The increasing demand for advanced treatment options for DES is expected to be favorable for the growth of the Lifitegrast ophthalmic solution market. The rising geriatric population across the world that is prone to several health conditions also accounts for the high prevalence of dry eye syndrome as a secondary condition.

Moreover, increasing awareness about the management of this condition is further assisting the market’s growth.
