Increasing demand for efficient treatment methodologies, rapid technological advancements, and rising incidence rate of ocular disorders such as corneal abrasion, cataract, dry eyes are some major drivers of the ophthalmology diagnostics and surgical devices market. Enhanced cataract surgery techniques such as implantable intraocular lenses and the introduction of retinal implants are also expected to enhance market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the introduction of new products in line with the changing healthcare dynamics such as drug-eluting contact lenses and handheld devices enabled with improved technology for early detection of macular degeneration and glaucoma are anticipated to improve usage rates. As per the WHO, approximately 153 million people around the world are affected by visual impairment. Four major refractive errors are myopia, astigmatism, hyperopia, and presbyopia. The growing geriatric population base, especially in the U.S. is expected to drive market growth by increasing the incidence rates of the target disease. According to the National Institute on Aging (NIA), by 2030, the geriatric population base is expected to reach around 72 million people
