Drug delivery systems could improve poor adherenceJonathan S. Myers, MD, reports that intraocular drug delivery systems could help solve the problem of poor adherence in patients taking glaucoma medications. Implanted in the eye, the systems would allow for glaucoma drugs to gradually dissolve or elute medication.
