Global Artificial Eye Market 2019-2023

About this market

The psychological well-being of individuals can be affected by ophthalmic defects or injuries caused due to trauma, ophthalmology diseases, retinal cancer, and individuals with moderately shrunken eyeballs or children with anophthalmos or microphthalmos. Hence, companies are focusing on developing custom-made prosthetic eyes that improve the confidence and improves the psychological wellness of patients. Therefore, the increasing demand for custom-made ocular prosthetics is boosting the overall growth of the artificial eye market. Technavio ‘s analysts predict the artificial eye market to grow at a CAGR of close to 8% by 2023.

Market Overview

Increase the prevalence of ophthalmic diseases

Over the years, the prevalence of ophthalmic diseases has been increasing, which is driving the demand for ocular prosthesis across the world. The incidence of severe injuries, congenital eye diseases, and other severe eye diseases that result in loss of eyes are increasing the demand for artificial eyes, which ultimately drives the global market.

High device and implantation cost

Artificial eyes and implantation procedures are expensive. The high cost of artificial eyes makes it expensive for end-users without insurance coverage. In fact, some medical insurance plans do not cover the entire cost of prosthetic eye implantations. This is expected to be a major challenge for the global artificial eye market.
