Ophthalmic Equipment Market: Overview
Ophthalmology is a branch of science that deals with the anatomical and physiological study of eyes. Ophthalmic equipment are used to monitor, diagnose, and prevent ophthalmic disorders such as cataract and glaucoma. These also include devices used to improve vision such as spectacles and contact lenses.
The global ophthalmic equipment market is primarily driven by increasing geriatric population. Aging increases the prevalence of cataract, glaucoma, diabetes, and ophthalmic complications associated with diabetes. Age-related macular degenerations (AMD), technological advancements, government initiatives for old visually impaired patients such as free of cost camps for eye check-up and cataract problems, and rise in adoption of contact lenses and spectacles also propel the market. However, high cost of ophthalmic contact lenses and ophthalmic devices, increase in adoption of refurbished ophthalmic devices, less access to eye care products for low income group, lack of skilled ophthalmologists, and poor reimbursement policies for ophthalmic devices act as restraints of the global ophthalmic equipment devices market.
