Research delivers insight into the global ophthalmic viscosurgical devices market

Medical Market Research

Demand is primarily generated by growing elderly population associated with high potential for ophthalmic surgeries. Longer life expectancy and growing shift towards an older average age has led to increased incidences of cataract driving the global ophthalmic viscosurgical devices market.

Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Devices Market size is set to exceed USD 790 million by 2024; according to a new research report.

OVDs are an integral part of the modern anterior segment surgery.

The introduction of different multifocal IOL options that can fill gaps throughout the complete range of vision has strongly improved patient satisfaction and the quality of distance vision.

Most common eye diseases affecting the older age group include advanced age-linked macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, glaucoma, and blindness or poor vision. Many older people develop macular degeneration as part of the body's natural aging process.

Cataract surgery was the highest revenue generating application in 2015 due to high global prevalence. Increasing number of vitreoretinal surgeries among geriatric people will drive procedure demand.

Development of a low-cost vitreoretinal surgical system designed for emerging regions will expand vitreoretinal surgery demand.
