Carl Zeiss faces New Competition from Haag-Streit, Nidek and Topcon in the $600 Million Diagnostic Ophthalmic Device Market, reports iData Research

As a result, new optometry practices are opening and existing practices are making investments to expand their capacity necessitating the purchase of biometry equipment.

Carl Zeiss has traditionally been the leader of both the U.S. and European optical biometry market with their pioneering device, IOL Master™. Currently, they hold over three quarters of the U.S. market for optical biometers. This represents a slight decline as their main co
