increasing worldwide and is spurred by a variety of factors. The eyePoC Project is proposed to clinically validate a novel PoC device, the so-called “TearMonitor”, based on direct detection and quantification of protein biomarkers in tears of patients affected of dry eye disease. The execution of this project will allow the involved partners, Horus-Pharma and Bioftalmik, to test the device in a coordinated multicentre study and to internationally launch the TearMonitor as a European initiative leaded by Pharmaceutical and Biotechnological SMEs. The support of this project by the European Commission will lead to a reduction of time to market, higher scope of centers, countries and final users to be reached, increased market impact on companies in the ophthalmology field worldwide and the possibility of address a bigger and more ambitious validation process.
