Global Orthokeratology Lens Market Overview


Orthokeratology Lens Market Size was valued at USD 2.35 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 2.53 Billion in 2023 to USD 4.61 billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.8% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032). The growing prevalence of refractive errors, rising diagnosis of conditions such as hyperopia, myopia, astigmatism, and others, and increased research and development activities by major players are the key market drivers boosting the orthokeratology lens market share.Orthokeratology Lens Market OverviewSource: Primary Research, Secondary Research, MRFR Database, and Analyst Review


Orthokeratology Lens Market Trends



  • Changning consumer preference for non-surgical vision correction procedures to drive market growth


Orthokeratology lenses are special gas-permeable lenses suitable for all age groups and designed for corneal reshaping. These lenses can be worn overnight, preventing patients from wearing spectacles or contact lenses during the day. Several recent studies have found that orthokeratology treatment is one of the effective ways to slow myopia progression in children. These lenses are also referred to as daytime ortho-K lenses by some healthcare professionals in some nations. Several vision correction surgeries are available for refractive errors like myopia and astigmatism, such as refractive lens exchange, LASIK, and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). However, some of the adverse effects of these operations, such as dry eye, itching, blurred glare, vision, and halos around lights at night, cause a decline in the population's use of these procedures. For instance, a 2020 article states that 20–40% of LASIK patients experience dry eye and itching after the operation, and 20% of LASIK patients have trouble with contrast, glare, and halos around light at night.


One of the significant factors influencing children's preference for orthokeratology lenses is the limited options available to them for correcting refractive errors. Another factor contributing to children's increased use of these lenses is eliminating the need to wear contact lenses and glasses during the day. Additionally, improvements in technology have made it easier to fit lenses, which has helped the general public become more aware of and adopt lenses, thereby driving the orthokeratology lens market CAGR. For example, Scotlens, a specialty contact lens manufacturer, collaborated with Avizor in September 2021 to introduce a new unboxing perspective for ortho-K lenses to raise awareness about the option. As a result, the increasing number of product approvals and product launches by major market players, as well as the increasing technological developments and benefits of these lenses, are expected to boost the orthokeratology lens market revenue growth opportunities for non-surgical refractive error correction procedures.


Orthokeratology Lens Market Segment Insights


Orthokeratology Lens Materials Insights


Based on materials, the Orthokeratology Lens Market segmentation includes silicone acrylate, fluorosilicone acrylate, and fluorocarbon acrylate. The silicone acrylate segment held the majority share in 2022, contributing to around ~44-49% of the Orthokeratology Lens Market revenue. Silicone is highly flexible, making it a popular material for contact lenses. The production of silicone acrylate lenses has been pushed by fluoro acrylate's high refractive index and other advantages. Thus, various benefits of silicone acrylate orthokeratology lenses are anticipated to boost the segment's growth. Increased FDA approvals for orthokeratology lenses used to treat refractive disorders and technical advancements in lens design and materials are expected to drive global market growth.


Orthokeratology Lens Applications Insights


Applications have bifurcated the Orthokeratology Lens Market data into myopia, hyperopia, and others. The myopia segment dominated the market in 2022 and is likely to be the faster-growing segment in the forecasted period 2022-2030. Myopia is becoming more common in children and the elderly worldwide, and patients are choosing non-invasive techniques over refractive surgeries, helping the segment grow. According to the journal Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science, approximately 1.9 billion people have myopia, or nearly 27.08% of the global population. Myopia will rank among the major factors contributing to permanent blindness worldwide over the upcoming years. Orthokeratology lenses are popular among children owing to the higher prevalence of myopia in this age group. According to the WHO, 52.13% of people are predicted to have myopia by 2050. Orthokeratology lenses help slow myopia progression, especially in children, while promoting the segmental market growth.


January 2022: Euclid Systems Corporation collaborated with the Global Specialty Lens Symposium to raise myopia awareness and educate eye care providers (ECPs) about advanced orthokeratology lenses and proactive myopia management.


Orthokeratology Lens End Users Insights


Based on End Users, the global orthokeratology lens industry has been segmented into hospitals and ophthalmology clinics. Hospitals held the most prominent segment revenue share in 2022. Investment opportunities in orthokeratology lenses are continually increasing in hospitals due to the growing incidence of eye-related illnesses like glaucoma and cataracts, driving the market growth. The increased adoption of orthokeratology lenses in hospitals owing to advanced treatment facilities is further expected to fuel the segment's growth. However, the use of orthokeratology lenses may differ between hospitals worldwide, limiting market expansion. Additionally, several hospitals are opening combined ophthalmic centers for many refractive conditions, which is predicted to accelerate the segment's growth.

The orthokeratology lens industry is expected to experience a significant CAGR in the ophthalmology clinics segment throughout the forecasted period. Individuals prefer ophthalmology clinics due to their low patient costs. The increasing number of patients with vision loss is expected to increase the demand for ophthalmology clinics. The growing number of ophthalmologists in emerging economies is expected to increase demand for ophthalmology clinics, boosting segment growth. Besides, increasing access to advanced ophthalmology-related technology solutions in ophthalmologic clinics in several underserved economies is expected to propel segment growth. Growing competition in ophthalmological clinics globally is expected to drive demand for orthokeratology lenses over the forecast years.


Orthokeratology Lens Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The North American Orthokeratology Lens market accounted for USD 1.07 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to exhibit a significant CAGR growth over the study period. Recent advancements in orthokeratology lenses, the introduction of overnight ortho-K lenses, and flexibility and choice are some factors driving North American market growth. The increasing number of cases of visual impairment, combined with the increased use of orthokeratology lenses in Canada and the United States, is expected to create numerous growth opportunities throughout the region. Moreover, major US market players such as Johnson & Johnson Vision, CooperVision, and Bausch & Lomb Inc are expected to increase their regional orthokeratology lens market share in the coming years.
