Corneal Transplant Market Outlook - 2027

Corneal transplant surgery is referred as the surgical procedure performed with the objective of replacing the part of patients’ cornea with corneal tissue from a donor. Actually, cornea is transparent, dome shaped surface of the eye. Its where the light enters the eye, and is a large part of the eye used to view clearly. This procedure has the ability to restore vision, reduce pain, and improve the appearance of the damaged or diseased cornea. Several incidences like bulging out of the cornea (keratoconus), Fuchs’ dystrophy (a hereditary condition), thinning and tearing of the cornea, cornea scarring, caused by infection or injury, swelling of the cornea, corneal ulcers not responding to medical treatment, and complications caused by previous eye surgery can be treated by the corneal transplant surgery. Although it has safety and accuracy features but it still poses some of the risks too. It can cause severe eye infection, ocular hypertension, and rise in problems associated with the stiches used to secure the donor cornea, bleeding and various retinal problems like retinal detachment or swelling. This process includes the following methods like penetrating keratoplasty, endothelial keratoplasty, anterior lamellar keratoplasty, and artificial cornea transplant (keratoprosthesis). These methods may result in the blurry vision for a period of time after surgery. It may depend on the patient to patient condition like it may take 6 weeks to 12 weeks to get the full benefits of the surgery.

       COVID-19 Scenario Analysis:

At the early phase of COVID-19 pandemic, there was no availability of specific diagnostic tests to detect the disease in patients. Alternative diagnostic tests were used initially but were not much effective. This unavailability of specific COVID-19 diagnostic tests presented lucrative opportunities for diagnostic manufacturers to introduce their COVID-19 diagnostic kits. Many leading players as well as some start-ups from various countries utilized this opportunity and introduced COVID-19 diagnostics kits into local as well as global corneal transplant market. These players achieved edge over other diagnostics players capitalizing the opportunity from demand for COVID-19 diagnostic tests, which, in turn, helps them in maintaining their revenues in such a crisis.
