Abstract This paper provides a comprehensive overview of the various approaches currently used in the development of ocular drug delivery systems for the treatment of ocular diseases in animals. It is obvious from the literature that most of the products that are currently available are derived from human medicine without consideration given to the differences which exist between the anatomy and physiology of the eye of various animal species which ultimately affect product design and performance. As a result, many of the products for animal use seem in many circumstances inappropriate for animal care. The article deals with some aspects of eye anatomy and physiology of different animals, and then provides an overview of the most commonly encountered pathologies. The paper then discusses the currently available drug products and finally reviews new delivery concepts. Several hundred references are included in the paper and provide access to further information on the subject.
