Introduction

Worldwide, age-related vision issues are becoming endemic and there is expected to be a severe shortage of trained professionals to address these issues. Eye care experts are relying upon newer devices and technologies to provide crisp, clear vision to presbyopes, including earlier diagnosis of ocular surface disorders, improved cataract surgery techniques, and customized implants.

Scope

- Assess the innovative technologies and devices catering to the presbyopic market and how these will influence treatment options and outcomes.
- Evaluate the potential for growth in the dry eye market stimulated by advances in diagnosis and treatment.
- Identify the advances in imaging that are providing a better understanding of vision disorders and improving cataract surgery outcomes.
- Understand geographic differences in the use of techniques such as presbyLASIK and corneal crosslinking.

Highlights

Age-related eye diseases will grow significantly over the next few decades, and the demand for spectacle-free vision will grow in parallel. Devices such as the femtosecond laser for refractive cataract surgery, newer IOLs, and quicker methods to READ MORE >
