Jun 30,2020 | Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals and Medical devices

As per NCBI, the number of people suffering from diabetic retinopathy will increase from 126.6 Mn in 2010 to 191 Mn by 2030. It also states that VTDR (Vision-threatening Diabetic Retinopathy) will witness an increase from 37.3 Mn to 56.3 Mn in the same period.

The above-mentioned figures, coupled with an influx of ophthalmic diagnostic centres in the countries like India and China (homes to the 2 top-seeded diabetic patients) are expected to drive the ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market in the forecast period.

Plus, the reimbursement scenario regarding eye care treatment is improving in developed and developing countries alike. Initially, reimbursement was possible only if there was a hospital stay for at least 24 hours.

However, the present scenario is such that LASER technology enables single-day treatment and insurance coverage is applicable therein. So, people in low-income countries will also not shy away from availing eye care treatments.
