Eye Valve Devices Market: Introduction

  • Eye valve device helps to lower intraocular pressure in cases where extreme medical therapy with eye drops and laser treatment is ineffective. These valves are usually made of silicone. Eye valve device comprises a micro-tube connected to a small end-plate or reservoir.
  • Public awareness about common eye conditions is increasing in developing countries, leading to early diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. Moreover, a large number of organizations are dedicated to fighting blindness, restoring vision, and spreading awareness about eye health.
  • The National Eye Institute, the National Association for Visually Handicapped, the National Federation of the Blind, and Prevent Blindness are some eye health organizations concerned with prevention of eye diseases
  • The global eye valve devices market is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period, owing to rise in prevalence and incidence rates of eye-related disorders and surge in awareness about the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders.

Key Drivers of Global Eye Valve Devices Market

  • According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 285 million people across the globe are visually impaired, with around 90% of them living in low to middle income countries. Moreover, nearly 95 million people suffer from cataract and 20 million suffer from various eye conditions including glaucoma, muscular degeneration, infections, and childhood-related conditions. Significant increase in incidence of eye-related diseases, especially in the developed countries, is anticipated to drive the eye valve devices market. According to a Prevent Blindness report, the number of people in the U.S. suffering from cataract is expected to increase from 24.4 million in 2010 to 30.5 million by 2020, and the number of people suffering from diabetic retinopathy in the country is projected to increase from 7.7 million in 2010 to 9.2 million by 2020.

Non-compliance with Treatment to Hamper Market Growth

  • Lack of knowledge, intolerance, misunderstanding, and denial are a few reasons behind non-compliance. A study published by the American Academy of Ophthalmology revealed that the overall non-compliance rate was around 50% for glaucoma, with lack of knowledge, misunderstanding, and denial accounting for more than 70% of the total non-compliance rate.
  • Non-compliance with treatment is not influenced by gender; however, it depends on the understanding of the patient about the drug administration method. Increase in non-compliance due to lack of knowledge is expected to restrain the global eye valve devices market. This factor is likely to hamper market growth during the forecast period.
