Interventional Ophthalmic Devices Market Report Suite | United States | 2017-2023 | MedSuite (Includes 7 Reports)
The full report suite on the U.S. market for interventional ophthalmic devices includes disease rates, ophthalmic lasers, intraocular lenses (IOLs), phacoemulsification consoles, ophthalmic viscosurgical devices (OVDs) and glaucoma shunts. Currently the U.S. market for interventional ophthalmic devices is being limited by high prices. High prices for the capital equipment in this market are passed on to the consumer as much of the interventional market is based upon elective surgeries. While many are willing to pay for premiums to undergo corrective surgery others will seek out alternative solutions or decide to live with their vision issues.

A major driver for this market is corrective eye surgery. Corrective surgeries are responsible for a large portion of market growth. These surgeries directly drive the intraocular lens (IOL), ophthalmic viscoelastic device (OVD), and ophthalmic laser markets. Because this is such a large market, corrective surgeries are also a driving force for the development and sale of other diagnostic and surgical equipment such as phacoemulsification consoles, corneal topographers and optical biometers all of which are used in either diagnosis of refractive conditions or surgery preparation. A major trend in the ophthalmic market is the consolidation of multiple pieces of equipment into singular devices. This is being driven by a desire to increase space and cost effectiveness of devices for ophthalmologists. While for the manufacturer this ensures that instead of a buyer buying one device from them and another from a different company they are paying for one more expensive device that covers all. This is clearly being seen in the ophthalmic laser market where we are seeing devices sold with multiple laser types or diagnostic imaging equipment attached to them.
