SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The global ophthalmic sutures market size is expected to reach USD 532.8 million by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View research, Inc.

  • On the basis of application, the cataract surgery segment was valued at USD 130.8 million in 2018 owing to high prevalence rate and large number of surgical procedures
  • Based on end use, ambulatory surgical centers held the largest share of more than 40.0% in 2018, fueled by large number of single-day procedures, which do not require hospital stay
