Our Science

Introduced in 1965, Dipyridamole was originally established as a treatment for cardiovascular disorders. The drug’s effectiveness foreshadowed its substantial promise for the treatment of retinal disorders of the eye and was further investigated for the application of ocular surface disease in 2012.
