Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India, February 18 2021 (Wiredrelease) Report Ocean Pvt Ltd –:Globally increasing incidence of cataracts resulting from a large aging demographic segment and rising cases of diabetic retinopathy are driving the intraocular lens market. Soaring cases of blindness, the surge in healthcare spending capacity, and the growing number of ophthalmologists are also supporting the market. Moreover, the rise in the geriatric & diabetic population and the Monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) to serve as a low-cost solution for retinal correction are the significant trend in the global market in the coming years.


Driven by these promising developments, the Global Contact and Intraocular Lenses Market is estimated to see healthy growth, pegged at a CAGR of ~5% during the forecast period 2020-2025.

Accommodative IOL demand are leading the global market growth

Accommodative IOLs are used to accommodate well with post-surgical changes compared to conventional monofocal IOLs. These are mainly preferred by patients suffering from macular degeneration, as they support the eye muscles in concentrating on distant and intermediate objects. These lenses have found massive demand in the treatment of astigmatism and presbyopia. Whereas, it is expected that the monofocal intraocular lens will consider the first choice for many, as it can provide the best image quality post-surgery. Thus, they increase its market share percentage in the market. Moreover, the growing eye disorders and increased number of eye surgeries will boost the demand and sales of contact and intraocular lenses in the global market in the coming years.
