ABSTRACT: Non-ionic surfactant vesicles (Niosomes or NSVS) are widely studied as an alternative to hydrated surfactant monomers. Non-ionic surfactants of wide structural types have been found to be useful alternatives to phospholipids in fabrication of vesicular system. They are the microlamellar structures formed by the mixing of Non-ionic surfactant of alkyl or dialkyl polyglycerol ether class and cholesterol with subsequent hydration in aqueous media. This review article deals with the detailed use of Niosome as novel drug delivery system for ophthalmic use, since this route is most frequently used for the treatment of eye infection.
