Increase in R&D activities for the treatment of vision errors is driving the ophthalmic devices market growth. However, low awareness regarding eye-related diseases and dearth of skilled professionals are expected to hamper the growth of the market. Conversely, emerging countries such as China and India possess high growth potential, owing to improvement in healthcare infrastructure in these countries. 

Ophthalmology is a branch of medical science that deals with the structure, function, and various eye diseases. Ophthalmic devices are medical equipment designed for diagnosis, surgery, and vision correction. These devices are gaining increased importance and adoption due to surge in prevalence of various ophthalmic diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, and other vision-related issues. 

COVID-19 Scenario-

The operational disruption in the surgical instrument and equipment manufacturing, due to COVID-19 outbreak, has impacted the ophthalmic devices market. On the other hand, the supply chain disruptions have resulted in shortages of devices.

However, the government bodies in several regions have imposed certain relaxations on the restrictions, in order to maintain economic requirement. Owing to this the companies have restarted the manufacturing.

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that originated in Hubei province of the Wuhan city in China in late December. The virus that causes COVID-19 is from the family of viruses called Coronaviridae. The highly contagious disease, caused by a virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is transmitted from humans to humans. Thus, COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020. The pandemic has impacted the ophthalmology screenings due to lockdown, as ophthalmology surgeries and diagnostic screenings have been postponed. Therefore, this resulted in decline of revenue generation of market players from sales of ophthalmic equipment. Furthermore, doctors started preferring screenings teleophthalmology services such as an app, phone calls, emails, and messages.
