The OVD market is expected to grow slightly throughout the forecast period. Demand for OVDs will be driven by the aging population and the associated need for refractive correction among this demographic. OVD use is directly correlated with IOL sales. In general, growth of the IOL market is driven by the increasing prevalence of cataracts, a condition that is associated with older age. Since standard monofocal IOLs are covered by most government health insurance overall IOL insertion rates do not depend on economic stability. Because of this, procedure rates should remain constant as should OVD use.
Ophthalmic viscosurgical devices (OVD) are viscoelastic solutions used in several eye surgeries. They are also referred to as viscoelastic agents. These fluids have had a great influence on both extracapsular and phacoemulsification surgeries and their use has decreased the incidence of corneal edema. The main task of the OVD is protecting the inner side of the cornea during surgery. It accomplishes this by maintaining a deep anterior chamber during anterior segment surgery.
