Malaysia ophthalmology market share, growth rate,

Growth in medical tourism coupled with rising diabetic population in the country is expected to drive Malaysia’s ophthalmology market: Ken Research

Main conclusions

Consultation fees for eye care services in public hospitals in Malaysia are as low as MYR 5, but start from MYR 80 in the case of private eye clinics/hospitals.
The number of patients undergoing their second cataract eye surgery in the same year accounted for 37.1% of the total cataract surgeries in 2020 in public hospitals in Malaysia.

Low Ophthalmologist compared to the population of the country, i.e. 1 Ophthalmologist for approximately 51,000 people in Malaysia in 2020.
Oculoplastic surgeries are growing in Malaysia due to greater awareness of aesthetics and cosmetics among Malaysians.
Growing Number of Insurance Partnerships with Eye Clinics: Eye clinics are partnering with major insurance companies or third-party administrators to provide claims related to cataract surgery. Health insurance companies offer some financial protection against medical and surgical expenses, which normally include cataracts and other eye conditions, but not refractive errors or other eye-related cosmetic surgeries. This has encouraged more people to seek private medical treatment, subsidized by insurance companies in Malaysia.

Overcoming Eye Treatment Challenges: Ophthalmologists in Malaysia face multiple challenges in the cataract procedure performed manually while creating an opening in the capsular bag. Advances in cataract surgery have been made in Malaysia by combining the Z8 femtosecond laser and FEMTIS, which has enabled cataract surgery with an unparalleled level of precision, more than 5 times better than manual processes.

Technological Advancements in the Malaysian Ophthalmology Market: The Malaysian ophthalmology market continuously witnesses changes in terms of technological advancements and developments in the detection and diagnosis of several eye disorders.

Some companies have introduced artificial intelligence (AI) systems to predict the risk of developing common eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, AMD and glaucoma to prevent blindness, while others have introduced software of neuro-rehabilitation, Vivid Vision, which uses virtual reality (VR) games to help binocular vision disorders such as lazy or strabismic eye, i.e. treating their conditions with therapies usual. Continuous developments in the country are helping Malaysia become the center of medical care for Malaysians and medical tourists.

Ken Research analysts in their latest publication “Malaysia Ophthalmology Market Outlook to 2025- Increase in ophthalmic surgeries and consultations driven by increasing proportion of aging population and technological advancements in ophthalmology” observed that the market for ophthalmology Ophthalmology in Malaysia has grown over the years due to increase in the number of ophthalmologists, increase in the number of clinics, increase in the healthcare budget and increase in the prevalence of non-communicable diseases such as hypertension and diabetes. The Malaysian ophthalmology market in terms of number of consultations and number of surgeries is expected to grow with a CAGR of 9.2% and 6.5% during the forecast period 2020-2025.
