NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Eyenovia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYEN), a commercial-stage ophthalmic technology company commercializing Mydcombi™ (tropicamide+phenylephrine ophthalmic spray for mydriasis) and developing the Optejet® device for use both in connection with its own drug-device therapeutic product candidates for presbyopia and pediatric progressive myopia as well as out-licensing for additional indications, today announced that it has entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with a leading health care investor in an offering of 4,198,633 shares of its common stock, pre-funded warrants to purchase up to 2,252,979 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase up to 4,838,709 shares of common stock (the “Offering”).
