Ophthalmic Imaging Equipment Market Trends

Increasing Prevalence of Digital Eye Strain among Teenagers & Adults: Prevalence of eye diseases such as vision impairment is increasing among teenagers. Excess usage of computers and mobile phones leads to digital eye strain, and is majorly responsible for vision impairment among teenagers.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 6.8% of children younger than 18 years have been diagnosed with eye and vision condition in the United States.

According to the Vision Council, around 80% of American adults report the usage of digital technologies for above 2 hours per day; approximately 59% are facing indications of digital eye strain. Increasing number of cases will flourish the growth of the ophthalmic imaging equipment market over the forecast period of 2020 to 2030.

Increasing Cases of Diabetic Retinopathy and Macular Degeneration: Diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration are common disorders among the geriatric population. These patients demand proper diagnosis technology to detect vision abnormality and signs of injury.

According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 196 Mn people are affected by age-related macular degeneration globally, among which, 5.3% have a moderate or severe distance vision impairment or blindness. Moreover, approximately 64 Mn people are suffering from glaucoma, of which, 10.9% are reported to have moderate or severe distance vision impairment.

Focus on Introduction of Advanced Ophthalmic Imaging Equipment: Advanced ophthalmic imaging equipment is expected to gain high demand over the forecast period as an excellent outcome. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing on the introduction of new ophthalmic diagnostic devices for the diagnosis of different diseases.

Manufacturers are focusing on the expansion of their product line in the ophthalmic imaging equipment division. For instance, in September 2019, Topcon launched the Maestro2 Automated OCT/Fundus Camera with OCT angiography.
