Fundus Camera Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Fundus camera is a specialized device with low power microscope, with an attached camera used to observe the fundus part. Its optical design is based on the indirect ophthalmoscope. Fundus camera involves capturing photographs of the back of the eye, which is called as fundus. Fundus consists of 10 semi-transparent layers which serve specific function in the process of visual perception. The main structure that can be visualized on fundus camera are peripheral and central retina, optic disc and macula. Fundus camera are described by the angle view, firstly an angle of 30° is considered as normal angle of view, which creates a film image 2.5 times larger. Wide angle fundus camera capture images between 45°-140° though it provides proportionately less retinal magnification. There is also a narrow angle fundus camera which has angle view of 20° or less. Fundus camera are commonly used in area such as paired optic disk images, external photograph, fluorescein angiography, and fundus imaging.

Furthermore, fundus camera are used to diagnose various types of retinal disorders such as retinal detachment, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. It evaluates irregularities in fundus, monitors the progression of disease management and therapeutic outcome. Fundus camera is crucial to create a starting point to better interpret the disease’s progression that can help in applying appropriate treatment. Fundus camera is also useful to check whether new disease is affecting the fundus to further plan the management options to treat the retina. Images captured by fundus camera helps to compare photograph of patient from different timelines. Whereas fundus camera is quick and simple technique to use as the device is user-friendly and easy for practitioners to understand.
