The global refractive surgery devices and equipment market was valued at about $0.9 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow to around $1.18 billion at a growth rate of around 7% through 2022.
A significant driving factor for the growth of refractive surgery devices and equipment market is an increase in the geriatric population worldwide with eye disorders. Age related macular degeneration is the major cause of loss of vision over the age of 65 years. There are many elderly people with refractive errors and requires immediate surgical care to cure visual impairment. The rising elderly population throughout the year increases the demand for refractive surgeries.
The refractive surgery devices (or) equipment market consists of sales of refractive surgery devices. The refractive surgery devices are used to improve or correct the refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), presbyopia or astigmatism. These devices include excimer lasers, YAG Lasers, microkeratomes and femtosecond lasers.
