Anomaloscope is a medical instrument used to test conditions of color blindness and for distinguishing between dichromats and anomalous trichromats. Anomaloscope is based on the Rayleigh match technology which is a mixture of both red and green light that has to match the red light source. By matching this range, the different type of red-green color deficiency or color blindness can be identified. In addition, another anomaloscope is based on moreland match (blue-green) technology for the diagnosis of tritan defects. The first anomaloscope was nagel anomaloscope, and with increasing technological advancement, new devices are introduced such as neitz anomaloscope, HMC (Heidelberg Multi Color) anomaloscope, or pickford-nicolson anomaloscope. Anomaloscope was discovered in 1907, and are widely accepted by ophthalmologist around the world. It is also used to measure both qualitative and quantitative abnormalities in color perception.
Anomaloscope Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growth of global anomaloscope market is generally driven by increasing prevalence of color blindness or color vision deficiency (CVD) in the global population. According to the research conducted, approximately 1 in every 12 men and 1 in 200 women on global level are suffering from color blindness. Moreover, in UK more than 2.7 million people are living with color blindness which is nearly 4.5% of total population, most of them are male. The genetic factor is most common cause of causing color blindness. The other factors such as technological advancement and rising awareness about the disorder are also gardening the growth of global anomaloscope market. However, high initial cost of instrument is hampering the market growth of anomaloscope. The complexity issue and availability of other technologies such as pseudoisochromatic plate tests, color hue discrimination tests, and lanterns tests are major hurdles for the growth of global anomaloscope market.
