Market Scope uses a multi-source methodology when preparing our annual and quarterly reports. We incorporate surgeon surveys, our extensive database of physicians and surgery centers, disease models, clinical studies, financial reports, and more. Our wide-ranging knowledge of products and technology and our comprehensive network of industry contacts also contribute to our coverage on the ophthalmic industry.
On October 30, 2020, Market Scope invited 891 US ophthalmologists via our online survey portal to participate in part seven of a nine-part series of surveys to capture the impact of COVID-19 on ophthalmic practices. There were 117 participants, representing 33 states. This survey attracted a diverse group of doctors; 85 percent of respondents provide cataract surgery, 63 percent perform glaucoma surgery, 29 percent treat retina patients, and 31 percent provide cornea treatment. Most of these doctors offer multiple areas of treatment. All individual responses are kept strictly confidential, and we report only aggregate data.
Market Scope has been meticulously tracking the effects of COVID-19 on the ophthalmic industry since the onset. After surveying US practices throughout 2020, we recently began surveying in Europe to better understand the impact on patient backlog, surgical procedures, adoption of technology, patient selection, and much more more. Our "2021 European COVID-19 Ophthalmic Practice Impact Survey Report" summarizes those findings for industry and surgeons to gain valuable insight into the markets' recovery.
Market Scope surveyed 105 ophthalmologists and orthopedic surgeons on March 24, 2020, to measure the impact of COVID-19 on their surgical practices and perceptions on how long the effects of the pandemic would impact their practice. The results of this survey are included in this report, which is being offered free of charge as a courtesy to our clients.
