Phakic Intraocular Lenses Market is expected to reach US$ 819.5 Million by 2032

As per Future Market Insights’ latest analysis, the global phakic intraocular lenses (IOL) market reached US$ 344.4 Million in 2021. Sales are projected to grow at a 9.5% CAGR over the forecast period, with the market valuation reaching US$ 819.5 Million in 2032.

Patients with high ametropia or contraindications to laser refractive surgery are treated with phakic intraocular lenses (pIOLs). The key aspect that makes these lenses ideal for use in young adults seeking ocular prescription independence is the preservation of accommodation, as lens extraction is not required.

Furthermore, as the number of people who are myopic has increased in recent years, this refractive correction option has become increasingly significant. Simultaneously, it is an important area of research in light of future estimates of the prevalence of simple myopia and, more importantly, severe myopia.

Although phakic intraocular lenses have some benefits over laser refractive surgery, such as reversibility, enhanced optical quality in high ametropias, and a wider range of correction, etc., it is important to remember that it is a surgical procedure with all of the risks that are associated with intraocular surgeries, including severe complications including endophthalmitis.

“Advances in excimer laser procedures have presented a gateway into the development of implantable intraocular lenses with effective vision correction outcomes. Such developments are anticipated to auger well for the market over the forecast period,” says an FMI analyst.

Competition Landscape

Key players are investing in research and development to offer patient-specific and indication-specific pIOLs to enhance procedural outcomes. They are also focusing on new product launch activities, licensing of product sales within a specific region, as well as regulations associated with new device development and manufacturing. For instance:
