Research and Markets: Global Glaucoma Therapeutics Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/g5q44b/global_glaucoma) has announced the addition of the "Global Glaucoma Therapeutics Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018" report to their offering.

Glaucoma is a disease of the eye in which fluid pressure within the eye increases. If left untreated the patient may lose vision and even become blind. The exact etiology of optic nerve damage due to glaucoma is not fully known, but involves mechanical compression and/or decreased blood flow in the optic nerve.

Based on whether the cause of the disease is unknown or known, glaucoma is divided into two types, open angle and closed angle glaucoma. Five main classes of medical treatment are currently used to lower intraocular pressure: prostaglandins, beta blockers, alpha adrenergic agonists, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, and fixed dose combinations.

The Global Glaucoma Therapeutics market can be divided into five segments: Prostaglandins, Beta Blockers, Alpha Adrenergic Agonists, Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors, and Fixed Dose Combinations.
