Track 1:Ophthalmology and Vision Science
The study of ailments relating to the eyes is known as ophthalmology. The doctors that treat this organ surgically and medically are known as ophthalmologists. Ophthalmologists diagnose, treat, and oftentimes even prevent eye conditions and vision impairments. A doctor of ophthalmology may be able to spot symptoms of disorders unrelated to the eyes in addition to providing care for the eyes and eyesight thanks to their medical knowledge. In these situations, they can recommend patients for the right kind of care.
Vision science, an interdisciplinary study of visual systems and perception, includes ophthalmology, optometry, molecular genetics, neurology, and physiological optics. Vision science studies all part of the visual process, including the anatomy, biochemistry, optics, and physiology of the eye. Numerous study topics about how and why eyesight fails in humans, what can be done to prevent it, and how and why it arises in the field of vision science.

The majority of people experience visual issues at some point in their lives. While some of the symptoms are minor and will go away on their own, others are easily treated at home. Others need a professional's assistance. Whether your vision has declined or has never improved, there are steps you can do to restore it. A few of the diseases that can affect the eye include infections of the eye or eyelids, genetically inherited eye conditions, eye injuries or objects in the eye, and vision difficulties brought on by conditions affecting several organs (e.g., diabetes or hypertension)
The lack of early signs in many eye problems makes therapy more difficult, and delayed development of visual defects makes the condition harder to treat.

The anatomy, physiology, histology, and disorders of the eye and its visual system are all covered under the medical discipline of ophthalmology. Our daily lives depend greatly on our ability to see. Clinical ophthalmology is a medical specialty that focuses on the physiology, diseases, and available therapies for the eyes. Clinical ophthalmology treats and diagnoses eye conditions. Many different eye disorders and ailments can be diagnosed using clinical methods. Clinical ophthalmology focuses primarily on the investigation and understanding of a variety of eye disorders as well as the techniques used in ophthalmic patient care. It also covers, among other things, research on ophthalmic surgical techniques, translational research, and ocular medications.
Basic ophthalmology research is done in experimental ophthalmology.

Track 4:Optical Health Care
An ophthalmologist is a medical or osteopathic specialist who focuses in treating eye and vision problems. Ophthalmologists are distinct from optometrists and opticians in terms of their training as well as the conditions they may identify and treat. The field of ophthalmology has both opportunities and challenges in the future. Future ophthalmology clinics will be rewarded for offering effective and high-quality care, therefore they must be ready to assist evolving, integrated healthcare systems. High-quality, effective care includes standardized care processes built on established practice norms and matching the level of therapy to the practitioner's level of experience. Ophthalmology has been fortunate over the years to have visionary leaders who have helped us adapt, thrive, and advance the public's eye health.
These qualities should be beneficial to us in the future.

The coronavirus's global pandemic has had a significant and enduring impact. There is still much to learn about the condition. Conjunctivitis was once believed to be an ocular symptom of SARS-CoV-2 infection due to several anecdotal and published reports of eye redness and irritation in COVID-19 patients. According to recent study, COVID-19 has been connected to uveitis, Retinovascular, and neuro-ophthalmic disease. It has been determined from the results in the patients' eyes that the SAR-CoV-2 virus can also infect unprotected eyes. The COVID-19 medications also have negative effects on the eyes.
Although long-term use of the antimalarial drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine can harm the retina, this is neither anticipated nor observed with COVID-19.

The best solutions to treat their patients more effectively are continually being sought after by ophthalmologists. The creation of diagnostic tools that are more precise and effective is a crucial aspect of this endeavor. The early stages of pars plane vitrectomy, when instrumentation and diagnostic instruments were scarce and the number of entities that could be diagnosed by invasive methods was constrained, saw a tremendous advancement in ophthalmology diagnostic procedures. The use of modern tools has greatly enhanced the treatment of common eye disorders and eye care. As new technologies are developed, the capacity to recognize and address eye issues as well as the general standard of eye care will improve.

The complex process of developing the normal eye, which takes place in the first trimester of pregnancy, is regulated by a number of genes. A significant eye ailment can arise when these genes make errors (known as mutations). Ophthalmic genetics is a vital and quickly developing topic globally. Global genetic illnesses are on the rise as a result of ethnic diversity and high consanguinity rates. Blindness in persons in their working years is most frequently caused by inherited retinal disease (IRD). The introduction of next-generation sequencing methods and concentrated gene panel analysis, among other molecular genetic advancements, have sped up the process of molecular diagnosis. Likewise, advancements in ocular imaging and measures of visual function have improved our comprehension of natural history.
This is crucial for assessing the effectiveness of treatment in studies using possible IRD medications.

Track 8:Ophthalmology Regeneration
Regenerative ophthalmology (RO) is one of the most active subspecialties of regenerative medicine (RM), which is one of the most exciting areas of the discipline. Congenital degenerations and AMD are just a couple of the conditions that cutting-edge medicines are being tested to cure. By using cells, bioactive compounds, and biomaterials to replace or regenerate tissues and organs, regenerative ophthalmology (RO) aims to restore function. These innovative therapeutic approaches could boost the efficacy and efficiency of the treatment of eye diseases. Researchers from RO have concentrated on the regeneration of lost or damaged eye tissues as a new approach to treating vision impairment and blindness brought on by ocular degenerative conditions, trauma, or infection as a result of the progress of tissue engineering technologies.

Track 9:Eye Tumor’s and Ocular Oncology
Eye tumors, also referred to as ocular tumors, are cancers that affect the eyes. Whether malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous), a tumor is a mass of cells that are growing abnormally (noncancerous). The most common kind of eye cancers are metastatic tumors. Ocular oncology is the field that studies and treats malignancies that develop in or around the eyes. These tumors can cause vision loss or even the loss of the eye itself, and they can be benign or life-threatening. A specialty in medicine is ocular care for those who have eye cancer. Certainly, the challenges faced differ from those faced in a typical ophthalmology practice.

Track 10:Vision Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation, which means "being able again," helps patients restore their independence in terms of their physical, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The goal of rehabilitation is not to repair or reverse the causes of the harm, but rather to improve function and independence through adaptation. Vision rehabilitation is a type of medical rehabilitation intended to enhance vision or low vision (also known as vision rehab). In other words, it is the process of improving quality of life and independence for someone who has lost their vision due to illness or injury while restoring functional competence. Optometrists can assist their patients in regaining function, independence, and overall health by providing low vision rehabilitation.

The practice of optometry involves examining the eyes and other visual systems for flaws or anomalies, prescription glasses or contact lenses to correct refractive faults, and treating various eye conditions. Optometrists are eye doctors with a focus on routine eye care.
The retina, optic disc, choroid, and blood vessels in the back of the eye are all examined during an ophthalmoscopy technique (fundus). Fundus copy is another name for it. It might be carried out during an eye checkup or as part of a routine physical examination. For assessing the health of the retina, optic disc, and vitreous humor, it is essential.
Ophthalmic pathology is a lab-based science that evaluates samples taken from patients and offers ophthalmologists and other healthcare professionals a diagnosis. For a precise diagnosis, ophthalmic pathologists analyses tissues that have been removed by ophthalmologists. Both a dark and a bright microscope are used to examine the diseased tissue.

Ocular hypertension is a condition when the internal pressure of the eye is elevated above normal. Ocular hypertension can strike anyone at any age, but it strikes African Americans, people over 40, and people with a family history of the condition more frequently. People with diabetes or people who are very nearsighted are also more likely to experience it.
The term "ocular migraine" has been used to characterize a variety of migraine subtypes that are distinguished by aberrant visual symptoms include sight loss, blind spots, zigzag lines, or seeing stars. Unlike other types of migraine, they can happen without any accompanying headache.
The capacity to view items around you without having to move your eyes or turn your head is known as peripheral vision, also referred to as side vision. It also helps with controlling your environment without running into anything and detecting motion around you.

Track 13:Eye surgery
Ophthalmologists perform surgery on the eye or its adnexa, which is known as eye surgery or ocular surgery. Because the eye is such a delicate organ, particular care must be taken to prevent or minimize future damage before, during, and after surgery. A qualified eye surgeon is in charge of selecting the most appropriate surgical technique for the patient and making sure that all required safety precautions are implemented. The eye has a dense network of nerves, thus anesthesia is necessary. Local anesthetic is the kind of anesthesia that is most frequently used. Eye surgery can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including glaucoma, cataracts, detached retinas, retinal tears, diabetic retinopathy, nearsightedness, and farsightedness.

Track 14:Ophthalmic Care
Primary eye care (PEC) is a broad phrase that refers to using primary healthcare to prevent potentially blinding eye conditions (PHC). PEC includes identifying individuals with preventable causes of blindness as well as the diagnosis and treatment of prevalent eye diseases, particularly those that result in an acute red eye. In every community and region of the world, primary eye care is an essential part in preventing blindness. Without basic eye care, only patients who visit secondary and tertiary clinics will receive a diagnosis and treatment, and little will be done to avoid the condition.
Acute care is required when a patient has a temporary but serious disease, accident, or other eye health issue. Ailments like trachoma, glaucoma, and cataract are treated on a secondary level, in places like hospitals.

It is simpler to carry out daily tasks if you have good vision. However, vision issues are a common problem. Neuro-ophthalmology is a subspecialty of both neurology and ophthalmology. Eye specialists known as neuro ophthalmologists are experts in neurologically-related vision problems. A physician with particular expertise in the identification and management of neurological and systemic conditions that affect vision and eye movement is known as a neuro-ophthalmologist. Neuro-ophthalmologists have detected a number of illnesses, some of which are not life threatening, while others may worsen and result in irreparable vision loss or even death. The issue might only affect the optic nerve or nervous system, or it might be connected to a more widespread medical condition.

Pediatric ophthalmology is an intriguing discipline, yet at times it can be upsetting owing to the challenges of evaluating a child. Kid ophthalmologists have more knowledge and expertise diagnosing and treating common pediatric eye problems, even though all ophthalmologists have some training in pediatric eye conditions. Pediatric ophthalmologists are specialists in examining, identifying, and treating eye conditions in newborns, kids, and teenagers. Due to the fact that they perform eye procedures on children, pediatric ophthalmologists are both surgical and medical specialists.
In the case of strabismus, neither eye aligns in the same direction. They aren't staring at the same object at the same moment as a result. The most common kind of strabismus is "crossed eyes." There may be occasional occurrences of the ailment or it may be constant. If it persists throughout a child's formative years, it may result in amblyopia (lazy eyes) and a loss of depth perception.

Your eyes change as you get older. Even if some problems become more pervasive as you age, they can affect anyone at any age. Presbyopia is a condition where, as one ages, the lens of the eye becomes less flexible and less able to thicken, which reduces its ability to concentrate on nearby objects. The conjunctiva's mucous cell count may decrease with ageing. As people age, their ability to produce tears may decrease, leaving them less available to keep the eye's surface moist. Both of these alterations contribute to the higher prevalence of dry eyes in elderly persons.

An ophthalmologist is a doctor who focuses on the early detection, evaluation, and treatment of eye conditions. Only when the results will directly affect the patient's care are diagnostic tests frequently ordered. The study and treatment of eye conditions are the focus of the medical specialty known as experimental ophthalmology. It is the laboratory research of vision issues, eye conditions, and the use of medicinal, surgical, and optical interventions. Finding both infectious and noninfectious causes requires diagnostic testing.

Patient education is the process of giving patients and their careers information that will enable them to alter their lifestyle choices or enhance their health. To encourage patient education and engagement, doctors must raise patients' health literacy. Health literacy is the capacity to find, comprehend, and act on health information. In order to produce a therapeutic result, adhesion is described as the patient's "active, voluntary, and collaborative engagement in a mutually acceptable course of activity." The idea of adherence includes both mutuality and choice in the creation of goals, treatment planning, and regimen delivery.
Artificial intelligence is the fourth industrial revolution in human history (AI). Recent years have seen a significant increase in interest in deep learning (DL), a family of cutting-edge machine learning techniques. The AI industry has undergone a complete transformation because to the groundbreaking DL AI machine learning technology. In ophthalmology, DL has shown clinically acceptable diagnostic performance in identifying a number of retinal diseases. Future research will be required to evaluate the cost-effectiveness and clinical deployment of various DL systems in clinical practice. The "black-box" component of DL must be explained using both current and emerging methods in order to boost clinical acceptance of DL systems.

Track 21:Ophthalmology and Nanotechnology
The frontier of science and technology, nanotechnology is a relatively new idea. It penetrates using nanometer-sized molecules and has proven useful in space exploration, medical research, and other scientific disciplines. The eye is a perfect target for nanotechnology because it is a tiny organ that is accessible due to its exposed placement. According to some sources, "the discovery of nanomedicines has reawakened tremendous aspirations for ocular pharmacotherapy, in which nanostructured pharmaceuticals are projected to pass through the eye's limiting barriers." Adoption of nanotechnology is still hampered by concerns about safe production practices and unanticipated biological effects of nanomaterial use. These obstacles are not insurmountable, and this emerging industry is likely to produce ground-breaking therapies for ocular illnesses.

Ophthalmic Drugs Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2022 - 2027)
The ophthalmic drugs market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period (2022 - 2027).
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted not only the research and development of treatments and medications for illnesses other than COVID-19 but also the global supply chain for drugs and medical products, which had an effect on the market for ophthalmic drugs. For instance, according to an article published by the Public Library of Science in March 2022, titled “COVID-19 pandemic decreased the ophthalmic outpatient numbers and altered the diagnosis distribution in a community hospital in Taiwan: An observational study”, it has been observed that the number of ophthalmic outpatient during the COVID-19 pandemic reduced by 46.9%. In addition, as per the same source, the most significant drop in several ophthalmic outpatients was observed in June with a 60.1% decrease, followed by July (43.3%) and May (38.3%). Also, as per the same source, cataracts (68.2%), refraction and accommodation (55.9%), and macular degeneration (51%) were the top three most frequent diagnoses that had a decline in frequency over the COVID-19 pandemic period. Similarly, according to the research study published by Clinical Ophthalmology, in November 2021, titled “The Impact of Covid-19 in the Follow-Up of Glaucoma Patients in a Tertiary Center: A Comparison Between Pre-Pandemic and Pandemic Periods”, the comparison of the pre-pandemic and pandemic periods data, it was observed that a total number of outpatients clinical visits, visual field exams, surgical procedures and medications released decreased 92.52%, 93.84%, 72.74%, and 19.63%, respectively which shows a significant decrease in the diagnosis and treatment of people with glaucoma during the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the resumed treatment and diagnosis services and increased hospital visits are expected to increase the demand for ophthalmic drugs, thereby boosting the market growth. The studied market is expected to return to its full potential in time.
Certain factors propelling the market growth include increasing incidences and prevalence of eye-related disorders, rising research and development about the development of novel drugs, and increasing focus on developing combination therapies.
The rising burden of eye-related disorders such as glaucoma, dry eye disease, and other eye-related disorders are the main factor driving the market growth. For instance, according to an article published by Frontiers in Medicine, in December 2021, titled “Estimated Annual Economic Burden of Dry Eye Disease Based on a Multi-Center Analysis in China: A Retrospective Study”, it has been observed that dry eye disease has become the fifth most prevalent ocular condition among women and ninth most prevalent among men in the United States. Additionally, a survey published by the American Journal of Ophthalmology in August 2020, titled “Patient-Reported Burden of Dry Eye Disease in the United States: Results of an Online Cross-Sectional Survey,” reported that DED prevalence ranges from 5% to 15% and increases with age in the United States. Thus, the burden of dry eye diseases is anticipated to drive the studied market growth in the country. Further, according to the October 2021 report of the World Health Organization, about 2.2 billion people around the world have near or distance vision impairment, of which approximately 1 billion cases of vision impairment can be prevented or could have been prevented in 2020. Thus, the high burden of the cases of vision impairment around the world increases the demand for effective treatment and drugs, which is expected to increase the demand for ophthalmic drugs, thereby boosting the market growth.
Moreover, the increasing focus of companies on research and development activities and rising adoption of various business strategies such as mergers and acquisitions, collaborations, and partnerships are further expected to boost growth in the studied market. For instance, in May 2022, Alcon signed an agreement to acquire EYSUVIS (loteprednol etabonate suspension) 0.25% pharmaceutical eye drops from Kala Pharmaceuticals, Inc. This acquisition will enhance Alcon’s current offering in the large and currently growing dry eye segment. Additionally, In January 2022, Sun Pharma Canada Inc. launched Cequa (cyclosporine ophthalmic solution 0.09 percent w/v), a calcineurin inhibitor immunomodulator, to treat dry eye disease in Canada. The ophthalmic solution is delivered with nanomicellar (NCELL) technology, which improves cyclosporine’s bioavailability and physicochemical stability to increase ocular tissue penetration.
However, the loss of patent protection for popular drugs in treating eye disorders and the lack of health insurance in developing countries are expected to restrain the growth of the ophthalmic drugs market over the forecast period.
Key Market TrendsThe Anti-glaucoma Drug Segment under Drug Class is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Ophthalmic Drugs Market During the Forecast Period
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that affect the optic nerve, which is essential for proper vision; excessively high pressure in the eye is often the cause of this group of diseases.
The anti-glaucoma drug segment is expected to witness significant growth in the ophthalmic drugs market over the forecast period owing to the factors such as the increasing prevalence of glaucoma coupled with a rising geriatric population who are more prone to develop glaucoma, which is one of the leading cause of blindness in older adults.
The prevalence of glaucoma is increasing rapidly, which is expected to increase the demand for anti-glaucoma drugs around the world, thus boosting high growth in the segment. For instance, according to the June 2021 report of the BrightFocus Foundation, it has been observed that the most prevalent type of glaucoma, open-angle glaucoma, affects 2.7 million people aged 40 years or above in the United States. Additionally, as per the same source, glaucoma affected over 80 million individuals worldwide in 2020, which is projected to rise to over 111 million by 2040. Thus, with the increasing burden of glaucoma among the population, the demand for anti-glaucoma drugs is expected to increase, further fueling market growth. Also, according to the World Population Ageing Highlight 2020 report published by the United Nations, the global geriatric population is increasing rapidly around the world, and in 2020, about 727 million people of age 65 years or more were living across the world, which was about 9.3% of the total global population. As per the same source, this number is projected to rise to about 1.5 billion people by 2050, accounting for 16% of the global population. Thus, the increasing aging population will significantly impact the studied segment’s growth over the years and is expected to drive the growth in the ophthalmic drugs market.
Similarly, according to the research study published by Cureus, in November 2020, titled “Epidemiology of Glaucoma: The Past, Present, and Predictions for the Future”, it has been observed that Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness after cataracts. It develops due to a combination of vascular, genetic, anatomical, and immunological factors and is considered a serious health problem since it can result in irreversible blindness. As per the same study, it was estimated that approximately 57.5 million people around the world were affected by primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and 76 million people were suffering from glaucoma in 2020. In addition, this number is projected to reach 111.8 million by 2040. Thus, the increasing number of glaucoma cases in the population is expected to increase the demand for effective anti-glaucoma drugs, which is further expected to increase the market growth over the forecast period.
In addition, with the growing burden of glaucoma, the companies are increasing their focus on developing novel drugs and products for treating patients with glaucoma, which is expected to increase the product launches, thereby propelling the market growth. For instance, in February 2021, Santen Pharmaceutical Korea Co., Ltd. launched glaucoma and ocular hypertension treatment, the EYBELIS Ophthalmic Solution 0.002%, in South Korea after listing in Korea’s national health insurance. Santen Pharmaceutical and Ube Industries, Ltd have filed for the ophthalmic solution’s marketing approval in other Asian countries. Also, in September 2020, Micro Labs USA launched two products, Dorzolamide 2% and Dorzolamide-Timolol 22.3-6.8 mg/mL, for the treatment of glaucoma in the United States.
Therefore, due to the above-mentioned factors, the anti-glaucoma drugs segment is expected to hold a significant market share in the studied market.
Asia-Pacific Region is Expected to be Fast Growing Market in the Ophthalmic Drugs Market During the Forecast Period
Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the ophthalmic drugs market owing to the factors such as the increasing geriatric population, rising prevalence of eye-related disorders, and the presence of key players in the region. For instance, according to the 2021 report of the United Nations Population Fund (UNPF), 4.3 billion people live in the Asia-pacific region, accounting for 60% of the world's population. In addition, as per the same source, the region has the highest prevalence of eye disorders which is a major driver in the expansion of the ophthalmic drugs market in the Asia-Pacific region. Additionally, according to a research study published by Frontiers in Medicine in July 2021, titled "Prevalence of primary open-angle glaucoma in the last 20 years: a meta-analysis and systematic review", the global population with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) was estimated to be over 68.56 million in 2020, with Asia accounting for approximately 53% of them. In addition, this number is projected to rise to about 78.34 million by 2030. Thus, the increasing burden of eye-related disorders is expected to increase the demand for ophthalmic drugs, thereby boosting the market growth.
Further, the rising geriatric population in the region and other risk factors such as hypertension and diabetes are expected to increase the burden of eye disorders, which is expected to positively impact the growth of the studied market in the Asia-Pacific region. For instance, according to a 2021 report from the United Nations Population Fund (UNPF), the number of elderly people in Asia-Pacific is expected to more than quadruple by 2050, rising from 630 million in 2020 to over 1.3 billion.
Moreover, the increasing product and drug launches and the rising focus of the companies in research and development activities are further expected to boost the studied market in the region. For instance, in September 2021, the Center for Drug Evaluation, China National Medical Products Administration, approved Arctic Vision's Investigational New Drug (IND) application for a Phase III study of ARVN003 (pilocarpine microdose ophthalmic solution) for the treatment of presbyopia (CDE, NMPA).
Therefore, due to the above-mentioned factors, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to occupy a significant share in the studied market over the forecast period of the study.
The market studied comprises a combination of both small and large firms and is fairly competitive. Most big companies focus on research and development to bring innovative products to the market. Some of the major players in the ophthalmic drugs market are Aerie Pharmaceuticals Inc., AbbVie (Allergan), Bausch Health, Bayer AG, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, Hoya Corporation, Novartis AG, Pfizer Inc., and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.
