Rising Eye Health Demands

 

The prevalence of eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration is expected to increase every year. Over 300 million people were suffering from moderate-severe vision loss worldwide in 2021. In Europe, the incidence rate is more severe and hit an all-time high last year, with over 50 million people affected. Additionally, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in growing negative impacts on ocular health. Research suggests that Europe has been affected more severely than other regions.
