Recommended Conferences for Amblyopia


As per the report Eye Disorders has 14 Journals, 11 upcoming Conferences, 494 Conference proceedings, 190 Speakers related to the eye and vision. Amblyopia is the medical term used when the vision in one of the eyes is reduced because the eye and the brain are not working together properly. The eye itself looks normal, but it is not being used normally because the brain is favoring the other eye. This condition is also sometimes called lazy eye. Amblyopia can result from any condition that prevents the eye from focusing clearly. Amblyopia can be caused by the misalignment of the two eyes—a condition called strabismus. With strabismus, the eyes can cross in (esotropia) or turn out (exotropia). Occasionally, amblyopia is caused by a clouding of the front part of the eye, a condition called cataract. A common cause of amblyopia is the inability of one eye to focus as well as the other one. Amblyopia can occur when one eye is more nearsighted, more farsighted, or has more astigmatism. These terms refer to the ability of the eye to focus light on the retina. Farsightedness, or hyperopia, occurs when the distance from the front to the back of the eye is too short. Eyes that are farsighted tend to focus better at a distance but have more difficulty focusing on near objects. Nearsightedness, or myopia, occurs when the eye is too long from front to back. Eyes with nearsightedness tend to focus better on near objects. Eyes with astigmatism have difficulty focusing on far and near objects because of their irregular shape.

Scope and Importance:

The field of ocular treatment & care is growing rapidly and its development is making tremendous impacts in medical sciences and pharmaceuticals. The importance and significance can be gauged by the fact that it has made huge advancements over the course of time and is continuing to influence various sectors.  With obstacles in vision starts and are normal part of aging. These changes alone cannot stop you from enjoying an active lifestyle or stop you from maintaining your independence. In fact, you can live an active life well into your golden years without ever experiencing severe vision loss. But as you age, you are at higher risk of developing age-related eye diseases and conditions. These include: age-related macular degeneration, cataract, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, low vision and dry eye. Common ways to treat eyes are by (1) Patching: The treatment involves with wearing a strong patch over the stronger eye. (2) Atropine a drug that blurs the vision is used for the stronger eye. Following the treatments such as patching and using atropine stimulates the vision of the weaker eye. By helping in the stimulation through patching and atropine at the right age and following it over the period of right time would help the children overcome amblyopia. The current research are widely carried out in major connections between the eye and brain during the visual system development and ways to treat amblyopia for adults.

Market Analysis:

The United States eye equipment market, currently valued at $15 billion, is expected to reach a value of $19 billion by 2014. The largest segment of the market, contact lenses, is projected to increase at a CAGR of 3.3%, rising to more than $7.7 billion in 2014, after being valued at nearly $6.6 billion in 2009. The second-largest segment, the ophthalmic surgical market, is estimated at $5.5 billion in 2009, and is expected to increase at a five-year CAGR of 5.9% to reach more than $7.3 billion in 2014. The ophthalmic diagnostics segment is expected to reach $4 billion in 2014, after rising at a CAGR of 5.2% from its 2009 value of nearly $3.1 ­billion. The aging of the population worldwide will result in a rapid increase in the 65-and-over population by 2030, a population that accounts for the highest incidence and prevalence of eye conditions and diseases.
