Manufacturers Developing High Optical Technology in Medical Loupes

New innovations in the medical loupes market are bringing a wave of transformation for clinicians in the healthcare industry. One of these innovations is the introduction of sport frame loupes.

The global medical device industry is anticipated to grow at a steady CAGR of ~5% till the year 2030. In order to support the global medical device inventory space, healthcare companies in the medical loupes market are developing sport frame loupes coupled with VDC (variable distance control) technology that provide dentists and surgeons with improved depth of field and edge acuity.

The production of flip up loupes is estimated to reach ~335 thousand units in the medical loupes market by 2027. This is why, manufacturers are pioneering the technology of high color rendering index (CRI) for surgical dental loupes. For instance, in July 2019, Orascoptic - a manufacturer of dental headlights and loupes, announced the launch of TruColor™ - a medical loupe integrated with one-of-its-kind advanced illumination technology, which has achieved high level of color accuracy in the healthcare landscape.

The revenue of surgical applications in the medical loupes market is projected to reach a value of ~US$ 281 million by the year 2027. To gain high optical imagery, healthcare institutions are using the technology of augmented reality systems with medical loupes to assist doctors in surgical procedures volumes. The development of virtual tools has equipped surgeons to perform suturing procedures in much less time with the hybrid magnification approach. These AR systems provide microscopic images and a tracking system to trace the movements of the tools.

In the medical loupes market, these AR systems are furnished with other sight activations such as the head-mounted display (HMD). A HMD facilitates easy turn on and off of the magnification mode to perform other tasks such as grabbing surgical instruments, monitoring medical devices, and interacting with other medical partners. 

Awareness about SSI and Introduction of Custom Loupes Help Overcome Challenges

Manufacturers in the medical loupes market are constantly finding ways to reduce the incidences of surgical site infections (SSIs). Since surgical loupes worn by healthcare professionals are prone to the development of harmful bacteria and viruses during prolonged medical operations, manufacturers are educating professionals to sanitize the loupes before wearing them, and encouraging them to air out storage spaces where the loupes are kept. These techniques will help decrease the risks of surgical field contamination and iatrogenic wound infections.

Another challenge that manufacturers in the medical loupes market face is the failure to achieve the best angle according to different facial geometrics and declination angles. Many dentists frequently encounter awkward treatment room designs, as they work in multiple settings and locations. Hence, manufacturers are innovating custom loupes that can accommodate different facial geometrics and declination angles. These advanced medical loupes are made with lightweight metal work, and achieve high-quality oculars during dental and surgical operations.

Analysts’ Viewpoint on Medical Loupes Market

Analysts estimate a promising growth of ~6% CAGR for the medical loupes market during the forecast period. The trend of digital loupes with 3D (3-Dimensional) image quality is gaining widespread adoption by clinicians. However, manufacturers are questioned about neck and shoulder pain injuries by clinicians. Hence, to overcome this hurdle, they have developed customizable medical loupes that adjust the declination angle to fit to the specific situation of the clinician. Since a growing number of clinicians are increasingly investing in high-end medical loupes to avoid postural compromises, manufacturers should develop improved loupes with suitable LED (light emitting diode) lighting and improved coloring index.
