Tonometers, also called handpieces, are mechanical devices that measure eye pressure and fluid flow through the cornea, lens, and retina. They play an important role in various fields of medicine such as ophthalmology, optometry, clinical measurements and medical lasers. The most common use of a tonometer is to measure intraocular pressure or the pressure of fluid in the eye, which occurs during normal vision.

Other uses include the diagnosis and treatment of certain eye diseases, to get an accurate nighttime tear pressure reading, and to prevent or detect possible internal bleeding or eye infections. Tonometry is a diagnostic test primarily used to detect glaucoma, one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide.
Rising incidence or prevalence of chronic eye diseases such as glaucoma is expected to propel the growth of the Tonometers market. For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 3 million people in the United States have glaucoma. It is the second leading cause of blindness in the world after cataracts. About 50% of people with glaucoma don’t know they have the disease.
Moreover, the growing geriatric population and increasing prevalence among people are expected to increase the growth of the Tonometers market. For example, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the world’s population aged 60 and over is expected to total 2 billion by 2050, up from 900 million in 2015.
However, the risks associated with using the tonometer are expected to restrain the growth of the tonometer market. For example, the use of a contact tonometer can lead to the risk of corneal infection or abrasion, while the non-contact tonometer has a low level of accuracy in measuring intraocular pressure.
The main market players are increasingly focusing on launching new and innovative products to strengthen their product portfolio or to improve their presence in the market. For example, in May 2020, Icare USA launched the ic200 portable tonometer for measuring intraocular pressure. It measures intraocular pressure without anesthetic drops, puffs of air or specialized skills.
