The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the Alaway eye drop for temporary relief of itchy eyes due to pollen, ragweed, grass, animal hair and dander.

An affiliate of Bausch Health acquired the U.S. rights to Alaway Preservative Free from Eton (NASDAQ: ETON) in 2019.

“We’re excited to add Alaway Preservative Free – the first and only OTC preservative-free formulation eye drop of its kind – to our existing Bausch + Lomb Consumer Health Care portfolio. Alaway Preservative Free can provide up to 12 hours of relief for people suffering from itchy eyes due to certain eye allergies,” said Joe Gordon, U.S. president, Bausch + Lomb. “We expect Alaway Preservative Free will be available for purchase in the Spring of 2021 at major retailers in time for the start of allergy season.”

Alaway Preservative Free is formulated to relieve eye itch within minutes and can provide up to 12 hours of eye itch relief with one dose.

Sean Brynjelsen, CEO of Eton Pharmaceuticals, said, “We are pleased the FDA has approved Alaway Preservative Free, and we look forward to collaborating with Bausch + Lomb to bring this unique eye drop to patients suffering from itchy eyes associated with eye allergies.”
