Retina is a sensory membrane situated at the back of the eyeball. It consists of several layers and specialized cells known as photoreceptors. There are two types of photoreceptors in the human eye: rod and cone. Rod photoreceptor cells detect the motion and distinguish black and white vision and provide vision in low light. Cone photoreceptors detect the colors and provide vision in bright and medium light. Cones are placed at the concentrated small area of retina, while rods are placed throughout the retina. When cornea and lens direct the light to the photoreceptor cells, the light energy is converted to chemical energy and transmitted to the brain through optic nerve. According to ophthalmologists, common retinal disorders include macular edema, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, central serious retinopathy, solar retinopathy, and others.

Retinal imaging devices assist eye care practitioners to identify, evaluate, document, and conduct treatment for retinal disorders. The advanced retinal imaging devices can image up to 0 to 200 degrees of the retina through a single capture. Full spectrum white light is utilized in conventional devices; however, advanced retinal imaging devices use low-powered laser light.
The global retinal imaging devices market is primarily driven by increase in incidence of retinal disorders across the world, high rate of diagnosis and treatment of retinal disorders, technological advancements, and improving health care infrastructure. However, stringent regulatory landscape and laws on intellectual property rights are expected to restrain the market. Mergers and acquisitions among major players and increase in R&D investment are projected to drive the global retinal imaging devices market during the forecast period.
