Thea Pharmaceuticals was established in the UK in 2008 we have grown rapidly due to a combination of new product launches (14 in the last 5 years) and product acquisitions.
Initially focused on the areas of Dry Eye, Lid Hygiene and Eye Nutrition we have since expanded to offer 34 products in eight Therapy Areas:
At the same time as our product portfolio has increased, we have also been investing in growing our company infrastructure. Our team has grown from 5 staff in 2011 to over 50, with teams working in three main Business Units – Consumer, Medical and Surgical. In 2014 we moved to our offices based at Keele University Science & Innovation Park in the grounds of Keele University.
We are uncompromising in our approach to developing the best eye care solutions that won’t damage or irritate eyes. That’s why we are committed to being 100% preservative-free, because of the well-known issues caused by preservatives, such as BAK (Benzalkonium Chloride) , that are found in many ophthalmic products.
Thea Pharmaceuticals has three strategic pillars which are reflected in our company ethos – “Driving Innovation, Education and Professionalism in improving Eye Health” and we stand by our motto, “Eye care without compromise”, because we believe neither the public nor professionals should be given sub-standard products.
Just as we won’t compromise our high standards, we want to support ophthalmologists who feel the same. We invest heavily in education and this is demonstrated by our award-winning ‘Dry Eye Project’ and the Thea Eye Health Conference which has replaced it. Other significant educational investments include the prestigious Moorfields International Glaucoma Symposium and the Thea Birmingham Corneal Meeting, which was launched in 2015.
Thea Pharmaceuticals are committed to supporting eye care professionals and to making a difference in the eye health of the people that use our products.
