[294 Pages Report] Technological advancements have deeply penetrated every facet of the healthcare industry, and the ophthalmic lasers market is no exception. Over the years, ophthalmic disorders such as diabetic retinopathy, refractive errors, glaucoma, cataract and age related macular degeneration (AMD) have surged exponentially. This has accelerated demand for advanced surgical procedures.
The introduction of ophthalmic laser surgery has revolutionized ophthalmic care in unprecedented ways. Majority of these technologies are being deployed in cataract surgeries, attributed to the disorder’s widespread prevalence across all continents. Advancements such femtosecond laser surgeries have proven highly instrumental in streamlining ophthalmic procedures, offering lightning speed detection of faulty tissues.
Such reduced detection and treatment timeframes act as major growth catalysts for the global ophthalmic lasers market, which is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1.3 Bn by 2030.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The novel coronavirus pandemic will have a significantly high impact on the ophthalmic lasers market. As lockdowns and curbs continue to remain enforced, the number of footfalls across ophthalmology clinics and hospitals have declined considerably. Patient care has diminished by nearly 60%, with only emergency surgeries being permitted.
With in-patient visits becoming next to impossible, ophthalmologists are resorting to telemedicine with regards to consultation and advice to patients. A slump is anticipated in refractive and premium lens surgeries across developing economies in the long-run, attributed to cash crunches experienced by individual households due to the prolonged lockdowns.
At the same time, several countries are enforcing strict social distancing protocols and hygiene practices, keeping demand for ophthalmic laser surgeries sustained. For instance, ophthalmologists in Germany have made it a protocol to test patients requiring intravitreal injections and other procedures for COVID-19. If positive, they are redirected to emergency departments, reducing chances of infection.
“Vendors in the ophthalmic lasers landscape are striving to introduce novel product lines, equipped with multi-frequency selection modes to reduce exposure to intense laser bursts, preventing healthy tissue damage,” infers the FMI analyst.
Prominent vendors in the ophthalmic lasers market include are ZEISS International, Nidek Inc., Bausch & Lomb Inc., Abbot Laboratories Inc., SCHWIND Eye-Tech Solutions, Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems AG, Novartis AG (Alcon), LENSAR LLC., iVIS Technologies and NKT Photonics A/S. New product launches and collaborations have helped these players acquire firm footing.
In 2018, ZEISS International rolled out its VISUFIT 1000 digital 3D centration data determination and consultation platform, offering a three-dimensional facial reconstruction which enables ophthalmologists perform precise centration processes on patients.
In July 2022, SCHWIND Eye-Tech acquired CE approval for its SCHWIND ATOS femtosecond laser, permitting eye surgeons to incorporate the technology in their SmartSight refractive surgery procedures.
