The guidelines implemented by ophthalmologist worldwide basically depends upon the various stages of the disease and accurate diagnosis. Preservative-free artificial tears are currently spearheading the medication segment due to its applicability in various stages of the corneal injury owing to its capability to provide lubrication and moisture wetness to the irritated corneal surface and stimulates lacrimation which is useful in maintaining eye hygiene Topical antibiotics are prescribed judiciously especially in the 2nd stage of the disease as a preventive measure against corneal infection.

However, in spite of the medicinal treatment surgical intervention has proved beneficial in the 3rd stage of the disease. The surgical intervention is further categorized as Tarsorraphy and amniotic membrane transplantation. Tarsorrhaphy is dominating the surgical intervention segment owing to its popularity among ophthalmologists for the treatment of corneal ulcers.

Regional Analysis

In the present scenario, North America is responsible for 33.5% market share in 2018, in the geography segment for neurotrophic keratitis market. The sole factors responsible for outstanding market growth are rising incidence rate of stage 1 neurotrophic keratitis and huge investment made by government healthcare authorities for the development of novel drug development pertaining to treatment of corneal infection.
