The global intraocular pressure devices market is expected to reach USD 2.8 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 83.9%. An imbalance in the production and / or drainage of aqueous humor within the eye is known to lead to an increase in intraocular pressure (IOP). Acutely elevated IOP, a condition broadly known as ocular hypertension, may either lead to the expulsion of ocular contents through a traumatic opening or result in a number of clinical conditions / disorders including glaucoma. Currently available treatment options include ocular hypotensive medications, laser therapy and surgical interventions. However, these treatment modalities are known to be associated with a number of complications and adverse events. Amongst these, poor adherence rates are a major concern in patients who are on ocular hypotensive medications; an estimated 50% of patients do not adhere to the therapeutic regimen prescribed to them. Laser therapies are known to lose their efficacy over time. It has been observed that the disease is controlled only in around 50% of patients who have been treated with some form of laser therapy; the effect usually wears off after a period of five years. Traditional surgical procedures, such as filtration procedures, glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs) and cyclodestructive procedures, are also known to have various risks and complications associated with them. Therefore, in the current scenario, multiple challenges exist as far as the treatment of elevated IOP is concerned.
A better understanding of the complex pathways involved in aqueous humor dynamics has resulted in the identification of many novel targets for maintaining ocular homeostasis. These novel targets have led to the development of a number of innovative therapeutic options for lowering elevated IOP. Specifically, to address poor patient compliance, a number of players are developing sustained release devices (implants, punctal plugs or contact lenses) so that the patient is not required to self-medicate on a regular basis. Similarly, the landscape of surgical interventions is also witnessing a lot of change with the emergence of safer, reproducible and less invasive treatment options. These novel surgical interventions include minimally-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), blebless ab externo glaucoma surgery (BAGS), ab externo bleb surgery (ABS), minimally invasive micro sclerostomy (MIMS), non-penetrating glaucoma surgery (NPGS) and non-invasive glaucoma procedure (NIGP).
