It is estimated that the market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.43% during the forecast period of 2018–2023 with an estimated market value of 3.54 billion in 2017. Intraocular lens is the type of lens that is implanted inside the eye replacing the eye’s natural lens.

Also, according to the same source, an approximately 8,99,000 Americans are affected by vision-threatening retinopathy.


Factors such as post-operative complications, high cost of intraocular lens, and lack of skilled medical professionals are restraining the growth of market. Also, lack of reimbursement policies for premium lens in many developing and underdeveloped regions is anticipated to hinder the growth of the intraocular market.

For instance, in September 2018, Alcon Inc., a division of Novartis introduced multifocal and multifocal toric ultraviolet intraocular lens with the ultraSert pre-loaded delivery system. The company aims to expand its portfolio of ophthalmic products, thus strengthening its position in the market.
