With growth in the number of cataract procedures resulting from the aging population, practices are expected to continue to expand their capacity over the forecast period. In addition, new offices are expected to open at a rate similar to the growth of the patient pool. Prices, however, have established consistent values and will only see slight erosion throughout the forecast due to competition.
Optical biometers are partial coherence interferometry devices designed to generate a range of biometry measurements as well as to assist with intraocular lens (IOL) calculations. Optical biometers are capable of taking multiple measurements including axial length, anterior chamber depth, corneal thickness and lens thickness. All measurements are taken at a single optometry or ophthalmology station. Contact with the cornea is not required for the functioning of optical biometers, which improves measurement accuracy.
