Orthokeratology (Ortho-K), an emerging treatment option for myopia, presbyopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, is non-invasive and works on the principle of corneal replacement. Currently, the market has two FDA approved Ortho-K therapies, viz. Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) and VisionShaping Treatment (VST). Patients undergoing this treatment are advised to wear the Ortho-K lenses for 6-8 hours at night while sleeping, which reshape their cornea to deliver clear vision in the day time.

As projected by a recent research study conducted by Future Market Insights, the global orthokeratology market will possibly reach the revenue worth US$ 88.7 Mn by the end of 2028, witnessing robust expansion at 7.4% CAGR over 2018-2028.

Ortho-K May Gain Excellent Traction among Young Myopia Patients

The recent Sydney Myopia Study found that 31% of 17 year olds are myopic, which is double the prevalence reported earlier by the Blue Mountain Eye Study - more than a decade ago. Orthokeratology is considered to be an ideal treatment alternative for young aged patients, as they are not eligible for laser surgery such as LASIK. Bolstering prevalence of myopia is thus a predominant factor expected to drive the growth of the orthokeratology market over the forecast period. Moreover, several advantages of orthokeratology lenses over conventionally used contact lenses, especially for sportspersons will also be a key factor fuelling the market growth.

A few limitations of LASIK surgery are also identified to be responsible for robust growth of orthokeratology market, over the projection period. Additionally, the increasing online campaign is expected to increase awareness among people about the use of orthokeratology lenses for the treatment of myopia, eventually pushing the demand of orthokeratology lenses up in next few years.
