ASX-listed AFT Pharmaceuticals has expanded its therapeutics range with a new dry eye therapy containing Omega-3.

The company has introduced NovaTears +Omega-3, which is now available in addition to the existing Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme-listed NovaTears. German firm Novaliq manufactures the therapies.

According to the company, NovaTears +Omega-3 is a unique eye lubricant and tear film stabiliser in a multi-dose bottle, also designed for the relief of evaporative dry eye disease and meibomian gland dysfunction.

It combines high quality and highly concentrated Omega-3 fatty acids of algae origin and Perfluorohexyloctane.
