Torrance, California, USA -As per MarkWide Research’s latest study, Keratometer market is expected that this industry will continue to grow moderately.

An ophthalmometer, sometimes known as a keratometer, is a medical instrument used to measure the curvature of the anterior surface of the cornea, a part of the eye that accounts for two-thirds of the eye’s optical power, in order to prevent vision loss. A keratometer is an instrument that facilitates the rapid and convenient measurement of the diameter of the cornea. This measurement permits the ophthalmic professional to judge the volume of the eyeball based on the diameter of the cornea. In this regard, the prescriptions of the spectacles are particularly relevant because the vertex of the cornea and the vertex of the lens should match in order to achieve the best results.

One of the main uses of keratometers is for the diagnosis of astigmatism, a condition in which the eye’s lens or cornea has an imperfect curvature due to an imperfection in the curvature of the eye’s lens. There are three types of astigmatism that can occur in people: myopic astigmatism, hyperopic astigmatism, and mixed astigmatism, and the majority of people are born with astigmatism, or it is either caused by eye injuries or diseases. It is possible to correct astigmatism, with glasses, corrective lenses, as well as refractive surgery, if it is a rectifiable condition. A number of trends have contributed to the positive growth of the global keratometer market in the past few years.

  • It is anticipated that the global market for keratometers will grow due to several factors, including an increase in astigmatism prevalence, an increase in the aging population pool, a greater awareness of astigmatism, and a number of innovations in keratometers which are enabling efficient diagnosis, increased access to keratometers, a higher demand for preventive eye care, and an increase in the number of government and non-governmental initiatives that are aimed at promoting eye health. 
  • Approximately one in three Americans suffers from astigmatism, and more than 150 million of them wear corrective eyewear to help them see better. In fact, the American Academy of Ophthalmology reports that astigmatism affects one in three Americans. 
  • To determine the need for corrective eyewear, regular eye examinations using keratometers are also required in the case of astigmatism. There are a number of trends that, along with the other factors, are positively contributing to the growth of the market


The global auto keratometer market is being driven by a number of key drivers and restraints.

  • Myopia and other forms of refractive error are on the rise, as well as the launch of ophthalmic instruments that are accurate in their readings, and the advancement of technology are some of the major driving factors for this market. 
  • A further factor that will likely drive the auto keratometer market in the future is the increased awareness regarding astigmatism and its diagnosis. 
  • As ophthalmology clinics continue to grow in developing regions and auto keratometers become more accurate, the market for auto keratometers is predicted to grow at a faster pace. 
  • There are currently a number of treatments available for the condition of astigmatism, such as lenses and Lasik surgery, which should reduce the complications associated with it.
  • A new generation of auto keratometers has been introduced to the market that incorporates an auto refractor to enhance efficiency, which has resulted in enhanced accuracy and has enhanced demand for these auto keratometers. 
  • There is also an increase in the number of patients undergoing post-cataract surgery and those suffering from pre-existing astigmatism conditions, which is another major factor which contributes to the growth of the market worldwide.
  • Technology advancements in the field of ophthalmic equipment are one of the major factors that act as a catalyst for the growth of the global keratometer market. 
  • As a result of the ever increasing adoption of contact lenses and spectacles, another factor that boosts the growth of the global keratometer market is the increasing demand for these devices. 
  • There are a number of factors that contribute to the growth of the global keratometer market, including the smooth operation of the device, the robustness and the durability of the device. The high cost of the device is a major factor holding back the growth of the global keratometer market

It is anticipated that the market for keratometers will be experiencing a significant increase during the forecast period, owing to the increased awareness of the population towards their health, specifically when it comes to their eye health. Additionally, it is expected that the growth of the keratometer market will be supported by the opportunities in emerging markets. In addition to the growing application of keratometers in hospitals, clinics, and research laboratories, the market for keratometers is also growing due to the increasing number of applications.


  • After the first COVID-19 conference took place in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, the conference has swept across the globe in a matter of days with a fast pace. 
  • As far as confirmed cases and reported deaths are concerned; in terms of the American, Indian, Brazilian, Russian, French, British, Turkish, Italian, and Spanish countries, they are among the worst affected. 
  • Lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns have all been attributed to the COVID-19 in various countries, affecting economies and industries. 
  • The closure of several factories and plants all over the world has caused the global supply chains to be affected, negatively affecting the manufacturing, delivery schedules, and sales of products on the global market as a result. 
  • It has already been announced that a few companies may suffer delays in delivering their products and may experience slumps in sales in the future as a result. This report, which is based on the current state of the market, further assesses how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect the overall market in the coming years, as well as giving more accurate and reliable projections. 
  • Furthermore, the global travel bans imposed by countries throughout Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America are impacting the opportunity for business collaboration and partnerships.

It is believed that the high cost associated with keratometers and the errors in keratometry are two of the factors which limit the growth of the global keratometers market. During the forecast period, the global keratometers market is expected to be hindered by a number of factors that could hamper its growth.
