The global corneal implants market was valued at US$ 18.5 million in 2018, and is expected to expand at healthy CAGR of 13% from 2019 to 2029. Corneal implants have turned out to be promising devices for the correction of decreased near vision in presbyopic people who desire spectacle-independence.

The broad spectrum of treatment approach is available from non-surgical to surgical techniques for the correct management of presbyopia. With recent advances in biocompatible materials, corneal implants make a strong case within the treatment spectrum.

Improved patient outcomes with reducing associated ocular surgical complication are playing a vital role in the growth of the corneal implants market. Moreover, increase in the demand for corneal implants from ophthalmologists and eye surgeons to reduce the risk of post-operative complications is expected to be an important factor surging market growth.

Added Clinical Advantages Fuelling Market Growth

With advancements in biocompatible material, corneal implants are important within the treatment spectrum, and provide additional clinical benefits to presbyopic patients. Several clinical investigations have shown promising results in the correction of presbyopia, with clear and good vision at near, intermediate, and far distances.

High safety profile is documented as compared to other risks associated with ocular surgery, as it does not remove any corneal tissue, and thus, minimizes the risk of ectasia. Moreover, corneal implants are reversible in nature, as they can be explanted if the patient is dissatisfied.

Additionally, corneal inlay procedures can be done simultaneously with other laser refractive surgeries such as LASIK (laser in-situ keratomileusis) and PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) to treat ametropia and presbyopia. They can also be performed on patients who have undergone cataract surgery with intraocular (IOL) implantation.
