Many eye diseases have no early symptoms. They may be painless, and you may see no change in your vision until the disease has become quite advanced. Eye disease may lead to various eye conditions like Absence of eye or eyes (anophthalmos), Frequent Blinking (cranial nerve palsy, blepharospasm, Parkinson's disease eye), Bloodshot eye, Blurred vision (myopia/hyperopia), Bump on eye (papilloma, sty, milia), Cloud shape in vision, Crossed eyes, Distorted vision, Discharge, Floater in vision, Iris defect, Lazy eye and many more. There can me many reasons for the cause of eye diseases such as:
• Presbyopia -- difficulty focusing on objects that are close. This problem often becomes noticeable in your early to mid-40s.
• Cataracts -- cloudiness over the eye lens, causing poor nighttime vision, halos around lights, and sensitivity to glare. Cataracts are common in the elderly.
• Glaucoma -- increased pressure in the eye, which is most often painless. Vision will be normal at first, but over time you can develop poor night vision, blind spots, and loss of vision to either side. Glaucoma can also happen suddenly, which is a medical emergency.
• Diabetic eye disease
• Macular degeneration -- loss of central vision, blurred vision (especially while reading), distorted vision (straight lines will appear to be wavy), and colors that look faded.
• The most common cause of blindness in people over age 60.
• Eye infection, inflammation, or injury
• Floaters -- tiny particles drifting inside the eye, which may be confused with retinal detachment.
• Night blindness
• Retinal detachment -- symptoms include floaters, sparks or flashes of light in your vision, or a sensation of a shade or curtain hanging across part of your visual field.
• Optic Neuritis -- inflammation of the optic nerve from infection ormultiple sclerosis. You may have pain when you move your eye or touch it through the eyelid.
• Stroke or TIA
• Brain tumor
• Bleeding into the eye
• Temporal arteritis -- inflammation of an artery in the brain that supplies blood to the optic nerve • Migraine headaches -- spots of light, halos, or zigzag patterns that appear before the start of the headache
So the best possible ways to avoid eye diseases is to take precautions in your surroundings, Regular eye checkups from an ophthalmologist or optometrist are important. They should be done once a year if you are over age 65. Some experts recommend annual eye exams starting at an earlier age. How long you go between exams is based on how long you can wait before detecting an eye problem that has no symptoms. Your health care provider will recommend earlier and more frequent exams if you have known eye problems or conditions that are known to cause eye problems, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
Scope and Importance:
According to a study it is estimated that around 48% of world population is blind because of cataract and more than 60 million people suffer from glaucoma and it is estimated that the number would rise to 80 million by the end of 2020. Ageing population is the leading cause for refractive error problem in countries like the USA and Europe, it is noticed that the refractive error problem is mostly seen in population ageing more than 40 years.
According to WHO:
Changing trends in diet and lifestyle as well as increased longevity are growing the market for ophthalmological treatments: the global ophthalmic device market is expected to reach $28 billion by 2016 exhibiting a 2.5% compound annual growth rate from 2009 to 2016, according to GBI Research.
“The worldwide ophthalmic products market exceeds $22 billion (US) and is growing at more than 10% per year. Without the inclusion of consumer eye care products, the ophthalmic products market is roughly a $17 billion market.” Rising of demand for ophthalmic devices and expanding healthcare coverage in emerging economies will increase sales to 2024.The medical device market of Europe is mainly comprised of medical equipments such as consumables, orthopaedic devices, dental devices, respiratory devices, and ophthalmic devices which are manufactured in Germany, France, the UK, Italy and Spain. The demand for medical devices has been growing owing to a mounting awareness for early diagnosis and treatment of countless disease states in European countries. The key countries that have contributed significantly to the Europe medical devices market during 2008-2013 include Germany, UK , Spain and France. Germany is one of the major European markets and it has been observed that the country contributes immensely to the exports of medical devices. The overall medical devices market in Europe is projected to reach EUR ~ million in 2018, augmenting at a CAGR of 3.9% during 2013-2018.
