Lensometers are instruments used by ophthalmologists and other eye care professionals to verify and determine the strength of lenses or eye glasses. They are also known as focimeters. The introduction of projection lensometers dates back to 1922.
Lensometers help analyse UV protective properties. They provide fast measurement, ease of use, ease of handling and are high-accuracy instruments that can measure the power of low-degree lenses & coloured lens and display the PH value on the screen. Advanced versions of lensometers are available in the market, which are fully automatic and easy to operate. Moreover, lensometers are highly effective and prismatic correction instruments. Different types of lensometers have different specifications, however, their components are common. These instruments provide quick results for all types of lenses, which include hard as well as soft lenses. Generally, lensometers are used for measuring prism, spherical power, cylindrical power as well as different optical centre positions..
Global Lensometers Market: Drivers and Restraints
Lensometers are convenient and reliable instruments for ophthalmologists as they help measure all optical center positions in lenses as well as prism and other factors. With the help of lensometers, the general state of eye lenses can be assessed and all lenses, such as single-vision, progressive, bi-focal and prism, can be measured automatically. In addition, lensometers are used in faster lens detection and rapid operation. Nowadays, most people pay special attention to healthcare and eyes are the most sensitive parts of the human body. Lensometers provide better care for lenses and eliminate human error and inconsistency. With the help of these devices, ophthalmologists can record all the information on the screen in real-time and provide digital printouts of the same. Some of the lensometers are very expensive and require better handling. Manual lensometers require the simultaneous adjustment of two wheels and operators must have good vision and coordination. Moreover, the manual versions can only be used by one person at a time.
Global Lensometers Market: Segmentation

Global Lensometers Market: Overview
Patients visit ophthalmologists for eye examination mostly in cases when their eye glasses are old and want to check if there have been any changes in their power, or in case they have vision problems that require correction with the usage of eye glasses. In both cases, optometrists use a lensometer to assess the strength of lenses instead of starting from scratch. These devices help optromists verify the power of the existing glasses that are being used by patients. Different types of lensometers are available, but the most common types are manual and automatic. Automatic lensometers are well-programmed devices that are mostly used in clinics and offer vision wave-front advanced technology, whereas manual lensometers provide the accurate power of lenses and are used in optical industries. Manual lensometers are easy to carry anywhere.
