Cataracts are a clouding of the eye’s natural lens that impairs one’s ability to see
clearly. With two accommodating Intraocular Lens IOLs likely to be approved within the
next 12 months, the premium market is again exciting.

Intraocular lens market driving forces include the aging of the population. With age,
all people have cataracts which can be cured with IOL. There is an ever-increasing baby
boom aging population. There is a growing precision of cataract surgery. Safety of
cataract surgical medical devices and lenses are primary market concerns. More advanced
procedures are driving an increase in cataract surgery. Lower costs per surgery are
driving an increase in cataract surgery.

Cataract surgical technology is evolving rapidly. Premium intraocular lenses (IOLs)
introduced during the past decade and those still in the pipeline are raising patient’s
post-cataract visual expectations. Laser-assisted cataract surgery technology is gaining
traction with clinicians. Surgeons are getting trained in the techniques needed to perform
surgeries these new types of equipment. The motivation to learn the new surgical
techniques is that the equipment comes with the promise of improved surgical precision.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the WinterGreen Research team that prepared

brings clinical improvement. Patients are thrilled when they can see so much more

As a result, growing needs and expectations for good vision in all ranges have created
significant new market opportunities, expanding demand for multifocal and accommodating
IOLs designed to correct presbyopia, aspheric optics that address spherical aberration and
make vision sharper, and phakic IOLs allowing treatment of extreme refractive error.

Ultrasonic phacoemulsification, the standard of care in cataract removal equipment for
four decades, has been in great part responsible for the safety and effectiveness of
modern cataract surgery. It is certain to remain the dominant lens removal technology in
the near term. A technology still in its infancy, laser-assisted cataract surgery using
femtosecond lasers and picosecond lasers, promises to raise the standard of precision and
safety to new heights.

Numerous types, and styles of Intraocular Lenses (IOLs), varying in size, and
attachment mechanisms. The femtosecond lasers may evolve capability to fix the cataract
without implanting an IOL devices, creating a significant change in the market after the
forecast period.

The eye care industry is highly competitive and subject to rapid technological change
and evolving industry requirements and standards. Companies within this industry compete
on technological leadership and innovation, quality and efficacy of their products,
relationships with eye care professionals and healthcare providers, breadth and depth of
product offering and pricing. The presence of these factors varies across regions.

In the United States, the leading market segment, an aging population, the affluence
of the American “baby boomer” generation, and the ability of surgeons to bill for a
premium refractive outcome will drive significant growth in this lens-based refractive
surgery sector.

Intraocular Lens (IOL) markets are driven by the trend towards multi-distance vision
capability, near middle, and far. The global market is expected to post a modest growth.
The global market for Intraocular Lenses (IOL) total market value is expected to reach
$3.8 billion by 2019.

The global intraocular lens cataract market is expanding with the aging of a more
affluent middle class population. There were 19 million cataract surgeries in 2010 and
19.7 million in 2012. Cataracts account for 48% of world blindness. Cataracts are the
leading cause of reversible blindness.
