Philippines Ophthalmology Market is expected to witness a sound growth in terms of number of consultations, number of surgeries, consultation revenue and surgery revenue registering a CAGR of close to 6%, 6%, 9% and 11% respectively during 2018-2023. Surging unhealthy lifestyle, expanding geographical presence of eye clinic and hospitals and ophthalmologist and implementation of Universal Health Care by the government will support the growth of the market. Increase in eye health awareness would act as a prime driver in the market. Since eye treatments are expensive, it has been projected that increase in household income along with increasing awareness towards eye care will lead to increase in number of eye consultation and eye surgeries during the period 2018-2023. Philippines signed Universal Health Care (UHC) Bill in March 2019 into law (Republic Act No. 11223) that automatically enrolls all Filipino citizens in the National Health Insurance Program and prescribes complementary reforms in the health system. It has been estimated that Philippines' population would increase to 117 million by the end of 2023E. Rising population would directly demand higher need for eye care. The old age population will also increase rapidly which will lead to further increase cataract surgeries which accounts for 70% of the total eye surgeries in the Philippines. According to a study conducted in February 2019, Philippines have topped the global list for time spent online with an average of 10 hours and two minutes of screen time via different media such as mobile phones, tablets and PCs every day. Moreover, in future it is expected that the number of hours spent on screen will increase due to increasing internet penetration in country, which will have harmful effects on the eyes and leads to prevalence of refractive errors such as Myopia and other eye ailments.

Diabetes has been one of the most prevalent ailments among the Filipinos, with 3,721,900 cases in adults (as of 2017) and this number is expected to increase in the next 5 years. Diabetes is one of the major causes of eye ailments like cataract and Glaucoma and therefore with an increase in number of diabetic patients, the market of Philippines Ophthalmology will also increase. Diabetic Retinopathy is an eye ailment that occur in diabetic patients who have been suffering from Diabetes for more than 15 years and it is also expected that number of patients having diabetic retinopathy will increase due to unhealthy eating habits and increasing consumption of aerated drinks and poor lifestyle of people. Cornea is the only part of the human body which receives oxygen supply directly from the atmosphere, whenever the human body is awake. Henceforth, with increasing air pollution in Philippines, there will be increase in number of patients suffering from an eye ailment such as Dry Eye. In future it is anticipated that, increasing exposure to ultraviolet rays will also impact the human eye and will lead to eye ailments such as Pterygium.

NCR and Calabarzon are expected to remain the dominant regions in terms of consultation revenue because of ease of doing business in these regions and also because new clinics and hospitals are expected to come up in these regions. Contribution of other remaining regions is expected to remain almost the same, but it is expected that by 2023 contribution of regions like Ilocos and Central Visayas will increase as the young graduates from ophthalmology institutes will plan to expand in these regions as the level of commercialization in these regions is expected to increase. Cataract is expected to remain the most prevalent eye ailment in Philippines, but it is projected that the number of percentage of cataract surgery will fall in next 5 years till 2023 on the back of expected awareness and technological improvements will lead to early detection of ailments. All this factors will help individuals to take precautions so that the ailment is cured without surgery. It is expected that overall percentage of surgeries for correction of refractive error will increase to 19% in 2023. It is expected that the number of hours spent on screen will increase due to increasing internet penetration in the country, which will have harmful effects on the eyes and leads to increase in prevalence of refractive errors such as Myopia and other eye ailments. Moreover many individuals who wear spectacles want to get rid of it for which they are undergoing Lasik surgeries.
