US Market Report for Fundus Cameras 2017 – MedCore
Fundus cameras, which are also known as retinal cameras, are low powered microscopes coupled with a camera. The fundus encompasses structures in the back of the eye, including the retina, optic disc, macula and posterior pole. Fundus cameras are used for diagnosing and tracking the progression of ocular diseases affecting the fundus, such as macular degeneration and glaucoma.

General Report Contents Market Analyses include: Unit Sales, ASPs, Market Value & Growth Trends Market Drivers & Limiters for each chapter segment Competitive Analysis for each chapter segment Section on recent mergers & acquisitionsThis market includes mydriatic and non-mydriatic fundus cameras. Each of the segments are further divided into table mounted and handheld devices. Fundus cameras that were combined with OCTs are excluded from this analysis. The persistent growth of the market is partly because the ever-increasing prevalence of age-related ocular conditions, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, will drive demand for ocular diagnostic tools, such as fundus cameras. As with non-mydriatic devices, the handheld mydriatic market is currently emerging and strongly outpacing the unit growth of the established table mounted market. Furthermore the table mounted market is losing ground to combination devices which incorporate fundus cameras into other ophthalmic equipment. Mydriatic fundus cameras require the administration of pupil-dilating drugs for operation, and thus are typically purchased by ophthalmologists. Fundus cameras are low powered microscopes combined with a camera that are used for diagnosing and tracking the progression of ocular diseases affecting the fundus, such as macular degeneration and glaucoma. As a result of the increasing prevalence of such conditions, fundus cameras will continue to be in demand as the average age of the U.S. population increases.
