Eye Sphere Implants Market is Expected To Witness Greater Demand and Projected To Grow Over 2022-2032

Business Industry Insights

Market Overview

An artificial eye is usually attached to the anterior of the orbital implant for cosmetic purposes. An orbital implant is used to replace the area in the orbit (bony cavity) occupied by the eye. This small, spherical implant maintains the natural structure of the orbit and provides support for the artificial eye. They are rounded objects made of coral, Teflon, or alloplastic polymer and covered with sclera implanted in the orbit following enucleation. The glass or gold is placed in the muscle cone after enucleation of an eye. These small spheres of glass or gold were later replaced by plastic (acrylic) or silicone spheres. The orbital implant designed and developed to address numerous of the common problems associated with the correction of the anophthalmic socket. The device provides removal of the anterior surface of the channels in the medial, lateral and inferior quadrants.

The first orbital implants (also known as eye spheres) were developed about 100 years ago. Though the first-generation implants were the major improvement for those wearing an artificial eye, but they were unable to deliver natural movement to the artificial eye. This lack of movement was a major obstacle to restoring a natural appearance, which made the adjustment to wearing an artificial eye much more difficult, and required numerous surgeries. These problems led the innovation of better orbital implant.

Request Sample Report

The advanced orbital implants comes in several sizes such as 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, and 22 mm diameters, which are safe (MRI safe also) and FDA approved. These new orbital implants are also made of durable PMMA, and silicone. PMMA implants are less expensive than their hydroxyapatite and porous polyethylene counterparts, due to its efficiency of the manufacturing process. Both these implants have same motility outcomes. However, PMMA implants have a history of much lower exposure rates than hydroxyapatite and porous polyethylene.

Competitive Landscape

Examples of some of the major players in the global eye sphere implants market are Molteno Ophthalmic Limited, Gulden Ophthalmics, Hilco Vision, Porex Surgical Group, etc. Acquisition, mergers, strategic collaborations, expansion, and technology play vital roles in the growth of the global eye sphere implants market.
