Corneal Topographers Market Analysis | United States | 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 Device Market Analysis, Size, Trends | United States | 2017-2023 | MedSuite (Includes 13 Reports)

The full report suite on the U.S. market for ophthalmic devices includes disease rates, ophthalmic coherence tomography, fundus cameras, data management systems, slit lamps, perimeters, tonometers, autorefractors/keratometers, binocular indirect ophthalmoscopes, ophthalmic ultrasound devices, wavefront abberometers, corneal topographers, and optical biometers. Currently the U.S. market for ophthalmic devices is being limited by competition from manufacturers that are either new or trying to expand into the U.S. market. Many ophthalmic device manufacturers have recently entered the market. Some of these companies are based in Italy, Japan and China, and severely undercut the prices in order to gain market share. The lower pricing and reduction in market share results in an overall adjustment in the ASPs. This is evident in the ophthalmic ultrasound and fundus camera markets, where Chinese and Italian manufacturers are entering the market with lower cost options.

Ophthalmic Device Market Analysis, Size, Trends | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedSuite

In 2016, more integration was seen in the overall market for diagnostic and interventional ophthalmic devices. In the diagnostic space, practitioners are enjoying better, more flexible diagnostic capabilities with ophthalmic data management systems; these systems unify discrete pieces of diagnostic equipment. A similar technology, procedure planning software, unifies different surgical equipment for more precise and reliable cataract surgery. This software is bringing the diagnostic and interventional sides of the market closer together, with diagnostic information being imported for use during the surgical process. Integration is also changing the competitive landscape. Topcon and Carl Zeiss Meditec, players traditionally focused on diagnostics, are now gaining footholds in the market for surgical products.
