The contact lens market contributes the highest amongst the ophthalmology devices market with a share of ~ 48%, followed by IOLs (Intraocular lens) with 28%.

The U.S. commands the largest share of the global ophthalmology devices market, primarily due to high patient awareness, quality of healthcare services, and systemized reimbursement structure. Technological developments such as femtosecond lasers are also gaining popularity due to the greater patient comfort they facilitate over conventional lasers; and because they enable customized treatment based on the individual eye dimensions of each patient.

The ophthalmology devices market witnessed an increase in new product launches in the year 2009. The total number of ophthalmology device patents filed globally dipped in the year 2008, and rose again in 2009 due to increased R&D activity in the market.
