Optometry and Vision Science is the experimental investigation of vision. For example, how human and non-human life forms process visual data, how cognizant visual discernment works in people, how to misuse visual observation for powerful correspondence, and how manufactured frameworks can do likewise assignments. Vision science covers with optometry. The social insurance calling worried with examination, conclusion, and treatment of the eyes and related structures, and with determination and adjustment of vision issues utilizing focal points and other optical guides. This range of exploration incorporates real highlights, for example, fringe vision and instruments of visual pathways. Today, there are an expected 180 million people all around who are outwardly hindered (under 20/60 in the better eye). Roughly 135 million have low vision (between 20/70 and 20/400). The rest of the 45 million are visually impaired (redressed visual sharpness of under 20/400 in the better eye) with 60 percent of these people living in India, China and sub-Saharan Africa. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), in spite of current intercessions, visual deficiency on the planet is expanding by 1 to 2 million cases for each year – the outcome is a "multiplying of world visual impairment by the year 2020 unless more forceful mediation is attempted."

Scope and Importance:

Optometry and Vision science is a broad and vibrant field that consists of multiple disciplines of basic, clinic and applied research. It covers array of research fields in optometry, biology, physics, physiology, psychology, engineering, healthcare, ophthalmology, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience, etc. The need for new knowledge and up-to-date skills in the vision science is great, and opportunities of teaching and research in academic, clinic, and industrial settings are blooming.

The organizing committee is gearing up for an informative conference program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from  all over the world.

Market Analysis Report

The Optometrists industry has exhibited growth over the past five years.  The elderly population's strong demand for cohesive eye exams has caused optometry services to expand, therefore including the monitoring of diabetes-related ocular complications, ocular infections, dry eye, glaucoma and ocular allergy treatments. While intensifying competition from optical retailers, such as online retailers, has cut into the industry's ancillary product sales (i.e. prescription eyewear), medical care services have still provided a boon to the industry. According to Vision Monday, optometrists perform 88.0 million refractive eye exams each year, which has maintained steady demand for industry services. Furthermore, about 65.0% of the world population requires vision correction products, thus spurring demand for comprehensive eye examinations; corrective eyewear and therapeutic eyecare services (i.e. vision therapy, visual rehabilitation, surgical consultations and preventive care). Differentiated patient relationships, service quality, earlier technology adoption, and clinical/product knowledge enable strong independent market share position.




Potential refractive surgery market size of 10+ million individuals expected to grow 2.6% annually to $2.1 billion by 2018.Corrective eye surgery (i.e. LASIK) is removing 500K patients annually from the 150 million vision correction population. Surgery volume to increase as quality improves and price continues to decrease (19 million LASIK surgeries through 2012).Growing popularity of corrective eye surgery would lead to higher patient pre/post-operative care volume for optometrists. Optometrists  currently seeking to expand scope of service to include vision correction surgery. Vision insurance plan reimbursements totaled 67% of OD revenue in 2011, with 80% of patients covered by a managed vision care plan. Accelerating demand for medical eye care services over 65 age group will grow 36.2% from 40.2 million in 2010 to 54.8 million in 2020.The vision care industry all together has boomed by around 35% for the past 10 years  Ie. 2007-2017 and  is comprised of a select set of national and regional chains and a large number of independent providers.
