The process of combining, mixing, or changing substances to create a treatment according to the needs of a specific patient is known as drug compounding. Compounding is the process of mixing two or more medications. Individual chemicals are blended in the exact strength and dosage form required for the patient. Compounded drugs are prepared based on a practitioner's request. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the ingredients, which generally consist of drugs that have undergone FDA clinical trials and receive approval. Compounding is carried out when a patient cannot be treated with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drug such as when a patient is allergic to a dye in a medicine.

The U.S. ophthalmic compounding pharmacies market is estimated to be valued at US$ 219.2 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period (2021-2028).
