Efficiency of XAL-EASE Device in Glaucoma and/or Ocular Hypertension (OHT) Patients, Treated With Xalatan or Xalacom
Xal-Ease is a novel Pfizer-Pharmacia device aimed to significantly facilitate the Xalatan/Xalacom instillation and to avoid loss of Xalatan/Xalacom eye drops due to incorrect instillation.
Patients on Xalatan/Xalacom who have consumed more than one bottle per month within a year according to consumption data drawn from the Clalit Health Services database, will use the Xal-Ease device for a year. The device is expected to reduce consumption of bottles and result in saving money for both patients and medical care providers.
