Ophthalmology market has witnessed positive growth in number of consultations, number of surgeries, revenue from consultation and revenue from surgeries in the past five years due to increasing old age population, increasing exposure to electronic devices, increasing diabetic population and increasing air pollution. Many NGOs have taken up the responsibility of spreading awareness about eye health. Eyes Mo, Care Mo celebrated Philippines’s first ever National Eye Care Awareness Month that was dedicated to spread awareness about causes and ways to fight eye related issues.

Major constraints faced by the ophthalmology market have been high operational cost, difficulty in ease of doing business, complicated government policies and shortage of ophthalmologist. Philippines Ophthalmology Market is growing at promising rate currently placed in growth stage. Government’s National Health Insurance program’s coverage increased from 75% in 2012 to 93% in 2018 and is expected to increase at a faster rate in future. The revenue generated from eye surgeries & eye care consultations in the review period increased registering a CAGR of close to 10% and 8% respectively during last 5 years. Hospitals and clinics use the modern equipment’s and technologies so as to keep up with the international standards. The medical equipment device market is import driven; equipment’s are imported from Japan, China and Korea. By using the modern technology eye clinics and hospitals have managed to keep 90% of their patients as day care patients. Awareness about eye health is spread by various campaigns organized by the government and the NGOs. In 2014, Philippines celebrated its first ever National Eye Care Awareness Month through Eyes Mo, Care Mo, in this campaign awareness about causes and ways to fight the 5 signs of EYEritation—Sore Eyes, Itchy Eyes, Red Eyes, Watery Eyes and Dry Eyes was generated among the Filipinos.
