Corneal Topographers Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Corneal topography is also known as videokeratography or corneal mapping. Characterizing the curvature of the cornea is important because this tissue contributes significantly to the refractive power of the eye. Corneal topography is used for evaluating the curvature of the cornea. This information is then used for contact lens fitting and for planning refractive procedures such as Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) or Phakic intraocular lens implantation. Corneal topography is also used for detecting keratoconus, which is characterized by thinning of the cornea to a point where the intraocular pressure is sufficient to cause the cornea to assume a cone shape. The devices also have an application in planning cataract surgery. Toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation is effective in treating regular astigmatism. However, to the extent that the patient’s astigmatism is irregular, with the principle meridians of the eye not lying perpendicular to one another, toric IOLs will be ineffective. Corneal topography can provide a definitive assessment of the nature of a patient’s corneal astigmatism. As such, corneal topography is an essential preoperative step for the implantation of a toric IOL. Because of the increasing popularity of advanced technology IOLs in cataract surgery, and the associated importance of corneal analysis in the pre-operative process, manufacturers have been releasing products in recent years that specifically target applications associated with cataract surgery. This includes devices that combine corneal topography with optical biometry, pachymetry and other corneal measurements.

Ophthalmic Ultrasound Systems Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Ophthalmic ultrasound is a non-invasive technique to image ocular structures. Because ophthalmic ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves, it has advantages over light microscopy, including the ability to detect anomalies that cannot be identified by visual examination such as those affecting opaque tissues and regions within the eye. The applications for ophthalmic ultrasonography include the detection of glaucoma, infections, eye trauma and for calculating the power of the intraocular lens (IOL) required in cataract surgery. Ultrasonography is also used for aiding physicians with the placement of instruments during surgery.

Perimeters Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Some ophthalmic conditions can lead to tunnel vision, a disorder characterized by loss of vision. Glaucoma, a disease of the optic nerve, can ultimately result in visual field loss. Other diseases can alter the visual field, including those that affect other eye structures such as the retina and those that impact neurological function. To diagnose and measure the progression of diseases that affect visual field, patients are subjected to visual field tests. A perimeter is a device that is used for measuring a patient’s visual field.

Slit Lamps Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Slit lamps are binocular microscopes that are coupled with illumination systems. Slit lamps are used for diagnosing a wide variety of eye conditions including cataracts, corneal injuries, retinal detachment, macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome, retinitis pigmentosa and uveitis. Basic slit lamps are used for observing anterior eye segment structures including the eyelid, cornea, lens and iris. The addition of special lenses to the slit lamps provides for the ability to view intraocular and posterior regions of the eye. Other accessories for slit lamps include ocular and objective lenses, contact tonometers, background illuminators, beam splitters and digital imaging equipment.

Tonometers Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

A tonometer is a device that is used for measuring the intraocular pressure of an eye. Elevated intraocular pressure is associated with glaucoma, a disease that is characterized by the degeneration of the optic nerve. Tonometers are segmented into contact or non-contact types. The market for contact tonometers consists of both Goldmann tonometers and portable electronic, or hand held, tonometers. Portable electronic tonometers have been on the market for approximately 25 years. However, these devices have recently had success in new areas. In particular, optometrists have been adopting handheld devices in recent years. Goldmann and handheld contact tonometers are not direct competitors. Most ophthalmologists have a Goldmann but many are also interesting in having a handheld device on hand as a secondary tonometer.

Wavefront Aberrometers Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore

Wavefront aberrometry is used for measuring the total refractive power of the eye. A wavefront represents the quality of light passing through the eye. Factors that affect a wavefront are optical elements such as lenses or the cornea of the eye. Aberrometry provides detailed information about the visual performance and refractive power of the eye. Wavefront aberrometers can detect errors including myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Aberrometry is especially useful for higher-order refractive errors and lenticular changes that cannot ordinarily be detected by routine ophthalmic exams. These include spherical and coma aberrations, which cause halos or comet-like streaks around light foci.

Bone-Anchored Hearing Aids Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore

A bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA) is a surgically implanted device designed to treat hearing loss by transmitting the sounds it receives through direct bone conduction to the nerve fibers of the inner ear. The device consists of an externally worn receiver and sound processor, which resembles a standard behind-the-ear hearing aid, and an external abutment that vibrates a titanium implant. The hearing aid is operational once the titanium fixture bonds with the surrounding tissue (osseointegration). This process usually takes two to six months from when the device has been implanted. Patients with conductive and mixed hearing loss are the primary candidates for bone-anchored hearing aids; this includes patients with chronic inflammation or infection of the ear canal which prevents the use of standard hearing aids, patients with conditions which have led to malformation of the ear canal, patients with single-sided deafness, patients with a bilateral conductive loss due to ossicular disease and patients who have malformed or absent outer ear and ear canals.
