A formulation approved both for use in the eye/ear is classified in S03, while formulations only licensed for use in the eye or the ear are classified in S01 and S02, respectively.
Most of the drugs in this group are topical preparations. Systemic preparations with clear ophthalmological indications are also classified in this group.
Small amounts of antiseptics in eye preparations do not influence the classification, e.g. benzalconium.
