Diminishing visual functions with increasing age is a growing concern in the elderly population in  Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific region. An aging population is comparatively more susceptible than the younger population to many ophthalmology related health concerns. Increase in number of elderly populations will result in large patient population base with ophthalmic disorders requiring more ophthalmic surgeries thereby, fuelling the demand and growth of ophthalmic devices market.

The number of people suffering from several different types of ophthalmic disorders in Latin America region is increasing since last few years. According to the population-based survey,  (Rapid Assessment of Cataract Surgical Services [RACSS] and Rapid Assessment of Avoidable Blindness [RAAB]), approximately 60% of blindness in the region is due to cataract. Increase in number of people suffering from ophthalmic disorders and high need for treatment will augment the industry growth in the near future.

Every other type of ophthalmic surgical procedures poses one or the other type of risks. Several number of post operational risks associated with eye surgeries such as over- or under-correction of vision, visual aberrations, development of chronic dry and red eyes, infection, corneal estasia etc. Hence risk associated with ophthalmic surgeries will impede the growth of ophthalmic devices market.
