The global ophthalmic lasers market reflects an impressive growth owing to the growing prevalence of refractive errors across the world. According to a report, published by Fortune Business Insights, titled, “Ophthalmic Lasers Market: Global Market Analysis, Insights and Forecast, 2019-2026” the global market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.3% between 2019 and 2026. In addition to this, the global market was worth US$ 479.0 Mn in 2018 and is anticipated to reach US$ 722.0 Mn by 20226. The increasing incidence of ocular diseases, such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and refractive errors, is driving the ophthalmic lasers market. As the drugs for treating ocular diseases is less, the demand for ophthalmic laser devices has come into existence.
“Excimer Lasers Gain an Upper Hand Over Other Laser Types”
In 2018, the excimer lasers among other types of ophthalmic lasers covered 39.2% of the global Ophthalmic Lasers Market. These lasers are used for procedures such as refractive error correction. Recent technological advancements are expected to boost the segment growth during the forecast period. The demand for ophthalmic laser systems is likely to increase in hospitals, ophthalmic laser centers among others.

“Technological Advancements Such as Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty Propels Growth”
The burgeoning population suffering from ocular diseases and technological advancements in ophthalmology are contributing to the growth of the Ophthalmic Lasers Market. “These technologies are expected to enhance the accuracy of ophthalmic laser treatment,” stated a lead analyst at Fortune Business Insights. Technologies such as Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty or SLT are used to reduce the eye pressure in glaucoma. Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT is an imaging technique used to identify retinal disorders using quantitative data.
The rising awareness about the early diagnosis and preventive medical care are factors presenting a large patient pool suffering from ocular diseases. Furthermore, people across the world are increasingly becoming aware of the laser treatment methods for cataract, refractive errors, and glaucoma. This is further expected to stimulate growth in the Ophthalmic Lasers Market over the forecast years.
Contrary to this, there are countries where people aren’t completely aware of ophthalmic lasers. This is expected to impede the growth of the market in the forecast years. Also, the high costs associated with the ophthalmic laser procedures may hamper the market’ s growth. People in low-scale countries aren’t able to afford such treatment, which can eventually restrict the growth of the market to an extent.
