Ophthalmic Lasers Market - Global Industry Analysis 2025

Ophthalmic lasers are used for treatment of wide range of eye problems. Significant accuracy, low-cost, safe procedure, and convenient ophthalmic tools has increased the demand for ophthalmic lasers. Patients prefer ophthalmic lasers treatment due to pain free procedures and easy availability on an outpatient basis.

The main constituents of an ophthalmic laser system include foot pedal, laser console, and laser delivery system. The laser energy is transmitted to the patient’s eye by varied delivery systems, which are connected to the console by a fiber optic cable, an operating microscope, a slit lamp or an indirect ophthalmoscope. Ophthalmologists and eye surgery devices manufacturers are studying on medical uses of lasers, from cataract surgery to diagnostic retinal imaging. For instance, Sight Sciences, Inc., has its SLT laser device in clinical trials for study in patients with open angle glaucoma.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2010, around 39 million people were blind among 285 million visually impaired people. The World Health Assembly has approved Action Plan 2014–2019 for the universal access to eye health, a pathway for Member States, WHO Secretariat, and International Partners, with the aim of achieving a reduction of around 25% of visual impairments by 2019.

Increasing population suffering from age related macular degeneration are expected to fuel growth of the ophthalmic lasers market

According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2014, the uncorrected refractive errors was the prominent reason for moderate and severe visual impairment, globally. Cataracts is the main cause of blindness among people in underdeveloped countries and approximately 90% of visually impaired people live in emerging countries, indicating need of ophthalmic treatments. According to an estimation by CDC, the total number of cataract patients is expected to increase to 30.1 million by 2020.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2015, around 11 million people in the U.S., aging 12 years and above, have vision impairment, which could be improved by correcting refractive errors. Moreover, around 3.3 million people in the U.S., aged 40 years and above were estimated as legally blind or with low eye functioning.

Diabetes is a major cause of retinopathy and rising awareness among the population towards solutions for visual impairment, easy procedure of the surgery, increasing government initiatives are some of the factors driving growth of the ophthalmic lasers market. According to World Health Organization (WHO), the number of people with diabetes was estimated to around 422 million in 2014 and is expected to increase in the near future.

Lack of healthcare facilities in emerging countries and aversion in population for laser surgery are the factors hindering growth of the ophthalmic lasers market. According to International Council of Ophthalmology, in 2012, around 12,000 ophthalmologists were accounted for over 1 billion population, coming down to a ratio of 1 ophthalmologist for every 90,000 people in India.
