Capsulotomy Adoption Underpinned by Nd: YAG Laser Surgery Deployment

High incidence of post-cataract surgical complications is augmenting the demand for advanced high speed post-surgery correction procedures

Fact.MR, Rockville MD: Award winning consulting firm Fact.MR is conducting an extensive study on the global capsulotomy market. According to the study, the market is expected to post significant gains through 2021, as ophthalmic surgical procedures resume in the post-coronavirus pandemic scenario. Long-term prospects are poised to remain elevated.

As per statistics provided by the World Health Organization, presently, over 2 billion people across the world suffer from near or distance vision impairment, with at least 50% of them being preventable. Of the 1 billion people suffering from acute visual impairments, cataract affects 94 million (9.4%) of the patient pool. Consequently, healthcare providers are actively leveraging anti-cataract surgical solutions.

Key solutions providers are exploiting Nd: YAG (Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminium Garnet) laser technologies to provide enhanced care. Players such as ASTANZA and SpaMedica are some prominent faces offering this technology on a commercial scale. The latter offers treatment for posterior capsule opacification (PCO), the most common cataract surgery complication, capable of correcting the defect within 30 to 60 seconds.

“As the global geriatric population expands, prevalence of visual impairments is rising, prompting increased number of surgeries, ultimately enhancing growth prospects for prominent capsulotomy service providers in the long run,” comments a Fact.MR analyst.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent players operating in the global capsulotomy market are Mynosys Cellular Devices, Inc., International BioMedical Devices Inc., EXCEL-LENS, Inc., Optotek Medical, Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Ellex Medical Lasers and Lumenis Ltd. among others. Key expansion strategies include product launches, acquisitions, partnerships and collaborations. The aforementioned strategies have helped manufacturers establish a firm footprint.

In October 2019, Mynosys Cellular Devices Inc. raised a sum of US$ 25 million for its Zepto cataract device to further enhance its capability of achieving precision pulse capsulotomy in challenging cataract surgery cases. The financing was undertaken with a view to strengthen R&D capacities, manufacturing of the device and commercial organization.

Likewise, Ellex Medical Lasers offers a unique capsulotomy solution equipped with next generation YAG laser technology which minimizes shockwaves, optimizing precision. The procedure is highly useful in the sense that it helps achieve a perfectly centered and precise capsulotomy which does not affect the tension of the bag and the position of the intraocular lens in the visual axis.
