Glaucoma Treatment Market Analysis

The major factors for the growth of the glaucoma treatment market include the increasing prevalence of glaucoma, rising initiatives to increase awareness about glaucoma, and technological advancements in the field of ophthalmology. 

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness, globally. This generally happens due to raised intraocular tension. The main therapeutic goal is to lower the intraocular tension. This is done either by reducing the secretion of aqueous humor or increasing its drainage. Glaucoma has also been divided into an open angle (wide angle), chronic glaucoma and angle-closure (narrow-angle), and acute congestive glaucoma. Although the drugs of glaucoma reduce the symptoms, there is no complete cure for this condition. The drugs used for the treatment of glaucoma are segmented into beta-blockers, alpha-adrenergic agonists, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, prostaglandin analogs, and combination medications. 

According to WHO estimates, more than 60 million patients are suffering from glaucoma worldwide, as per 2019 statistics. According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, in the United States, more than 120,000 patients are blind from glaucoma. Thus, owing to the rising cases of glaucoma the market is expected to witness high growth over the forecast period.
