Altacor is a Cambridge-based company that is building a portfolio of differentiated ophthalmic products for the European market.
It has developed a range of educational materials and training courses for health professionals.
To help ensure eye drops are administered correctly, Altacor has produced new advice sheets explaining the importance of a good technique and good hygiene. The company has also uploaded a training video to YouTube designed to help carers and others administer eye drops for elderly patients or for those who are unable to easily use eye drops themselves.
Nurse practitioners interested in offering or attending training sessions in dry eye diagnosis are encouraged to contact Altacor.
