North America Vision Care Market to be Moderately Hit by Lockdown Restrictions on Services for Elective Procedures During Covid-19 Pandemic – Future Market Insights

North America vision care service providers are increasingly investing in telehealth to support consultation and limited treatment operations for the duration of the pandemic.

The North America vision care market is expected to surpass a valuation of US$ 100 billion by the conclusion of the forecast period between 2016 and 2026. Lockdown restrictions imposed by governments across Canada and a number of states in the United States, coupled with guidelines to postpone non-urgent eye care cases has limited short term scope of growth. Recovery is likely to be steady towards 2021, with gradual relaxation of pandemic regulations in the region.

“The growth of the North American vision care services market can be attributed to the expanding population of patients suffering from conditions such as hyperopia, or myopia, many of whom are elderly. Also, spike in diabetes, poor lifestyle choices such as a constant exposure to electronic devices, will drive demand in the long term,” says the FMI analyst.
