Global Orthokeratology Lens Market is Expected to Reach US$ 2304.19 million by 2027, Growing at an Estimated CAGR of 11.3% over the Forecast Period Due to an Upward Surge in Occurrences of Myopia Amongst Different Age Groups, says Absolute Markets Insights


Myopia is one of the major reasons of visual impairment and vision loss across the world, affecting people of varied age groups. Myopia increases the risk of serious disorders namely myopic macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and cataract which is one of the causes of visual impairment and blindness across many countries. In the recent past, many regions have shown a substantial rise in the incidences of myopia. High prevalence rates have been reported across United States, Israel, China, Europe, Australia, and other Asian countries. For instance, myopic macular degeneration (MMD) is the main reason of permanent monocular blindness in Japan and there are new cases of blindness in Shanghai that have been reported. A recent survey projected that myopia and high myopia is likely to affect 5 billion and 1 billion people, respectively, by the year 2050. This alarming data signifies the urgent need on controlling myopia. Over the years, a number of treatments have been implemented with an aim to suppress myopia, out of which, orthokeratology lens has proven to be one of the most effective procedure with least repercussions. OrthoK lenses flatten the cornea overnight while the patient is asleep, thus helps in minimizing the refractive error. This ability to control myopia is expected to boost the global orthokeratology lens market.

Although a large number of patients are uninformed regarding the benefits of ortho-k lens, the situation is gradually changing. To combat this lack of awareness, eye specialists have started encouraging parents to consider ortho-K for myopia control over the past few years. As ortho-k has the ability to slow down myopia, it offers a solution to the impending disorder ensuring a healthier lifestyle, which is expected to further augment the global orthokeratology lens market.
