According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, about 1-5% of the total world population suffers from amblyopia. The growing prevalence of risk factors leading to strabismus and amblyopia is expected to drive the demand in the long run. For instance, there are various risk factors causing amblyopia, including uncorrected refractive errors, strabismus, premature birth, ptosis, traumatic head injury, cataract, and hereditary factors. It is valued that almost 120,000 new strabismus cases are reported each year in the US alone. Driven by these promising developments, the Global Synoptophore Market is estimated to see healthy growth, pegged at a CAGR of ~5% during the forecast period 2020-2025.


Diagnostic application will be the focus to gain competitive market share in the global market

The diagnostic segment dominated with the largest revenue share of over 50% in 2019. Synoptophore is commonly used to diagnose ocular muscular imbalance through sensory and motor fusion, simultaneous perception, and stereopsis tests. However, the high availability of alternatives such as prism cover and photo screen tests that are less complex, patient compliant, and cost-effective in diagnosing amblyopia and strabismus will slow down the segment’s growth. For instance, in 2016, a handheld device named Pediatric Vision Scanner (PVS) got clearance from the FDA that showed 95% accuracy in diagnosing amblyopia and strabismus. Such factors will increase the segment growth in the future.
