The North America region is the held the largest market for the vision care market during the forecast period. The United States held the largest market for vision care, and the market is expected to grow due to significant spending on eye health research, availability of advanced technologies, and introduction of innovative products. For instance, according to a study published by Population Reference Bureau in 2019, the number of individuals in US aged 65 and older is estimated to double from 52 million in 2018 to around 95 million by 2060, and the 65 and more age group’s share of the total population will increase from 16% to 23%. This aged population is highly vulnerable to eye defects. Refractive errors are the most frequent eye problems in the United States. Refractive errors include myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (distorted vision at all distances), and presbyopia that occurs between age 40–50 years. These can be corrected by eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. The National Eye Institute states that proper refractive correction could improve vision among 150 million Americans. Cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens and is the leading cause of blindness worldwide, and the leading cause of vision loss in the US. An intraocular lens is a tiny, artificial lens that is used during cataract surgery. The rising prevalence of cataract is driving the adoption of IOLs in the country. Refractive errors include, myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism, are common due to increasing stress on eyes and lack of nutrition in diet. As per the American Academy of Ophthalmology, more than 34 million Americans age 40 and older are myopic, or 23.9% of that population. In addition, refractive error occurs in about 1 in 3 people and may occur in combination with near or farsightedness. Eye conditions such as vision impairment, blindness, and poor vision amongst others are also a prominent factor to increase the adoption of vision care products in the US. For instance, according to a study conducted by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2020, an estimated 12 million people over age 40 in the US are suffering from vision impairment. Furthermore, according to the same study, an estimated 6.8% children below age 18 have diagnosed with some kind of eye condition in the US. Such massive prevalence of eye conditions in the US are likely to generate lucrative opportunity for the adoption of vision care products in the forecast period.

The market is this region is expected to grow significantly in countries such as ChinaJapan, and India. Alongside, the market is also likely to witness a substantial growth in South Korea and Thailand that are emerging as medical hubs in the region.

For instance, VISION 2020: The Right to Sight India is a collaboration between the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), Government of India (GoI), World Health Organisation-India office, International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) and aim of the program is to understand causes of visual impairment and integrate national eye health policies, plans and programs to enhance universal eye health.

The COVID-19 outbreak has disturbed various trades and businesses across the world. The hospital gowns are among the highly consumed hospital consumables. The hospitals utilize a larger quantity of hospital gowns during the COVID19 pandemic and for the general patients. Most of the region’s sectors are massively hit by the pandemic’s spread, with most of the nations being in lockdown. Routine healthcare services were cancelled, and patients were recommended to avoid hospital visits unless any medical emergency, to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission, leading to significant disruption to the provision of healthcare service and patient care. Ophthalmology represents one of the busiest and heavily outpatient-oriented specialties, with around 7.5 million outpatient appointments and over 500,000 surgical procedures being conducted every year in the United Kingdom. The lockdown has resulted in cancellation of thousands of ophthalmic visits and surgeries, this has potentially lead to permanent and significant harm to patient’s vision. Due to the lock down people are not able to travel from one place to the other. Air and sea transport is at standstill and people from the outlying islands are not able to visit the nearest centre for eye care. A few centers in the capital Male are offering online consultations to patients. However this has its limitations and healthcare professionals cannot do refractions online and a detailed anterior segment and posterior segment examinations is also not possible. Thus, COVID 19 is having a significant impact on the quality and quantity of eye care.
