Dispersive OVDs with low molecular weight and small molecular chains provide high tissue adherence

The dispersive segment held more than 48% of the total OVD market share in 2019. The low-viscosity dispersive OVDs tend to remain in the eye, adjacent to the corneal endothelium, providing potential protection throughout phacoemulsification.

Dispersive OVDs are used for selective isolation and movement of tissues owing to its low viscosity and the tendency to disperse. Adoption of these OVDs in myopia and other ophthalmic diseases will thus accelerate the market progression. However, growing usage of cohesive OVDs during surgery, for creating and maintaining the space in anterior segment of the eye, will further boost the segmental growth.
