According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global LASIK eye surgery market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the assessment period due to the increase in vision impairments due to environmental pollution. LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), also known as laser vision correction or laser eye surgery, is a type of refractive surgery performed to correct hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism.

LASIK offers a long-lasting alternative to contact lenses and glasses for most people.

Drivers and constraints affecting the market

The LASIK eye surgery market is expanding remarkably due to the emergence of vision problems around the world. According to the World Health Organization, around 285 million people worldwide suffer from visual impairments. Changes in environmental factors, such as changing lifestyles where people focus more on work and study and spend less time outdoors, also affect vision. Companies are also investing more in research and development activities to introduce better treatment facilities for vision problems. For example, in 2015 Alcon Laboratories Inc. launched the next generation hydrogen peroxide lens care solution, AOSEPT PLUS with HydraGlyde solution. Government support is also driving the growth of the market further. In addition, the growing population along with an unhealthy lifestyle has led to the introduction of electronic devices such as mobile phones. This has increased the prevalence of vision problems such as farsightedness, astigmatism and nearsightedness. To fix such problems, people are turning to LASIK surgery which is driving the market growth.

On the other hand, high treatment costs are expected to delay global market growth in the coming years. Its technical complexity also poses challenges for the doctors who perform such operations. It can also cause permanent vision damage. Such factors are likely to hamper market growth.
