Vision Testing System Market Introduction

Vision testing is examination of eyes for diagnosis of any abnormalities or defects. Various types of vision testing systems are used by optometrists and ophthalmologists to detect vision defects or eyes disorders. Uncorrected refractive errors are the major causes of visual impairment and vision loss in the long term. 

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a vision testing system, which uses light waves and takes cross-sectional images of the retina. Corneal topography is another vision testing system, which provides detailed description of various curvature and shape characteristics of the cornea. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables an ophthalmologist to visualize the distinctive layers of the retina, which helps in the treatment of patients suffering from glaucoma.

Vision Testing System Market – Dynamics 

Increase in incidence of eye diseases and refractive errors is a major factor driving the global vision testing system market

Rise in prevalence of eye defects such as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and glaucoma boosts the growth of the global vision testing system market. According to National Eye Institute statistics, around 2.9 million people in the U.S. have low vision and nearly 5 million people are estimated to have low vision by 2030.Further, rise in the geriatric population is another key factor propelling the incidences of vision related disorder which in turn is expected to drive the global vision testing system market during the forecast period. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the global geriatric population is likely to reach 2 billion (22% of the global population) by 2050, as compared to 617 million in 2015.

Government initiatives and technological advancement is fuelling the vision testing system market

Manufacturers are focusing on innovation of technologically advanced vision testing systems. This is also likely to augment the global vision testing system market. Government initiatives for eye care in developing countries such as India is another factor driving demand for vision testing systems. 

High cost of vision testing systems restraining vision testing system market growth

However, high cost of vision testing systems is expected to hamper the growth of the global vision testing system market during the forecast period. Comprehensive eye testing examination methods opted by optometrists and ophthalmologists for eye care is expensive. According to the American Optometric Association, optometrists accounted for 53% of primary eye care services provided to patients in North America in 2013, while ophthalmologists and opticians accounted for the remaining 47%. High cost of eye test using advanced vision testing system and poor reimbursement polices might impact the market.
