Glaucoma Market


Glaucoma is a disease that damages the eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of the eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in the eye, damaging the optic nerve. The condition is a leading cause of blindness for people over 60 years old. But blindness from glaucoma can often be prevented with early treatment. There are two main types of glaucoma – primary and secondary.

Glaucoma Market Strengths

New drug-delivery systems offer the hope of improved therapeutic outcomes by taking patient adherence out of the loop.

Glaucoma Market Opportunities

Glaucoma gene discovery also makes possible the design of novel therapies that target the actual molecular event responsible for the disease, and recent advances in methods for gene replacement and CRISPR/Cas gene-editing support the feasibility of gene-based therapies for glaucoma in the relatively near future. Currently, there are no FDA-approved gene-based methods for glaucoma.
