Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices Market: Overview

Ophthalmic viscoelastic devices or OVDs are primarily used by ophthalmologists to perform different eye surgeries such as glaucoma or cataract surgery. These devices help in protecting the fragile ocular structure along with generating proper pressure in the anterior chamber. These devices also help in creating precise compartmentalization of the eye during surgery, which ultimately results in faster and safer surgery. This also helps in swift recovery of the patients. The ophthalmologists use different types of ophthalmic devices as per their requirement. Thus, ophthalmic viscoelastic devices play a major role in the treating wide range of eye ailments or disorders during the surgery across the world.
