Glaucoma, the second most common cause of blindness worldwide is generally characterized by relatively high intraocular pressure (IOP) as a result of impaired drainage of fluid, known as aqueous humor, from the eye. Currently approved treatments for glaucoma include a number of pharmaceutical drugs, laser therapies and surgical procedures. Glaucoma treatment forms a significant portion of the overall eye care market.
The market for glaucoma treatment has grown rapidly in the last decade, based on both increasing number of people with glaucoma and the introduction of new treatments. However, the worldwide glaucoma treatment market is expected to decline that can be attributable to price reduction of drugs due to generic availability of many brands in coming years.
The glaucoma pharmaceuticals are segmented into two classes namely prostaglandins analogues (PGAs) and Non PGAs that include beta blockers, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors and alpha agonists. PGAS are the most widely prescribed drug class for glaucoma with latanoprost (brand name Xalatan) the most commonly prescribed drug.
