This study is one of the most comprehensive documentation that captures all the facets of the evolving Auto Keratometer market.
Auto keratometers are instruments used for the measurement of the cornea surface curvature through a fixed chord length. They offer the peripheral and central curvatures of the cornea at various points, and are used for the determination of astigmatism.
Commercial keratometers are a combination of automated refractors and automated keratometry. Auto keratometers are commonly used for the determination of the actual refractive inaccuracy of the eye as well as the refractive power. Thus, the demand for auto keratometers is increasing significantly in hospitals, clinics, and diagnosis centers across the globe. Furthermore, auto keratometers also determine the pupil size and pupillary distance of the eye. These applications and end uses of auto keratometers are expected to fuel the growth of the market.
Increasing prevalence of astigmatism contributing to the demand growth of auto keratometer
Astigmatism is a common vision condition that causes blurred vision, eyestrain, and headaches. The prevalence of astigmatism has been on the rise across the globe due to the irregular curvature of the eye lens or cornea. This is boosting the demand for auto keratometers for the determination of astigmatism, and this is another factor that is expected to fuel the growth of the auto keratometer market during the forecast period.
