The growth of the ophthalmic ultrasound market will be driven by the increasing prevalence of age-related ocular conditions, such as glaucoma and cataracts. In addition, as the economy recovers, elective procedures such as refractive surgeries may become more commonplace, placing additional demand on ophthalmic ultrasound systems. In Europe, ultrasound procedures are generally reimbursed, making these machines a good investment for eye care practices.
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.
