Similarly, the foundation of new organizations such as Lions KidSight USA (founded -2014), the U.S. based community that helps in eye screening of children. This organization works in partnership with Plusoptix Inc., a vision screener manufacturer, for providing its services of eye screening for students. The development of such organization, which aims to diagnose eye problems in students is expected to drive demand for spot vision screeners.

Furthermore, governments focusing on development of spot vision screener technology is also expected to increase demand for advanced technology devices for eye screening. For instance, in 2015, the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Optometry updated their vision screening policy statements to include a recommendation to use photoscreening for children aged 1 to 3 years.

Global Spot Vision Screener Market - Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The spread of the novel coronavirus has hampered growth of the healthcare industry. In December 2019, in China’s Wuhan City, a cluster of pneumonia cases were reported by Chinese health authorities. The pneumonia causative agent was identified as a novel coronavirus named COVID-19. This virus spread rapidly across the globe, thus causing a concerning number of fatalities. In March, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 as a global pandemic and suggested implementation of strict measures to minimize the spread of this disease. The pandemic has slowed down growth of the healthcare sector and has led to a disturbance in the supply chain.

Moreover, governments across various countries have implemented nationwide lockdowns to curb the spread of COVID-19. Similarly, in various countries across the world, healthcare companies are facing problems of continuing its supply chain operations. The slowdown of the healthcare companies’ supply chain has also impacted growth of the global spot vision screener market.

The global spot vision screener market is estimated to be valued at US$ 193.9 million in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period (2020-2027).

Global Spot Vision Screener Market – Regional Analysis

On the basis of region, the global spot vision screener market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

North America is expected to witness significant growth in the global spot vision screener market, owing to increasing adoption of vision screening for eye diseases in this region. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated data of 2019, less than 15% of all preschool children receive an eye exam and less than 22% of preschool children receive some type of vision screening in the U.S. According to the American Optometric Association, 80% of a child’s learning is visual, hence, detection of vision problems is considered important.

Europe is also expected to witness potential growth in the global spot vision screener market, owing to rising geriatric population, and the increasing usage of computers and mobile screens are major factors driving growth of the Europe spot vision screener market. According to a 2018 study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), in Europe, by 3 years of age, 68% of children regularly use a computer and 54% undertake online activities. As per the same source, in 2016, it was estimated that the adults in the U.K. spend around 4 hours 45 min per day using digital media.

Global Spot Vision Screener Market- Competitive Landscape

Key players operating in the global spot vision screener market include Hillrom, Essilor International S.A., OCULUS Surgical, Inc., FIM Medical, Adaptica S.r.l., Honeywell International Inc., and Plusoptix Inc.

Spot vision screener is a handheld, portable device designed to help users quickly and easily detect vision issues in patients above 6 months of age. The spot screener scans eyes from a 3-foot distance. The device has touch-screen display, is easy-to-use, and allows one-touch activation, simple management of patient data entry, and easy configuration for both vision screening and auto refraction applications. The device is used for detection of different eye related indications such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (blurred vision), anisometropia (unequal refractive power), strabismus (eye misalignment), and anisocoria (unequal pupil size). The U.S Medicare provides reimbursement for spot vision screener devices. The purchase cost of the device is around US$ 7,490, and around US$ 2,500 is average service charges required on an annual basis. The favourable reimbursement and increasing healthcare expenditure by developed and merging economies are expected to drive growth of this market over the forecast period.
