The burden of ophthalmic disorders has increased in both developing and developed economies. Based on data from the National Eye Institute, common vision problems impact over 11 million Americans. This rising incidence of eye disorders will contribute to the popularity of LASIK eye surgery. By 2050, over 50% of the world’s population will suffer from myopia, as per estimates from the International Myopia Institute. This is expected to augment the demand for corrective eye surgery worldwide.
 

A major factor leading to the high incidence of ocular and ophthalmic conditions, including cataracts and refractive errors, is aging. Moreover, a surge in screen time has also raised the prevalence of refractive vision defects, especially among adults and youngsters. As a result, the acceptance of the LASIK procedure will rise, since laser surgery can reduce the symptoms associated with age-related macular degeneration and other eye diseases.
 

High awareness about the risks of eye surgeries may hamper LASIK eye surgery devices market share

Despite the favorable business environment, the rising awareness about the complications of LASIK eye surgery may impede industry expansion globally. Common issues associated with eye surgeries include overcorrections, under-corrections, regression, astigmatism, rise in intraocular pressure, and vision loss. Temporary visual problems such as dry eyes and glare are also side effects of this surgical procedure, which may hinder the development of LASIK eye surgery devices.

Impact of COVID-19 on LASIK Eye Surgery Devices Market Outlook

In the initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic, patient visits and surgical procedures related to ophthalmology reduced considerably. According to a population-based study in Ontario, over 56,900 patients were on the waiting list for elective ophthalmic surgery as of March 2020. The rate of elective surgeries also decreased by 80% in May 2021 as compared to a year earlier. However, with the gradual ease of restrictions and the increasing backlog of ophthalmic surgeries, LASIK eye surgery devices industry is expected to witness an upsurge over the forthcoming years.
