Ocular sealants is an adhesive material which is used as an adjuvant to surgical wound closure in ophthalmology. The various advantages of ocular sealants and glues have extended their use in all fields of ophthalmology like corneal and conjunctiva surgeries, cataract, and refractive surgery, etc. The newer ocular sealants such as biodendrimers and photocrosslinkable are highly demanded due to their better biocompatibility, increased binding forces and rapid sealing properties. There is increasing acceptance of ocular sealants and glues globally as there are certain problems associated with sutures like inflammation, irritation, risk of infection and prolong healing period. The use of ocular sealants have resulted in improved eye vision, reduced surgical time and reduced enucleation rates. These ocular sealants are used in wound reconstitution thereby improving post-operative condition without compromising wound strength. Each type of ocular sealants and glues have their own advantages as well as limitations and thus is used in different indications. Newly modified ocular sealants and glues such as chondroitin sulphate polymer and laser-activated serum albumin are widely used in ophthalmology. Although there are various ocular sealants available in the market, there is still a demand of newer ocular sealants and glues that can surpass the risks and side effects associated with the present sealants, thus leading to the better growth opportunities for the market players.
