About Us

Alimera Sciences (NASDAQ: ALIM), founded in June 2003, is a pharmaceutical company that specializes in the commercialization and development of prescription ophthalmic pharmaceuticals. We are presently focused on diseases affecting the back of the eye, or retina, because these diseases are not well treated with current therapies and will affect millions of people in our aging populations. Alimera Sciences’ management team are dedicated and focused to making Alimera a leading ophthalmic pharmaceutical company. Our team has demonstrated expertise through the extensive commercialization and development of ophthalmic products. Our strategy behind Alimera is to:
