Fundus photography constitutes one of the indispensable ocular technologies that facilitate imaging of retina and sub retina covering the inner surface of the eye. Fundus cameras enable the diagnosis and monitoring of several ocular disorders such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and age related macular degeneration. Fundus cameras are usually used by optometrists, ophthalmologists and other trained medical professionals. These devices are classified on the basis of diagnostic processes into mydriatic and non-mydriatic fundus cameras. Global fundus cameras market is highly saturated owing to technological obsolescence especially with reference to mydriatic fundus cameras. However, manufacturers are focusing on development of robust and high performance fundus cameras with improved quality, for instance development of hybrid cameras is one of the revolutionary technologies that have been evolved over the past few years. Hybrid cameras comprises both optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fundus photography and hence is advantageous as compared to individual type of fundus photography. Hence, all these developments will accelerate the market growth in near future.
