Orthokeratology Market Drivers
Increasing Prevalence of Myopia and Presbyopia
The increasing prevalence of myopia and presbyopia is increasing the growth of the Orthokeratology Market. Myopia results in near-sightedness and causes distant objects to appear blurred. It can be caused by the cornea and eye being too curved for the length of the eyeball. Presbyopia is the aging of the eye that will affect almost everyone eventually regardless of whether one has previously perfect vision. Myopia affects 1.89 million people in U.S. Thus, increasing the growth of the Orthokeratology Market during the forecast period 2021-2026.
Growing Adoption of Advanced and Innovative Ortho K Lenses
The growing adoption of advanced and innovative ortho k lenses is increasing the growth of the Orthokeratology Market. Ortho K lens is also known as corneal reshaping contact lenses to correct or control myopia. Ortho K lenses gently reshape the front surface of the eye cornea while they sleep. The patient enjoys clear vision during the day without glasses after removing the lenses. Corneal refractive therapy are brand of corneal reshaping lens which is technically different from orthokeratology but produces comparable results. A non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the curvature of cornea is corneal topography. Thus, increasing the growth of the Orthokeratology Market during the forecast period 2021-2026.
