Round  1

Reviewer 1 Report

Manuscript prepared by T.Bíró and Z. Aigner is devoted to review of approaches in which the cyclodextrins and mucoadhesive polymers are used in ocular drug delivery. Manuscript is well prepared. However, works by Prof. V. Khutoryanskiy are important in this field and should be mentioned. I think that these works could improve the quality of manuscript.

Reviewer 2 Report

 I have some comments related to following aspects:

1. Some phrases are difficult to understand. For example, see lines 23-29, 36-38, 39-40, 47-49, 63-65, 73-75, … 174-177 and so on. Please reformulate them.

2. English revision is mandatory: see line 14 Addition of solubility enhancer cyclodextrin derivatives and mucoadhesive … I suggest By addition of solubility enhancer cyclodextrin derivatives and mucoadhesive … OR Adding of solubility enhancer cyclodextrin derivatives and mucoadhesive …

3. Please insert the abbreviation for Stability constant (line 121): Ks.

4. Please use patient-compliance instead patient-compliant.
