Global Intraocular Lens Market Trends:
The market is majorly driven by the growing geriatric population on the global level. With the rising incidences of cataracts among the elderly and diabetic patients, there has been a considerable rise in the demand for intraocular lenses. This is supported by the numerous initiatives undertaken by the government of several countries to spread awareness regarding avoidable blindness. Additionally, they are setting up free-of-cost camps for eye examinations and surgeries while offering health reimbursements, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by the introduction of premium intraocular lenses, such as multifocal, toric, and accommodative, that offer higher precision, multifocal aperture and improved visualization to the patients. Several players are also investing in research and development (R&D) activities to launch product variants that are anticipated to help patients with near and distant vision. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the increasing healthcare spending capacity and the growing cases of pediatric cataract cases.
