DelveInsight's Open-angle glaucoma (OAG)-Epidemiology Forecast-2030 report delivers an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical, and forecasted epidemiology of OAG in the United States, EU5 (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan.
Study Period: 2017-2030
Open-angle glaucoma (OAG) - Disease Understanding
Open-angle glaucoma (OAG) is a progressive form of glaucoma in which the channel formed between the iris and the cornea remains open and tissue changes along the channel, which gradually reduces the drainage of the aqueous humor through the trabecular meshwork of the eye's anterior chamber. It is the most common form of glaucoma which accounts for the majority of the glaucoma cases. The term "Open-Angle" refers to the angle where the iris meets the cornea and is as wide and open as it should be. OAG is mainly caused by the slow clogging of the drainage canals, resulting in increased eye pressure.
The OAG is primarily divided into two subtypes, i.e., Primary OAG and Secondary OAG. The risk factors of open-angle glaucoma are divided into four categories, general factors, ocular factors, nonocular factors, and ocular hypertension.
The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology [segmented by Total Prevalence of Glaucoma in the 7MM, Total Diagnosed Prevalent Population of Open-Angle Glaucoma in the 7MM, Gender-Specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Open-Angle Glaucoma in the 7MM, Age-Specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Open-Angle Glaucoma in the 7MM and Type - Specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Open-Angle Glaucoma in the 7MM scenario of OAG in the 7MM countries covering United States, EU5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and United Kingdom), and Japan from 2017 to 2030.
As per DelveInsight's analysis, a higher percentage of diagnosed prevalence of OAG was observed for females, in comparison to males, in all the 7MM countries. DelveInsight's analysts have assessed that the total prevalent population of Glaucoma in the 7MM was 9,819,080 in 2017. In addition to this it was also assessed that among those with glaucoma in the 7MM, more than 8.5 million were diagnosed with OAG. DelveInsight's estimate suggests that the United States witnessed the highest number of cases with OAG, as compared to other 7MM countries. As per DelveInsight's estimates, the country accounted for approximately 2,749,378 cases in 2017.
Among the EU-5 countries, Germany accounted for the highest number of glaucoma cases in 2017, which was observed to be equivalent to more than 25% of the total affected population in this region. The number of cases for glaucoma was observed to be 1,041,889 in the country for 2017. However, Spain accounted for the lowest number of glaucoma cases in 2017, which was approximately 13.33% of the total affected population of EU-5 countries. According to DelveInsight's analysts, Japan accounted for the second-highest number of OAG patients, i.e., 28.79% of the total OAG population in the 7MM countries.
According to DelveInsight's assessment, it has been observed that OAG prevalence varied across the 7MM countries, based on the age-specific prevalence of the disease. For instance, the highest proportion was observed in the 70-79 years age group in the US, while in the EU-5 countries, people aged ≥80 years accounted for the maximum patient pool. In contrast, the middle age population aged 50-59 years contributed to the highest patient pool in Japan.
