Monkey eyes have a macula just like the human eye. Effects of drugs on the macula are therefore exclusively seen in monkey eyes, and not in other models.
STZ Ocutox has experience in testing the effect of a number of drugs in monkey eyes applying a range of methods including:
- Subretinal surgery
- Laser induced choroidal neo-vascularization
- VEGF induced choroidal neo-vascularization model (in development)
