Ophthalmology is the branch of science that is concerned with the physiology, anatomy and disease of the eye. Similarly, ophthalmic optics include any optics pertaining to eye such as contact lenses, intraocular lenses, spectacle lenses, refractive surgery and optical instruments that are used for the examination of eye. The ophthalmic optics instrument market has witnessed impressive growth in the past few years due to technological advancements which is helping the patients to regain their lost vision. Infections, inflammations and defects in the vision might result in partial or complete loss of vision. Thus, various ophthalmic instruments play a vital role in vision restoration as eyes are one of the most crucial sensory organs.
