The information represented in this report is a comprehensive analysis of the eye care
market globally with a special focus on the United States and selected international sectors.
The year ending December 31, 2008 was used as the base year with forecasts to the year
2013. Market statistics are given in U.S. dollars and in units [where appropriate]. Basis for
the market analysis consists of key data, statistics; references, and information from a large
data base of primary and secondary research sources documented in the report consisting of
interviews, professional meetings; conferences; presentations; journals; consumer media
[radio, TV, magazines, newspapers]; and Internet content involving more than 40,000
sources. Data were collected for global populations and medical providers who represent the
key influences in the eye care market.

The market analysis is comprised of two major sectors:

  • refractive vision correction
    [addressing myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism]
  • and major eye diseases
    [addressing cataracts, glaucoma, AMD, retinal disorders].
Within the primary sectors the
analysis includes the top RVC treatment modalities [traditional and advanced laser systems;
RVC lens implants, and alternative surgical implants] and surgical intervention for each of
the major diseases [retinal laser surgery, photo dynamic therapy, pneumatic thermoplasticy,
capsulectomy, and trabeculectomy]. Competitive market shares are given for the key
manufacturers of RVC treatment methodologies and for major devices and ophthalmic
therapeutics employed in the management of eye diseases.

New technologies and treatment modalities for both visual acuity and major eye diseases may dramatically change the composition and competitive dynamics of the ophthalmology market. This report explores these dynamics and discoveries along with their profound impact on clinical eye care and the competitive positions of the market supplier. Also examined are traditional [conventional] approaches, the role of medical skills and techniques developed and cultivated over past years, and the importance of supporting increasingly global demand to correct vision deficiencies.

Other competitive technologies presented herein under the heading of refractive vision correction [RVC] include:

  • Integrated [diagnostic] laser surgery
  • RF conductive keratoplasty
  • Earlier versions of corrective laser systems.
This segment also includes RVC breakthrough technologies such as
  • Imaging topography
  • Accommodating implants
  • Special vision lens
  • Vision restoration systems and
  • Other evolving technologies
Vision abnormalities [restoration of impaired vision] presented and investigated are confined to following four primary conditions:
  • Myopia [nearsightedness]—leading eye disorder affecting all age groups
  • Hyperopia [farsightedness]—second leading eye disorder affecting all age groups
  • Presbyopia [near focus abnormality]—phenomenon of aging, mostly 40 + year olds
  • Astigmatism [cornea irregularities, eye globe distortion]—affects all age groups
The range of therapeutic modalities mentioned above offers multiple options in treating one or more of the four primary diseases. While some modalities like ophthalmic pharmaceuticals are used to treat one disease, other medical devices like lasers and implants [Refocus Group’s PresView SRP—Scleral Lens Spacers] are more flexible and used in multiple applications for disease-specific procedures.

The market described herein is also positioning itself to resolve its most compelling
problems effecting older populations—the alarming increase in loss of vision worldwide
resulting from diseases, aging, and declining health conditions. The race is underway to
develop and exploit cutting-edge technologies [diagnostics, imaging, therapeutics, devices]
that will address the growing threat of deteriorating vision and blindness caused by the most
serious eye diseases, including:

  • Cataracts—surgery & replacement intra ocular lens [IOL] and accommodating
    lens,
  • Glaucoma/Ocular Hypertension—chronic opened-angle and acute closedangle
    • Age-Related Macular Degeneration [AMD]—both wet and dry, and
  • Retinal Disorders—diabetic retinopathy, diabetic edema, detached retina.
While technological innovations continue to play a crucial role in slowing [or stopping]
the progress of vision loss through laser surgery and other medical and therapeutic
intervention, early diagnosis of these diseases and knowledge of available treatment options
is equally crucial to prevent the progression and further deterioration of vision. However, the
availability of technologies, medical disciplines, and skills to take advantage of the gains
made in managing eye diseases has yet to realize its full competitive and market potential. And many players entering this field will find this report a useful resource.
