With the ongoing development of new and innovative BIOs, the market is expected to experience moderate growth as physicians upgrade their devices. This will lead to a slight increase in unit sales. There were approximately 18,000 practicing ophthalmologists in the United States that year. Although there were fewer ophthalmologists than optometrists, each ophthalmologist had, on average, 3.5 lanes in their practice. Every lane requires a binocular indirect ophthalmoscope. As a result, the demand for BIOs is higher among ophthalmologists.
