Corneal Implants Market Overview

Corneal implants involve surgical procedures that replace or augment damaged or diseased corneas with artificial or prosthetic devices. These implants improve vision and alleviate pain. There are two main types of corneal implants: artificial corneal implants and human corneal implants. The procedures vary, including endothelial keratoplasty, penetrating keratoplasty, and others, addressing conditions such as keratoconus, fuchs dystrophy, infectious keratitis, corneal ulcers, and more. These procedures are conducted in hospitals, ophthalmic centers, and other medical facilities.

Key Market Trends

One of the key trends in the corneal implant market is product innovation. Major companies in the market are focusing on creating innovative products such as biodegradable implants, bioengineered corneal implants, and hybrid corneal implants. For instance, Allergan launched DURYSTA in March 2020, the first FDA-approved intracameral, biodegradable sustained-release implant for lowering intraocular pressure. This innovation offers convenience, improves treatment compliance, and reduces the potential for medication errors.

Recent Acquisitions

In January 2023, Viatris Inc. acquired Oyster Point Pharma and Family Life Sciences for $415 million and $280 million, respectively. This move is expected to strengthen Viatris Inc.’s presence in the eye care industry and address the unmet needs of patients with ophthalmic diseases.
