Ophthalmic Viscoelastic devices Market Size, Share, Growth 2027

Posted by Yashi on February 25th, 2022

Ophthalmic Viscoelastic devices Market Overview

Ophthalmic viscoelastic devices are fundamental tools that are used in cataract surgery. They are designed to protect and coat delicate intraocular tissues and improve visualization. The global ophthalmic viscoelastic devices market size is anticipated to reach USD 1,203.26 Mn at a CAGR of 11.6% by the end of the forecast period of 2017-2027, predicts Market Research Future (MRFR) in an in-depth study.

A substantial rise in the number of ophthalmic surgeries is a key factor influencing the growth of the global ophthalmic viscoelastic devices market. An increasing number of eye disorders require surgery which generates high demand for OVDs. As per a report published by Novartis healthcare in 2015, almost 4 Mn cataract surgeries are performed in the US every year.  OVDs make phacoemulsification easier and safer and thus have become standard in ophthalmic surgeries. OVDs are used separately or in a combination of both cohesive and dispersive. High prevalence of visual impairment and expanding healthcare expenditure is adding fuel to the growth of the market. Growing geriatric population and increase in the number of diabetic patients have also contributed significantly to the market growth.

Advancement in material science and development of better OVDs have demonstrated a high success rate in ophthalmic surgeries. In addition, improving reimbursement scenario and spreading awareness is expected to foster the growth of the market over the forecast period.
