The global ophthalmic instrumentation market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2018-2028. The study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global ophthalmic instrumentation market for 2018-2028. It presents an in-depth assessment of factors that drive and restrain growth during this period.

Vision is one of the most important senses and can be impaired by cataracts, glaucoma, retinal degeneration, or other eye conditions. Ophthalmic instruments are used in surgical procedures to help improve vision for those who have experienced damage to their eyes. ​Ophthalmic instruments may be used to help improve vision for those who have experienced damage to their eyes.

Ophthalmic instrumentation is a term that encompasses all ophthalmologic instruments and devices used in the assessment, diagnosis, management, or treatment of any eye-related condition. The use of these instruments is crucial to maintaining quality care for patients with retinal conditions such as macular degeneration. These are medical devices such as needles, knives, and drills that are used in ocular surgery. Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine which deals with diseases related to visual organs like eyes. They provide treatment for eye-related conditions such as vision problems or blindness caused by cataract removal.

On the basis of type, ophthalmic instrumentation is segmented into cataracts, refractive glaucoma, and vitreoretinal surgical microscope.


Cataracts are one of the most common eye problems in adults. Cataract surgery, also known as lens replacement or cataract removal, removes a clouded natural crystalline lens from the eye and replaces it with an artificial intraocular implant (IOL). The operation may be done for any number of reasons; sometimes only to remove all lenses so that glasses can be dispensed. Other operations are needed if there was a complication during cataracts such as glaucoma developing iced more often in people who have diabetes mellitus.

Refractive Glaucoma

Refractive glaucoma is a type of ophthalmic instrumentation that can be used to treat or prevent vision loss in people with high eye pressure and damage to optic nerve fibers. This is done by changing the shape of the cornea.

Vitreoretinal Surgical Microscope

Vitreoretinal surgical microscope for retinal detachment treatment and other vitreoretinal diseases, such as macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy. In these cases, a laser can be used to seal the hole in the retina surgically created during cataract extraction. The optical fiber allows visualization of anterior segment structures without the need of an eyelid speculum which would obstruct the view at high magnification with low light levels required in delicate procedures.

On the basis of application, the global ophthalmic instrumentation market is segmented into hospitals or specialty clinics.


In the hospital, ophthalmic instrumentation is used to treat diseases involving eye tissues such as cataracts. It also helps in performing various types of surgeries and other surgical procedures on patients who are suffering from retinal detachment, glaucoma, or vitreoretinal disorders.

Specialty Clinics

The specialty clinic is a facility that specializes in the treatment of eye conditions and diseases. Private clinics provide ophthalmic instrumentation to help diagnose problems with an individual's eyesight, as well as offer treatments for less common or more serious disorders. The specialty clinics use the instrumentation on a variety of diseases, such as cataracts and glaucoma. The other applications are in hospitals for surgeries related to cornea, retina, or vitreous humor.

On the basis of region, the global ophthalmic instrumentation market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is the largest market for ophthalmic instrumentation; owing to the high number of retinal disorders in this region such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic eye disease (DED), or glaucoma. In addition, the increasing geriatric population has led to an increased need for cataract surgery procedures.

Growth Factors

The increasing prevalence of various eye-related diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration coupled with increased revenue from government healthcare programs are the key factors driving demand for ophthalmic instruments over the forecast period.

In addition, increasing awareness about vision problems due to the aging population has emerged as another driver in recent years. Increased expenditure on pharmaceuticals used in treatment procedures will also positively impact growth prospects over the next few years.
