Global Intraocular Lens Market: Market Dynamics

The rising prevalence and incidence of ophthalmic and ocular conditions all around the world, from which millions of people are suffering is the main factor driving the growth of the global intraocular lens market. Also, a rising geriatric population is the other growth factor fuelling the global intraocular lens market as aged people are increasingly opting for procedures such as LASIK and cataract surgeries. Besides this, the rising technological advancements in the field of intraocular lenses is also boosting the growth of this market.

Intraocular lenses are categorized into standard IOL and premium IOL, depending upon the various functions being performed by the products, pricing, and other factors. Premium IOL consist of intraocular lenses such as accommodative IOL, aspheric IOL and toric IOL. Such type of lenses are as result of constant product innovation and technological advancements in the intraocular lens segment. Premium IOLs are priced higher than standard IOLs. However, adoption of premium IOLs is constantly increasing owing to factors such as better visual performance, reduced rates of astigmatism, and greater spectacle independence. Increasing awareness about premium IOLs combined with favorable recommendations from healthcare providers, and better acceptance from patients across the world are expected to drive the global intraocular lens market during the assessment period.
