European Eyecare in 2016

Back in July of last year, The Ophthalmologist partnered with Market Scope to provide ophthalmologists in Europe with an opportunity to benchmark their practices against those of their peers. The entire European subscription base of The Ophthalmologist, plus the European members of Practice-Scope (Market Scope’s online data portal) were invited to complete a survey about their practice, which asked questions like:

  • Which drugs do you prefer to use? 
  • How do you run your practice? 
  • What’s your monthly case load?
  • What techniques do you plan to adopt? 
  • Which IOLs do you offer? 

The survey ran between September and December 2015, and we published the results earlier this year (1). But eyecare is a dynamic market: how have things changed between then and now?

To answer this question, Market Scope and The Ophthalmologist repeated the exercise. The second European Ophthalmologist Survey went live on April 20, 2016, and closed on May 31, 2016. Ophthalmologists from nearly 20 countries responded, and their practices and preferences are represented in the survey results. The full analysis will be available online in September, but in the meantime, here’s a “sneak-peek” of some of the results. For the rest, watch this space…
