Vision Care Devices Market Dynamics

The major factors driving the global vision care devices market are the rising demand for vision care devices owing to increasing incidences of ophthalmic disorders such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataract, technological advancements and novel product launches.

The increasing awareness initiatives and rising novel technologically advanced vision care devices are expected to drive the market’s growth.

The vision care devices market is driven by rising advancements in technology, an increase in the geriatric population, a surge in research and development investments, an increasing number of ophthalmic disorders such as glaucoma, cataract, AMD and improvements in novel products using the latest technology along with improvements in medical infrastructure in emerging markets. 

The vision care devices are used for delivering drugs and aesthetic purposes. The adoption of these devices is increasing, leading to rising government initiatives and funds. These funds will help produce vision care devices products such as intraocular lenses, ophthalmic laser or glaucoma drainage devices. The market for these applications is increasing worldwide due to the enhanced number of these ophthalmic disorders. Moreover, the availability of technologically advanced products by key players is also expected to play a vital role in the market’s growth.

Various novel product launches, research studies, and rising awareness initiatives related to these vision care devices contribute to the market’s growth. For instance, in August 2022, STAAR Surgical Company, a designer and provider of implantable lenses and delivery systems, announced its new partnership with Joe Jonas, an actor and singer, to create awareness of its latest implantable Collamer lenses, EVO Visian, an FDA-approved lens for vision correction developed for astigmatism and myopia correction.

Product recalls and stringent regulations associated with the approval of vision care devices are expected to hamper the market’s growth.

Strict rules and regulations for the approval of several devices utilized for vision care is the major factor hindering the growth of the vision care devices market. Various requirements must be fulfilled, leading to an increase in the overall cost of these implants. The high cost and risks involved due to the sensitivity of the organ in the product are likely to hinder the growth.

Market recalls are also a leading factor restraining the growth of the market. Several recalls are taking place due to leakage or complications. For instance, in October 2022, Roche recalled its implant Susvimo due to a manufacturing-related issue. Susvimo is an approved implant that delivers ranibizumab into the eye of people with wet age-related macular degeneration. The septum or seal of the delivery device has some manufacturing issues and cannot keep the medicine from leaking out.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis on Vision Care Devices Market

The pandemic has negatively impacted global financial expectations, operations and crisis response strategy. The COVID-19 outbreak has severely impacted the healthcare industry. The Vision Care Devices market has experienced huge losses due to COVID. Key manufacturers have started various research and clinical trials. Various initiatives, product launches, collaborations and mergers are happening worldwide, boosting the market’s growth. For instance, in July 2020, STAAR Surgical Company, a designer and provider of implantable lenses and delivery systems, announced its novel, innovative implantable Collamer lens, EVO Viva/ EVO Visian ICL, for presbyopia correction, received CE Mark.

Vision Care Devices Market Segment Analysis

The Intraocular lenses segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)

The intraocular lenses segment is the highest market holder in the global vision care devices market. The global vision care devices market is segmented based on product type as intraocular lenses, eye-glasses, contact lenses, glaucoma drainage devices, ophthalmic lasers, over-the-counter eye care/ supplements and others. The intraocular lenses segment is the largest market shareholder due to its inherent advantages over other implants or devices, increasing technological advancements and novel product launches.

Intraocular lenses are artificial lenses implanted into the eye for myopia or cataract treatment purposes. It replaces the natural lens of the eye removed during the surgery and restores distant or near vision. These lenses are of various types: accommodating, mono-focal, multifocal, and toric. One of the leading causes of blindness is cataracts which can be treated with the help of these implants through surgery.

The growing number of regulatory approvals, technological advancements, product launches, and research/clinical trial studies drive the market’s growth. For instance, in September 2022, Johnson and Johnson Vision, part of Johnson and Johnson Medtech and an eye health company, introduced their novel intraocular lens powered by InteliLight technology and TECNIS symphony OptiBlue intraocular lens for correcting presbyopia. This lens with depth of focus joins the hybrid lens, TECNIS synergy intraocular lens, for spectacle independence in the InteliLight portfolio. This corrects presbyopia in more patients. These deliver low-light performance and superior contrast in this intraocular lens category.
