Key Market Trends

Laser Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth in the Forecast Years

Based on Surgical Devices, the market is segmented into Glaucoma Devices, Intraocular Lenses, Lasers and Other Surgical Devices. Laser eye procedure is intended to correct long-term vision problems in people. According to World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, in 2019, approximately 26.3 million people in the African region had a form of visual impairment. Laser can be applied to the iris or the trabecular meshwork to allow aqueous fluid to flow more effectively within the eye and drain better by the normal drainage channels within the eye. Laser vision correction has a very high success rate, and many patient’s reliance on eyeglasses or contact lenses is significantly reduced. Hence, owing to these factors, the segment is believed to witness rapid growth over the forecast period.
