Tonometers Market Analysis and Size
Tonometry is a diagnostic test that measures intraocular pressure (IOP). The IOP is caused by the force exerted by the liquids inside the eyeball, particularly the aqueous fluid and other internal structures. If more aqueous humour is produced, than is removed either due to excess production or removal difficulties, the IOP rises, increasing the risk of damage. The Goldmann Applanation Tonometry technique is the most commonly used measurement technique, which involves measuring the resistance shown by the cornea when it is flattened. This technique allows us to obtain intraocular pressure values, which typically range between 10 and 21mm Hg.

A tonometer is a device used to measure intraocular pressure or the pressure of the fluid within the eye. Tonometry is a diagnostic test that is most commonly used to detect glaucoma. Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes damage to the optic nerve. The buildup of extra fluid pressure inside the eye damages the optic nerve, and if left untreated, it can cause peripheral vision loss and eventually lead to permanent vision loss. Tonometers can measure intraocular pressure by measuring the resistance of the cornea to indentation.
Global Tonometers Market Dynamics
- Increasing prevalence of ophthalmic disorders
The rising prevalence of glaucoma, diabetes, myopia, and hypertension is expected to contribute to market growth. According to the studies, diabetes increases the risk of glaucoma by 36.0%. A study published in the American Academy of Ophthalmology predicted that the global prevalence of glaucoma in adults aged 40 to 80 years would be 76.0 million in 2020 and 111.8 million in 2050. In recent years, increased elderly populations, lower mortality rates, and longer life expectancy have all contributed to an increase in tonometers demand.
- Increase in the number of eye screening programmes
During the forecast period, the increasing number of glaucoma screening programmes organised by the private, semi-public, and public healthcare sectors is expected to drive market growth. The glaucoma has no visible symptoms regular eye exams are the only way to detect it early. The growing number of eye check-up clinics raises awareness about glaucoma and its impact on vision, driving demand for tonometers.
- Government programmes
An increase in the number of eye screening programmes is also expected to drive market growth. For instance, Vision 2020: The Right to Sight – India, organised a national conference on community ophthalmology to provide a platform for eye care practises and successful management as well as free eye check-up camps.
- Increased patient awareness about early diagnosis
In the near future, the market is expected to be driven by increased patient awareness about early diagnosis and regular monitoring of intraocular pressure (IOP) to prevent avoidable vision loss. Tonometers are expected to be more widely used in hospitals and clinics if favourable reimbursement policies are implemented. For instance, in the United States, United Healthcare, an insurance company, reimburses the cost of standard and advanced tonometers such as the Pascal dynamic contour tonometer under Category III CPT 0198T code.
On the other hand, unavailability of early detection technique along with high cost of devices and inaccuracy of non-contact tonometers will obstruct the market's growth rate.
