DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/47g4dz/global_ophthalmic) has announced the addition of the "Global Ophthalmic Lasers Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Ophthalmic Lasers market to grow at a CAGR of 3.53% over the period 2013-2018
Ophthalmic lasers are diagnostic and therapeutic devices used in the field of ophthalmology. They are used to treat various eye diseases such as tumors, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal disorders, and cataract and vision correction problems.
These devices are highly accurate and affective as they allow patients to return home on the day of surgery, avoiding hospital stay or extended recovery time.
One key trend emerging in the market is the increased popularity among surgeons for femtosecond lasers for cataract surgeries. These lasers help to reduce the complex steps in traditional cataract surgery.
According to the report, an increase in the aging population worldwide is one of the major drivers of the market, which has led to an increase in age-related ophthalmic disorders such as AMD, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy, which has raised the demand for ophthalmic lasers for treatment.
Further, the report states that the presence of the potential risk of complications associated with LASIK procedures is proving to be a hindrance to the adoption of these devices. Complications include opaque bubble layer, transient light sensitivity syndrome, rainbow glare, and lamellar keratitis.
