The Lasik Eye Surgery Devices Market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period 2019 to 2026, expected to reach over US$ 2,161.8 Mn by 2026.
Lasik eye surgery is also referred to as laser eye surgery or laser vision correction it’s a type of refractive surgery for the vision errors including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis, it’s a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea with the help of a laser beam. The types of surgery held for vision correction include wavefront-optimized, wavefront-guided, and topography-guided. Additionally, the devices which help in the successful completion of these surgeries are termed as Lasik eye surgery devices. Dr. Stephen Brint and Dr. Stephen Slade from the US have performed first Lasik surgery in 1991 with an excimer laser particularly to correct vision problems, which was later promoted the industry growth.
The technological advancements in the healthcare sector of developed countries across the globe are primarily supporting market growth. The increasing number of people suffering from ophthalmic disorders due to unhealthy eating habits and changing lifestyles is propelling the market value. The increasing demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures across the globe coupled with the rising investment in the eye care sector by major players is bolstering the market value. The advantages associated with the minimally invasive surgical procedure such as minimum blood loss, less discomfort, smaller incision length, and shorter hospitalization stays are accelerating the market demand. Moreover, high accuracy associated with the femtosecond laser as compared to the excimer laser will likely provide opportunities over the forecast timeframe from 2019 to 2026.
On the other hand, the high cost of ophthalmic devices and the risk associated with eye surgeries are projected to hamper the market value. In addition, many cases associated with the bad vision and suicide after the Lasik eye surgery is further expected to exhibit negative impact on the market over the estimated period.
