global refractive surgery devices market by summary

The surgical repair of refractive defects in the human eye is known as refractive surgery, a subspecialty of ophthalmology. Refractive surgery is a surgical treatment used to correct the refractive defect of the eye in order to improve vision without the use of eyeglasses. Refractive surgery makes it easier to correct vision and treat a variety of eye conditions that could otherwise result in blindness. According to the WHO, around 88.4 million people worldwide have untreated refractive errors, which are the primary cause of vision impairment and blindness. Ophthalmic surgeons today have a variety of refractive surgical techniques at their disposal to treat refractive defects on an individual basis. There are now methods for performing corneal and lens refractive surgery that consistently meets the requirements of safety, effectiveness, cost-efficiency, and predictability of the refractive outcome. For nearsighted patients, several refractive surgery procedures are estimated to lower the cornea's too-steep curvature, reducing the eye's focusing power.

Moreover, increasing adoption of advanced technologies for the development of surgical equipment is estimated to drive the market.

Rising muscular degeneration among geriatric population
A condition known as macular degeneration affects the retina, the light-sensitive lining in the back of the eye where images are focused. Vision becomes blurry when the macula, the part of the retina responsible for sharp central vision, ages. This may make it difficult to read and, for some people, result in a blurred or blind patch in the center of their vision. Non-exudative, also referred to as the "dry" form of age-related macular degeneration, is the most prevalent type and typically causes slow-progressing vision loss. The "wet" or exudative form of macular degeneration causes rapid and severe visual loss. Age is the main cause of age-related macular degeneration, but other factors including smoking and diet can also have an impact.

Existing Restraints

High cost of the equipment to impede the market growth
Increasing concerns about high prices and low acceptability in developing nations have a negative impact on the growth of the global refractive surgery devices market. Additionally, post-operation problems that cause visual loss or temporary vision impairment are estimated to hinder market growth. Lack of skilled refractive surgeons and uncertain policy changes are estimated to hamper the market growth.

Key Opportunities

Technological advancements are estimated to create immense opportunities
Refractive surgery, commonly known as laser surgery and vision correction surgery, corrects visual issues. Ophthalmic surgical procedures have experienced radical changes over time, leading to the introduction of highly advanced surgical instruments and systems. One of the most recent developments in refractive surgery is the use of surgical robots, which are extremely dependable, have excellent precision, and offer error-free processes. Thus technological advancements in refractive surgery devices market are estimated to create immense growth opportunities.

Market Segment Insights

The lasers segment held around 35% of the total market share in 2021

Based on products, the global refractive surgery devices market is segregated into aberrometer, microkeratomes, lasers, and others. The lasers segment held around 35% of the total market share in 2021 owing to technological advancement and increasing number of laser surgeries. There is a huge demand for LASIK and other laser refractive surgeries including LASEK and PRK. The use of eyeglasses and contact lenses to correct vision has decreased due to the high success rate of refractive surgery. In both LASIK and PRK, the cornea—the transparent outer layer of your eye that focuses light so you can see clearly—is reshaped with a laser. However, they handle things a little bit differently. LASIK causes the cornea to develop a little flap. The outer layer of the cornea is removed by PRK, although it eventually grows back.

The microkeratomes segment is projected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Growth of the segment is attributed to increasing frequency of eye illnesses and growing geriatric population. Additionally, technological developments have been made to the blade angle approach, blade oscillation frequency, and blade material in order to enhance flap cutting and reduce uneven astigmatism, which is estimated to drive the segment.

The aberrometer segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the coming years. Aberrometers are useful instruments in ophthalmology, particularly in refractive surgery since they use wavefronts to assess overall refractive error. Ophthalmologists can now precisely and properly evaluate corrective components of the eye than ever before due to technological advancement. In addition, improvements in wave-front aberrometer technology are undoubtedly the main factor boosting the market growth.
