Diminishing visual functions with increasing age is a growing concern among the elderly population base. Prevalence and incidence of blindness, vision impairment and other ophthalmic disorders such as diabetic retinopathy, cataract, macular degeneration and glaucoma is high among aged people as compared to the younger population. Rapidly growing geriatric population base will boost the demand for ophthalmic surgeries thereby, accelerating OVD business growth. However, risks associated with eye surgeries such as irregular astigmatism, epithelial ingrowth and diffuse lamellar keratitis (DLK) may impede OVD market growth in the coming years.
