Pages: 0 Published: June 09, 2023 Report Code: GDME720MM

Intraocular Lens (IOL) Market Report Overview

The intraocular lens (IOL) market was valued at $4.27 billion in 2022. The intraocular lens is an artificial lens used in vision correction procedures such as cataracts to replace the cloudy or defective natural eye lens. Vision impairment severely impacts the quality of life among adult populations resulting in lower rates of workforce participation and productivity. Vision restoration and rehabilitation are very effective in improving functioning for people with an irreversible vision impairment that can be caused by eye conditions such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, consequences of trauma, and age-related macular degeneration. Thus, with the rise in the number of eye surgeries, the use of IOLs is likely to surge considerably during the projected period.
