LONDON, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Ophthalmic Devices, Diagnostics and Surgical Equipment: Global Markets

http://www.reportbuyer.com/pharma_healthcare/medical_devices/ophthalmic_devices_diagnostics_surgical_equipment_global_markets.html

INTRODUCTION

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This BCC report, Ophthalmic Devices, Diagnostics and Surgical Equipment: Global Markets, provides a comprehensive description of conditions and diseases that affect the eye and products used for eye treatment. This report includes information regarding the incidence and prevalence of eye conditions and risk factors associated with those conditions. Major product segments with in-depth market and competitive analysis are included in each segment and discuss ophthalmic devices, diagnostics and surgical procedures. Research and development activities are included with an emphasis on segments that offer benefits to aging populations.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

The aging of the population around the world will result in a rapid increase in the over age 65 population by 2030, a population that accounts for the highest incidence and prevalence of eye conditions and diseases. This sets the stage for increased research and development activities, speedy market approvals and higher awareness through education. Additionally, current market competitors will endure pressure from the industry to continually provide advances in therapies and equipment and to compete with emerging competitors, who focus significantly on unmet needs of the ophthalmic industry, including treatments for back of the eye conditions. The industry is likely to experience a burst of new products and heavy competition as the ophthalmic market advances.

SCOPE AND FORMAT

This BCC report is designed to be a helpful business tool to provide a thorough evaluation of the ophthalmic device, diagnostic and surgical market. The geographical scope is worldwide, with an emphasis on major markets such as the United States. This report identifies products by product type and, where applicable, by disease type.

Within the global market of ophthalmic devices, diagnostics and surgical equipment, three general areas are identified, with appropriate subsegments discussed. These include:
• Ophthalmic diagnostic market.
- Ophthalmic imaging equipment.
- Nonimaging exam diagnostics.
- Other diagnostic equipment and peripherals.
• Contact lens market.
- Soft lenses.
- Gas permeable lenses.
- Cosmetic lenses.
- Shaping lenses.
• Ophthalmic surgical market.
- Ophthalmic lasers, phacoemulsification systems and related equipment.
- Intraocular lenses.
- Shunts and other drainage devices.
- Other surgical devices and equipment.

Additionally, the market is analyzed in terms of use and focuses on specific diseases and conditions such as cataract treatments, glaucoma treatments and refractive treatments. Each segment provides detailed information of products, current market estimates and market forecasts.

METHODOLOGY

The information for this BCC report was obtained through primary and secondary data collection methods. Primary methods included interviews with key executives, product managers and clinical specialists involved in the ophthalmic drug industry. Secondary methods included published literature in the areas of ophthalmic devices and equipment, investment reports, company literature and various medical and business journals.

All market data pertains to the global market at the manufacturers' level. Data are expressed in current U.S. dollars. The base year of the report is 2012, with historical data provided for 2010 and 2011 and forecast data provided through 2017. Historical, base year and forecast data are provided for each market segment of the report. Competitor market shares are provided for each market segment for the 2012 base year.
