Worldwide, uncorrected refractive errors are the main cause of moderate and severe visual impairment and cataracts, which is the leading cause of blindness in middle- and low-income countries. On the basis of therapeutic, the global ophthalmic drugs are segmented into glaucoma ophthalmic drugs, retinal disorder ophthalmic drugs, dry eye ophthalmic drugs and allergic conjunctivitis. Glaucoma ophthalmic drugs held the largest share in global ophthalmic drugs market. It is estimated that over three million Americans are suffering from glaucoma, being the leading cause of blindness in people of 60 years of age. Early detection and treatment with the help of glaucoma eye drops and glaucoma surgery or both can help retain vision.
