Ask us about combinations to meet specific needs or medications that are currently unavailable or have been discontinued for non-safety reasons (such as when a newer therapy reduces the need and therefore decreased use results in the medication no longer being profitable to manufacturer).
Expert Ophthalmic Compounding Pharmacy Services
Traditional eye drops may not always address your specific eye concerns. At Pace Pharmacy, we offer sterile ophthalmic compounding, allowing us to create customized eye drops, and solutions tailored to your unique needs and prescriptions. Whether you have allergies, or dry eyes, require post-surgical medication, or need a specific combination of medications unavailable commercially, our expert pharmacists can formulate the perfect solution for you.
Adhering to OCP, NAPRA, and USP Standards in Ophthalmic Compounding
Your eye health is our top priority. That’s why we adhere to the strictest safety and quality standards. Our sterile compounding facilities are fully compliant with the Ontario College of Pharmacists (OCP), National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA), and United States Pharmacopeia (USP) guidelines, including Chapters <797> and <800>. This ensures your compounded medications are sterile, safe, and effective.
The Benefits of Choosing Preservative-Free Ophthalmic Preparations
Many commercially available eye drops contain preservatives to extend their shelf life. However, these preservatives can irritate sensitive eyes and contribute to dry eye syndrome. In certain cases, our preservative-free ophthalmic compounds offer a gentler alternative, ideal for individuals with sensitive eyes or allergies.
