Corneal Surgery Devices Market is Growing at a Healthy CAGR of 5.2% During Forecast to 2023

Market Analysis:

The global corneal surgery devices market is eyeing for a prodigious growth at a promising 5.2% CAGR over the predicted years (2017-2023). Corneal surgery simply put, is a surgical process where an infected or damaged cornea is treated through corneal tissue transplantation. These transplantations are of two types- lamellar keratoplasty and penetrating keratoplasty. A damaged or unhealthy cornea will affect the vision by distorting or scattering light and resulting in blurred and glare vision. Some of the common causes of damaged cornea include infections namely graft rejection, edema of the cornea, damage from eye injuries, chemical burns of cornea, complications resulting from LASIK surgery, advanced keratoconus, Fuchs’ dystrophy, trichiasis, fungal keratitis or eye herpes. Corneal eye disease is the fourth common cause causing blindness after age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts.
