Market Overview

Ophthalmic devices are medical equipment designed for diagnosis, surgical, and vision correction purposes. These devices have gained increasing importance and adoption due to the rising burden of various eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataract, and other vision-related issues. The rising prevalence of eye-related diseases is leading to increased demand for ophthalmic devices. In many developed and developing countries, eye conditions have emerged as potential threats to the populations. Cataract surgery is considered as the most commonly performed surgery in South Korea. According to the National Health Insurance Service, it was estimated that around 360,000 people underwent cataract surgery in South Korea in 2016. Hence, as the number of eye disorders increases, there is a large demand for ophthalmic devices that are used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, driving the market growth over the forecast period. However, risk associated with ophthalmic procedures is expected to hinder the market growth.

Key Market Trends

Lasers Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth during the Forecast Period

Based on surgical devices, the market is segmented into glaucoma devices, intraocular lenses, lasers, and other surgical devices. Laser eye procedure is intended to correct long-term vision problems in people. The laser can be applied to the iris or the trabecular meshwork to allow aqueous fluid to flow more effectively within the eye and drain better by the normal drainage channels within the eye. Laser vision correction has a very high success rate, and many patient’s reliance on eyeglasses or contact lenses is significantly reduced. Hence, owing to the high growth opportunities, the segment is believed to witness rapid growth over the forecast period.
