The Global Orthokeratology Market, by Lens Type (Fluorosilicone Acrylate, Silicone Acrylate, Balafilcon, and Oprifocon A), by Application (Myopia, Hyperopia, Presbyopia, and Astigmatism), by Distribution Channel (Hospitals, Optometry Clinics, and Ophthalmology Clinics), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ 37.6 million in 2017, and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.0% over the forecast period (2018 - 2026), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Orthokeratology improves blurry vision without need of glasses, contact lenses, and corneal reshaping surgery such as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Moreover, it is cost-effective as compared to laser surgeries. Orthokeratology contact lenses are gaining significant traction with the method of slowing the progression of myopia in children. It is an alternative method to correct refractive errors using custom-designed rigid lenses, which modify the curvature of cornea for short duration. In recent years, the most common clinical application of ortho-k is for the reduction of myopia through corneal flattening.
According to the Association of Optometrists, most orthokeratology lenses are suitable for myopes between -1.00 and -4.00 and Cylinder value (cyls) to 1.50 and 0.75. Latest available product in market can correct high levels of myopia, potentially up to -10.00, and cyls to 2.50. In 2016, GP Specialists developed an advanced ortho-k lens iSee design shown to correct patients with high myopic powers. OrthoK in general is a safe option for myopia correction and retardation. However, the long-term success of the treatment depends on a combination of multiple factors including proper fitting of the lenses, rigorous compliance to lens use and care regimen, adherence to routine follow-ups, and timely and appropriate treatments to complications.
