‘Glaucoma—Epidemiology Forecast–2032’ report delivers an in-depth understanding of the Glaucoma , historical and forecasted epidemiology as well as the Glaucoma trends in the United States, EU5 (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan.

Glaucoma Disease Understanding
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, glaucoma describes a group of conditions in which there is characteristic cupping of the optic disc with corresponding visual field defects due to retinal ganglion cell loss. It is a progressive condition and the most common cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. The two major categories of glaucoma are open-angle glaucoma and narrow-angle glaucoma/angle-closure glaucoma. The “angle” in both cases refers to the drainage angle inside the eye that controls the outflow of the watery fluid (aqueous) which is being produced inside the eye.
Open-angle glaucoma (OAG) is the most common form of the disease. The drainage angle formed by the cornea and iris remains open, but the trabecular meshwork is partially blocked. This causes pressure in the eye to increase gradually and damages the optic nerve. It happens so slowly that the patient may lose vision before they are even aware of a problem, while in the case of narrow-angle glaucoma, the structure inside the eye that allows fluid to drain normally from the eye (called the drainage angle) becomes restricted. Narrow drainage angles in the eye increase the risk of the drainage angle that gets blocked, resulting in a significant increase in eye pressure and risk of vision loss. If this occurs, narrow-angle glaucoma is usually called angle-closure glaucoma.

Glaucoma Epidemiology Perspective
The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology segmented by Total Diagnosed Prevalence of Glaucoma, Type-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Glaucoma, Type-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Open-Angle Glaucoma, Type-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Secondary Open-Angle Glaucoma, Gender-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Glaucoma, Age-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Glaucoma scenario in the 7MM covering the United States, EU-5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom) and Japan from 2019 to 2032.

Glaucoma Detailed Epidemiology Segmentation
• The total diagnosed prevalent population of Glaucoma in the 7MM was 11,048,000 in 2021, which is expected to increase in the forecast period (2022-2032).
• Among the five European countries, Germany had the highest diagnosed prevalent population of Glaucoma with 1,115,113 cases, followed by Italy and France in 2021. On the other hand, Spain had the lowest.
• Japan had 3,387,932 diagnosed prevalent cases for Glaucoma in 2021.
• In 2021, in the United States, open-angle glaucoma was more prominent than closed angle with total cases of 3,119,031 cases of open angle glaucoma. Out of these total open-angle glaucoma cases, 2,807,128 cases were of primary open-angle glaucoma whereas secondary open-angle glaucoma had 311,903 cases in the United States in 2021.
• There were a total of 273,002 cases of steroid induced glaucoma in Japan in 2021. These cases are anticipated to decrease during the forecast period.
• Highest number of cases of glaucoma in the 7MM wre observed in the 40years and above age group with a total of 10,099,987cases in 2021. The least number of cases were observed in 2 to <18 years of age group. These cases are anticipated to increase during the forecast period.
“As per the analysis, a higher percentage of diagnosed prevalence was observed for females, in comparison to males, in all the 7MM countries. The highest proportion of Gluacoma cases was observed in 40 years and above age group in the 7MM. Among the major types of Glaucoma, i.e., open-angle and close-angle glaucoma, the former one accounts for a higher number of diagnosed Glaucoma cases”.

Scope of the Report

• The report provides insight into the 7MM historical and forecasted patient pool covering the United States, EU-5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan.
• The report assesses the disease risk and burden and highlights the unmet needs of Glaucoma.
• The report helps to recognize the growth opportunities in the 7MM with respect to the patient population.
• The report provides the segmentation of the disease epidemiology for 7MM by Total Diagnosed Prevalence of Glaucoma, Type-specific Diagnosed Prevalent Population of Glaucoma, Gender-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Glaucoma, Age-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Glaucoma, Type-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Open-Angle Glaucoma.
