Surgical loupes are extensively used in dental, sclerotherapy and multiple surgical procedures to enhance visualization of tissues with improved magnification and to facilitate optimal instrument placement. Loupes are used during flap elevation, particularly during dissection of the pedicle and preliminary preparation of the recipient blood vessels, in delicate surgeries such as cardiac, vascular, plastic surgery etc.
According to World Health Organisation (WHO), the cardiovascular diseases are the primary cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVDs than from any other cause. Unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use and excessive consumption of alcohol has triggered the growth of number of diseases such as coronary heart diseases, diabetes, neurological disorders, musculoskeletal issues which have increased the demand of surgical procedures as a part of treatment.
The global surgical loupes market is observing significant growth owing to increasing number of surgeries, extensive usage of surgeries and increment in the prevalence of musculoskeletal ailments, incidences of huge CVDs population base and other diseases.

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is having a major clinical as well as organisational impact on the national health-care system worldwide, particularly in high-volume hospitals which are usually active for many essential clinical needs. There is shortage of the resources need to be conserved and diverted to the treatment of COVID-19 patients. There is a lot of impact on management of the urgent and emergent cases e.g. there is limited number of operating rooms (ORs) catering to only emergency surgeries. Limiting exposure of personnel to potential COVID patients and to limit use of PPEs is the key. Therefore, the number of new patients opting surgeries is expected to be negatively impacted as the only most acute surgeries are taking place. The impact will likely to be continue until the situation gets normalise.
