"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Keratometer, sometimes also known as an ophthalmometer, is a medical instrument used for the measurement of the curvature of the anterior surface of the cornea, a part of the eye accounting for two-thirds of the eye’s optical power. Keratometers enable the prompt and convenient measurement of the diameter of the cornea, leading the ophthalmic professional to judge the volume of the eyeball. This results in the particularly appropriate prescription of the spectacles because the vertex of the cornea and the vertex of the lens should match each other.
The main application of keratometers is in the diagnosis of astigmatism, an eye disorder where there is an imperfection in the curvature of the eye’s lens or cornea. Most individuals are born with astigmatism, or it may be caused by eye injuries or diseases, and it can be classified into three types: myopic astigmatism, hyperopic astigmatism, and mixed astigmatism. Astigmatism is a rectifiable condition, easily treated with spectacles, corrective lens, and refractive surgery. These trends are contributing to the positive growth of the global keratometers market.

The global keratometers market is anticipated to grow, owing to a number of factors such as increased prevalence of astigmatism, increasing aging population pools, greater awareness of astigmatism, new innovations of keratometers leading to efficient diagnosis, greater access to keratometers, greater demand for preventive care through regular eye examinations and increased initiatives regarding eye health by governmental and non-governmental agencies. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, astigmatism affects 1 in 3 individuals in the U.S. and more than 150 million individuals in the U.S., wear some type of corrective eyewear. Astigmatism also requires regular eye examinations using keratometers to evaluate the need for the change in corrective eyewear. These trends, combined with the other factors, are positively driving the market growth.
Some of the factors limiting the growth of the global keratometers market are the high cost associated with keratometers and the errors in keratometry. These factors are expected to hamper the growth of the global keratometers market during the forecast period.
Some of the major companies that are present in the global keratometers market are ZEISS International, TOPCON CORPORATION, Canon Inc., Veatch Ophthalmic Instruments, Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems, Bausch & Lomb Incorporated, HAAG-STREIT GROUP and NIDEK CO., LTD., and others.
