Venture Eyes Ophthalmology--And Likes What It Sees

Ophthalmology has long been a bright spot for venture investors given the potential market size, health care burden, and high unmet medical need associated with many eye diseases. Based on a recent analysis by Start-Up magazine, there is no sign that trend is diminishing. Using Elsevier's Strategic Transactions database, Start-Up found that private backers have poured nearly $1.8 billion into 58 ophthalmology start-ups since 1999, with the money split nearly 50/50 in terms of device and drug investments. This trend is likely to accelerate as a number of new acquirers emerge to play in what was once a niche area.

Among others, MacuSight, Danube, and Lux, profiled here, are to one extent or another revisiting the existing pharmacopeia to test ophthalmic indications for existing compounds.
