Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101112 | Status : Ongoing



Phoropters are medical devices applied to test the power of individual’s eye lenses. Phoropters are widely used in the diagnosis of eye abnormalities such as myopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism. Also, phoropters are utilized to measure natural resting position for eyes, accommodative amplitude, and vertical & vergences. With the help of phoropters, optometrists evaluate the best vision for the patient in order to deal with eye abnormalities.

Technologically advanced phoropters are capable of storing and accessing patient information more easily. According to the World Health Organization, in 2017, an estimated global population of children with visual impairment due to uncorrected refractive errors was 12 million.
