How the Growing Number of Ophthalmic Clinics is estimated to Boost Ophthalmic Ultrasound Devices Market?

The growing number of private and charitable ophthalmic clinics and ambulatory imaging centres in developing countries is expected to boost the global market for ophthalmic ultrasound systems. The rising prevalence of diabetes (which is a leading cause of ophthalmic disorders such as cataract and proliferative diabetic retinopathy), increased awareness of cataract surgery, (which is the leading cause of blindness in the United States), and other ailments such as diabetic retinopathy, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, and introduction to technologically advanced devices are some of the key factors expected to propel the ophthalmic ultrasound technology market.

The growing number of private and charitable ophthalmic clinics and ambulatory imaging centres in developing countries is expected to boost the global market for ophthalmic ultrasound systems.

How Increase in Cataract Treatment and Diabetic Retinopathy Will Boost the Ophthalmic Ultrasound Devices Market Growth?

Cataract operations are growing in number. According to the forecasts from the National Eye Institute, by 2030, the number of people afflicted with cataracts in the United States could reach about 40 million. Cataract treatments are the sole effective treatment for the condition; only cannula after the optical imaging to understand the eye tweezers and after the procedure so that the lens is correct positioned demonstrate the optical ultrasound technology's importance.

Alternative treatments for a condition called retinal edema are anticipated to allow people to feel more comfortable with their regular eye dose during the anticipated time. Growing occurrence of age-related eye conditions, like age-related macular degeneration, along with an increasing number of various levels of diabetic retinopathy in developing regions are anticipated to increase the demand for vision solutions.

Diabetic retinopathy is the most common retinal eye disorder and the leading cause of blindness. As the number of individuals living with diabetes rises, so does the number of people who experience impaired vision. According to the CDC, diabetic retinopathy affects 1 in 3 people with diabetes. As the number of people with diabetes continues to increase, so do the amount of people with diabetic retinopathy.

The dearth of ophthalmologists incurs longer waiting time in the ophthalmic system, which drives higher binding of patients to alternative treatment procedures than the ones available with ocular surgeries. Since 2019, about 10,000 ophthalmologists were performing about 4 Mn cataract surgeries in the U.S. Cataract patients are expected to double in terms of numbers during the course of the forecast, which will expand the array of operations. As a result, ophthalmologists’ shortage limits the advancement in the eyewear market in the coming years.

Which Region is projected to Offer the Largest Opportunity for Ophthalmic Ultrasound Devices Market?

In 2021, North America held the largest market share because of the significant demand for technologically advanced medical devices, including ultrasounds, CT scans, and MRI scanners.
