Surgical safety glasses provides eye protection from blood splash, chemicals and laser lights during surgical procedures. These glasses protect eyes from harmful lights emitted during surgeries and maintain clear vision.
Market key trends:
One of the key trend gaining traction in the surgical safety glasses market size is the increasing adoption of specialist prescription and non-prescription surgical safety eyewear. Specialist prescription surgical safety eyewear provides the option of wearing prescription glasses during surgery without compromising safety standards. They are optically correct and Rx-corrected for surgeons requiring vision correction. In addition, they provide full protective coverage and side protection equivalent to standard safety eyewear. This growth in prescription surgical safety glasses is being driven by increasing awareness about risks to eyes during surgery and adoption of international safety standards.
Strength: Surgical safety glasses offer eye protection to surgeons and medical staff during surgeries. They help prevent injuries from laser beams, projectiles, chemicals and bodily fluids.
Weakness: Some surgical staff may find glasses uncomfortable to wear for long periods. Fogging of lenses can also pose issues.
Opportunity: Growing number of surgeries performed globally due to aging population and rising non-communicable diseases. Increasing focus on safety standards in hospitals also drives demand.
Threats: Availability of cheaper alternatives such as simple plastic glasses. Strict regulations surrounding sales of medical devices pose entry barriers for new players.
The global Surgical Safety Glasses market is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.7% over the forecast period, due to increasing surgical procedures worldwide. The market size for 2023 is estimated to be US$ 1.27 Bn.
