Widefield Imaging Devices Market Size is estimated to be valued at USD 548.5 million in 2021 and is poised to grow at a significant CAGR of 8.4% over 2022-2028. Upgrades in telemedicine and portable camera technology have made these devices easier to use and more accessible, and other new breakthroughs are expected to grow the market for wide-field imaging devices. Widefield imaging techniques may have a substantial impact on patient care in the future, but more study is needed to establish the clinical importance of peripheral data and to solve widefield imaging’s optical flaws. Nonetheless, this fascinating technology has attracted people’s interest. As the area of retinal imaging advances, understanding of ocular disease processes improves. Newer technologies, which address the need of ophthalmologists towards achieving the proper diagnosis and appropriate management of disease entities, have helped improve the patient care and management ultimately in our current ophthalmic practice.
