Urgent, Emergent Procedural Recommendations Referred by Ophthalmologists during COVID-19 Pandemic

The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) has recommended ophthalmologists to cease providing non-urgent care during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The institute has also provided a list of urgent and emergent procedures required to solve potential sight-threatening conditions. Such findings are affecting and influencing the growth of the amblyopia treatment market.

Though eye diseases seldom carry a fatal outcome, potential morbidity in patients has compelled companies in the amblyopia treatment market to maintain steady supply chains of eye patches, eyeglasses, and other treatment options. Stakeholders are gaining awareness about publications that are sharing recommendations on how to treat eye diseases such as amblyopia during the COVID-19 outbreak. However, there is a need for more specific recommendations pertaining to the amblyopia treatment.

Unwanted Side Effects from Atropine Sulfate Eye Drops Demand Increased R&D

The amblyopia treatment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period. Atropine sulfate eye drops are popular for the treatment of amblyopia and other eye conditions, including cycloplegia. However, it has been found that these eye drops may cause unwanted side effects such as blurred vision, difficulty seeing at night, and eye pain, among others. Hence, pharmaceutical companies are gaining a strong research base in eye drop formulations that lead to minimum side effects in patients.

Apart from eye drops, manufacturers in the amblyopia treatment market are increasing their production capabilities in eye patches. However, in many cases, adhesive eye patches are not well tolerated in children, leading to a rash. For this, atropine sulfate eye drops are emerging as an alternative treatment and is compelling manufacturers to improve eye drop formulations.

Use of Pure Cotton Amblyopia Eye Patches for Strabismic Amblyopia Treatment

Pure cotton amblyopia eye patches for glasses are storming the amblyopia treatment market. Such products are specially targeted for the treatment of strabismic amblyopia in children. These products are being made available through eCommerce platforms to create revenue streams. Manufacturers are designing pure cotton amblyopia eye patches that prevent any stimulation contacting with the soft skin and contain hygienic properties.

In order to meet the aesthetic requirements of children dealing with strabismic amblyopia, manufacturers are designing cute cartoons on pure cotton eye patches that can be washed repeatedly and help save costs.

Ophthalmologists Weigh Effectiveness of Prescription Glasses to Improve Patient Outcomes

Due to the immense differences between prescriptions of both the eyes, eye glasses are often unable to improve the vision of amblyopia patients. This is stressing on the need for R&D investments to improve eye glasses. On the other hand, parents are referring to publications that help understand the basics of amblyopia and its recommended glasses to improve the vision of their children.

Companies in the amblyopia treatment market are boosting their output capacities in prescription glasses meant for children suffering from myopia or hypermetropia. Ophthalmologists are recommending regular checkups to gauge the effectiveness of prescription glasses in order to improve eye vision. Such recommendations are leading to better outcomes, improved feedback, and innovations in design of prescription glasses.

Are Video Games Better as Amblyopia Treatment Option Than Eye Patches?

Video games are emerging as an innovative treatment option for amblyopia. Stakeholders in the amblyopia treatment market are increasing awareness about proper application of video games at an early age in children to be able to get their brain to work with the weaker eye by improving the connections between the brain and the eye. Since wearing an eye patch may not help the eyes to learn to work together, companies in the amblyopia treatment market are increasing their focus in video games to instantly appeal to the interest of children and parents.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Limitations in providing non-urgent care to amblyopia patients is affecting the amblyopia treatment market growth amid COVID-19 outbreak. As such, stakeholders are focusing on eCommerce and development of company owned websites to increase sales of pure cotton eye patches and prescription glasses to make available treatment options for strabismic amblyopia patients. However, there is a need to improve formulations in eye drops due to the potential incidence of unwanted side effects such as increased sensitivity of the eyes to sunlight and blurred vision. Companies in the amblyopia treatment market should increase their R&D to improve eye drop formulations, since children with poor outcomes owing to eye patches are also dependent on atropine sulfate eye drops and ointments.
