Keratoconus Treatment Market Size, Application, Region and Research Report

Keratoconus treatment Market Overview

Keratoconus is a progressive eye condition in which the cornea, usually round and small, appears cone-like. Keratoconus frequently has to do with light overexposure, constant eye rubbing, improperly fitting contact lenses and chronic eye irritation. Keratoconus care depends on the seriousness of the disease and how easily the condition progresses.

The global keratoconus treatment market is mainly driven by the increasing incidence of keratoconus disorders, increasing ultraviolet and sun exposure and favorable government funding research and prevention programs of ophthalmic disorders. According to the American Journal of Ophthalmology, around 50-200 of every 100,000 people are afflicted with keratoconus. In addition, ultraviolet is regarded as one of the main causes for the development of keratoconus because of its oxidative damage. Thus, a higher prevalence of keratoconus has been identified in Saudi Arabia, Iran, New Zealand, Israel, and some Pacific Islands due to the high ultraviolet exposure.However, lack of awareness and side effects of keratoconus treatment are expected to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.
