Ocular Trauma Devices Market Growth & Trends

The global ocular trauma devices market size is expected to reach USD 6.56 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 7.2% from 2022 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Ocular trauma is sometimes referred to as non-penetrating trauma or blunt force trauma to the eye area. Combinations of forces, including acceleration and deceleration, shearing, and crushing pressure can result in ocular trauma. Ocular trauma can cause damage to the eye, the eyelid, and the surrounding bones resulting in blunt eye injuries such as globe exploding, retinal separation, hyphemia, frontal eye hemorrhage, retrobulbar hemorrhage, fracture of the orbit, accidental glaucoma, vitreous bleeding, corneal injuries, and cataract. According to a report by the vision center, around 95% of ocular trauma occurs in men under the age of 30, often caused by interpersonal violence.

Healthcare delivery was severely damaged due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite an overwhelming number of COVID-19 cases, ophthalmic clinics witnessed a sharp reduction in outpatient visits and operations, and hospitals lost a large amount of revenue in the initial stage of the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative effect on the sales of ocular devices such as contact lenses, implants, and ocular instruments. Ophthalmic clinics stayed closed throughout the lockdown period since ophthalmologists and healthcare professionals faced the biggest risk of spreading the virus. As a result, there was a decrease in the demand for ocular care products. However, the market is expected to regain its pre-pandemic position in the coming years due to the relaxation of regulations at present and the considerable economic recovery.

Several organizations along with ophthalmologists have launched campaigns and initiatives to increase awareness about ocular care and eye health among the general public. These organizations provide seminars, tutorials, and workshops that teach technicians how to utilize different pieces of ophthalmic equipment. Such programs aid in raising awareness of eye conditions and the availability of diagnostic tools.
