Corneal Topographers Market Analysis and Size
According to the World Health Organization, as of October 2019, approximately 2.2 billion people worldwide were affected by vision impairment or blindness, with at least 1 billion having unaddressed or preventable conditions. According to the Vision Loss Expert Group, 12% of blindness or vision impairment was caused by refractive error, 6.3% by cataract, 0.7% by glaucoma, 0.4% by corneal opacities, 0.3% by diabetic retinopathy, and 0.2% by trachoma in 2017. Presbyopia accounted for 80.1% of all unresolved cases. Furthermore, an increase in the volume of surgical procedures in various healthcare settings such as hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory care centres is expected to boost demand for advanced corneal topographers.

The corneal topographer is a device that analyses the three corneal surfaces described in the previous section. The placido disc is projected onto the cornea by this ophthalmological equipment. It looks like a disc with concentric circles on it. The cornea is a clear dome-shaped eye cover that protects the pupil, iris, and anterior chamber. The cornea, along with the ear and lens, forms the anterior chamber of the eye and accounts for 70% of its optical capacity. Corneal topographer is a computer-assisted video keratography tool that aids in the graphical representation and examination of the corneal surface.
Corneal topography is used in refractive surgery to screen candidates for patterns and ruling out suspicious or keratoconic patterns, normal corneal shape.
Global Corneal Topographers Market Dynamics
- High demand for corneal topographers and optical coherence tomography devices
Corneal topographer systems and optical coherence tomography devices have been identified as critical in ophthalmology, as traditional clinical evaluation modalities such as slit lamp or indirect ophthalmoscopy are used to image or test the anterior segment of the retina. According to the WHO, cataract is responsible for more than half of all cases of blindness worldwide. The prevalence of cataract and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is expected to rise during the forecast period, because of the increased number of elderly people.
- Increase in incidence of cataract and glaucoma in Asia-Pacific
According to the Journal of Scientific Report, the prevalence of congenital cataract (one of the leading causes of preventable childhood blindness) ranges from 1 to 15 per 10,000 children in Asia Pacific. Implantation and surgery are used to treat this condition, because of the high prevalence of this condition, the demand for ophthalmic diagnostic devices used in primary care or treatment processes is expected to rise. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the number of people suffering from glaucoma is expected to rise from 64 million in 2014 to 76 million in 2020 and 111 million in 2040, with Asia and Africa suffering the most.
- Awareness programs on ocular diseases and training programs on new ophthalmic diagnostic devices
Organizing research and training camps at universities and ophthalmology research organizations to raise awareness about cataract and glaucoma can help new ophthalmic diagnostic devices be adopted. The Haag-Streit Academy held a successful slit lamp imaging course at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Leeds in November 2018. Delegates had the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with HS-cutting-edge UK's imaging devices, including a specialist workshop on advanced photography focused on Haag-BX Streit's 900 Slit Lamp.
- High cost of corneal topographers
High cost of corneal topographers, low adoption rate in emerging and underdeveloped countries, stringent government regulations, lack of awareness about the usage of these devices will obstruct the market's growth rate.
