FDA-APPROVED TREATMENT FOR DEMODEX BLEPHARITIS (DB)

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

XDEMVY (lotilaner ophthalmic solution) 0.25% is indicated for the treatment of Demodex blepharitis.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Risk of Contamination: Do not allow the tip of the dispensing container to contact the eye, surrounding structures, fingers, or any other surface in order to minimize contamination of the solution. Serious damage to the eye and subsequent loss of vision may result from using contaminated solutions.

Use with Contact Lenses: XDEMVY contains potassium sorbate, which may discolor soft contact lenses. Contact lenses should be removed prior to instillation of XDEMVY and may be reinserted 15 minutes following its administration.

BEFORE AFTER

44% and 55% of patients taking XDEMVY in SATURN-1 (N=209) and SATURN-2 (N=193), respectively, achieved a significant improvement in their eyelids (reduction of collarettes to no more than 2 collarettes per upper lid) at Day 43 vs 7% (N=204) and 12% (N=200) of patients taking vehicle (P<0.01 in each trial).*

All images are of actual patients who participated in clinical trials for Tarsus Pharmaceuticals.

ADVERSE REACTIONS: The most common adverse reaction with XDEMVY was instillation site stinging and burning which was reported in 10% of patients. Other ocular adverse reactions reported in less than 2% of patients were chalazion/hordeolum and punctate keratitis.

Please see full Prescribing Information available at Booth 1931.

Reference: XDEMVY [prescribing information]. Tarsus Pharmaceuticals, Inc; 2023.

*The safety and efficacy of XDEMVY for the treatment of DB were evaluated in a total of 833 patients (415 of whom received XDEMVY) in two 6-week, randomized, multicenter, double-masked, vehicle-controlled studies (SATURN-1 and SATURN-2). Patients were randomized to either XDEMVY or vehicle at a 1:1 ratio, dosed twice daily in each eye for 6 weeks. All patients enrolled were diagnosed with DB. The primary efficacy endpoint was defined as the proportion of patients with collarette reduction to no more than 2 collarettes per upper eyelid at Day 43.

DEMONSTRATIONS

Ophthalmic Lasers

YAG/SLT combo lasers will be on display along with high-fidelity eye models whereby attendees may simulate performing three of the most common optometric laser procedures:

Laser Station 1: Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty for Open-angle Glaucoma is the most common optometric laser procedure performed today and is considered first-line therapy for most forms of open-angle glaucoma.

Laser Station 2: Laser Peripheral Iridotomy is a true emergent procedure that can be e ectively performed in the o ce setting.

Laser Station 3: YAG Capsulotomy is the standard way of managing posterior capsular opacification and has been performed in optometric practices since the late 1980s.

Gonioscopy for Laser Procedures: Practice visualizing the angle in preparation for laser trabeculoplasty.

Lateral Canthotomy and Cantholysis: This Emergent Procedure should be a part of every eyecare professional’s repertoire, or at least knowledge base. In the event of an emergency, such as a retrobulbar hemorrhage following trauma (including o ce surgery), this 15-second procedure can save the day and preserve someone’s vision! Stop by and learn how to diagnose a retrobulbar hemorrhage and, more importantly, how to manage one!

BOTOX Simulation: Learn how to treat conditions such as blepharospasm by letting our instructors show you how to prepare and deliver BOTOX injections in optometric practice. Then, take a moment to practice on our injection demonstration model.

Injections: Managing visual problems and eye diseases may require administering certain types of injections in specific situations. Medical knowledge and practices evolve over time, so stay up to date with the latest developments in injection techniques, medications, safety protocols, and best practices. Our team is here to help you hone your injection skills!

Paracentesis: Anterior chamber paracentesis is a specialized procedure common in the post-operative care of cataract patients and in an emergent setting. Paracentesis involves a balance between theory and hands-on practice, and we are ready to explain and demonstrate the procedure and give you the confidence to practice in our skills transfer wet lab!

Radiofrequency Surgical : Radiofrequency (RF) surgical refers to a medical procedure that utilizes radiofrequency energy to address various skin-related concerns. This minimally invasive technique has gained popularity in optometric practice for its ability to improve skin and remove many benign lesions along the periorbita with little trauma and downtime.

IPL: IPL is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-intensity light pulses to target and treat various skin and eye conditions. It works by delivering specific wavelengths of light energy to the targeted area, which can be absorbed by certain tissues, leading to various therapeutic e ects. View an IPL demonstration and see how easy it is to utilize this treatment for your patients!

IPROX: Unlike other IPL devices on the market, this revolutionary light platform delivers synergistic pulses of energy through an ergonomically designed handpiece to establish pathways for deeper penetration, resulting in a safe, e ective, and more comfortable treatment experience for patients of all skin types. From addressing skin discoloration and acne to vascular inflammation and hair removal, iProX is a diverse system designed to maximize treatment outcomes for a wide range of conditions.

Cryosurgery Demo: Cryosurgery with liquid nitrogen is a time-honored method of lesion removal and a practical way to begin incorporating optometric surgical procedures into your practice. It is minimally invasive and requires no prior anesthetic injection. Let us show you the basic principles involved!

Supported in part by:

Suturing Demo: Let our instructors demonstrate how to place a simple suture on a suture simulator model. We will guide you as you place a stitch and tie surgeon’s knots.
