Report Digest


Global orthokeratology market is expected to have a steady growth at a significant CAGR. The market is subjected to grow at a steady rate in 2021, over 2020.

Orthokeratology, also called as Overnight vision correction refers to the use of gas-permeable contact lenses temporarily reshaping the cornea to reduce refractive errors such as myopia, hyper myopia and astigmatism. It is a process in which the epithelial cells adjust growth as per presence of a foreign material. The mechanism behind the process is that cornea having 60% of eye’s focussing power is sensitive to small changes. Thus, a specially shaped lens can be used to lightly press the cornea, helping it to reshape for focussed vision.

Prevalence of Myopia among younger generation

Cases of Myopia and high myopia are increasing globally at a significant rate. High myopia is the second largest cause of visual impairment among patients. Myopia can even complicate to cataract eventually leading to blindness. Young people whose cases of myopia are increasing are inclined towards orthokeratology lenses. All these factors are collectively increasing the demand for orthokeratology.
