Intraocular Lens Market to Gain from Improving Reimbursement Scenario

Intraocular lens are medical devices that are implanted within the eyes so as to mimic the function of natural eye lenses. Intraocular Lens are used for corrective purposes. Market Research Future (MRFR) has launched a new report on the global Intraocular Lens Market and has projected a CAGR of 5.43% over the forecast period of 2018-2023. The intraocular lens market was valued at USD 3.54 Bn in 2017.

The growth of the intraocular lens market is stemmed from rising occurrence of various ophthalmic disorders such as astigmatism, presbyopia, near-sightedness (myopia), and others. Cataract being the most common eye disorder also generates the need for corrective surgery, which boost the demand for the product. Consumers are increasingly adopting advanced intraocular lens technology to eliminate the need for glasses. Rise in geriatric and diabetic population is also a key factor enhancing the growth of the market. Diabetic and elderly people are generally prone to cataract and other ophthalmic issues. Other factors favoring the growth of the market include rise in the level of awareness and improving reimbursement scenario.

On the other hand, the market growth might be hindered by high cost of intraocular lens, lack of proper reimbursement, and dearth of skilled medical professionals.
