Early detection and treatment play a major role to save the eyesight. This significant prevalence of aging population is propelling the demand for laser procedures and ophthalmic lasers as it offers significant safety and effectiveness, as compared to traditional approaches. For example, the use of femtosecond laser in cataract surgery enables fragment the cataract, open the lens capsule, and make corneal incisions. This requires low phacoemulsification energy and time and thus decreases thermal injury to ocular tissues by corneal edema and ultrasound.  However, there are certain factors restraining the growth of the market, such as some risks associated with LASIK surgery and the shortage of skilled professionals.
