A key factor driving the growth of the market is the increasing prevalence of ophthalmic diseases. The incidences of ophthalmology diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, and corneal scarring are increasing considerably. These diseases require diagnosis, and in some cases, patients may have to undergo surgical procedures using ocular implants. Cataract surgery is among the most frequently performed surgical procedures in various developed and developing countries. Hence the demand for IOLs used in cataract surgery is expected to surge in the next four years.

Global ocular implants market: Custom-made ocular prostheses
Ocular defects caused due to causes such as trauma, surgery, cancer, and anophthalmos or microphthalmos negatively impact the psychological well being of an individual and act as a social stigma. Customized ocular prosthesis, in such cases, can help improve the psychological well being and restore confidence. An ocular prosthesis acts as an artificial substitute for an enucleated eyeball. The prosthesis can be prefabricated or customized.
“A custom-made prosthesis is recommended for patients with facial disfigurement due to shrunken eyeballs caused by ocular tissue damage. Some of the advantages of custom-made ocular prosthesis include good fit, enhanced esthetics, accurate sclera contour, accurate positioning, and proper eyelid fullness,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on orthopedics and medical devices.
