As a pharmaceutical company specialized in the field of ophthalmology, Santen Pharmaceutical is dedicated to improving the eyesight and health of people. Santen maintains the greatest share in Japan’s prescription ophthalmic pharmaceutical market. This is a result of the Company’s constant efforts in “Creation and Innovation” throughout the past over 120-year history.

Santen is carrying out its business in 12 countries worldwide, and its products are sold in over 70 countries. Santen produces around 300 million bottles* of ophthalmic solutions each year at four manufacturing sites – Noto and Shiga in Japan, Suzhou (China) and Tampere (Finland). That makes us a world leader in the production of ophthalmic solutions.

We are pursuing various strategies in order to achieve our long term strategic vision towards 2020, to become a Specialized Pharmaceutical Company with a Global Presence. To realize this vision, we are strengthening our pipeline of compounds for development, building a global clinical development system, and investing in the development of new businesses in the rapidly growing markets in Europe and Asian countries including Japan, where we can best maximize our strengths.

Santen is committed to developing innovative ophthalmologic drugs that contribute to the improvement of QOL (Quality of Life) and QOV (Quality of Vision) of patients around the world. Santen creates competitive therapies by selectively channeling resources into three therapeutic categories-corneal and conjunctival epithelial disorders, glaucoma and hypertension, and retinal disorders-as we deem these markets to have high unmet medical needs and strong growth prospects.

Since medical needs vary significantly in the different markets around the world, we aim to enhance pipeline, raise the probability of success, and boost productivity to shorten development times, for the purpose of rapidly developing differentiated products that satisfy unmet medical needs. By focusing our efforts on ophthalmology and related areas, we will develop scientific knowledge and organizational capabilities that are unique and original to Santen.
