With the introduction of laser technology for eye surgery and the technological enhancement for better results, the eye care market has witnessed a remarkable upsurge during the past decade. The global burden of vision impairment and eye disorders is now being addressed by the latest technological interventions such as ophthalmic femtosecond lasers.

According to the ASCRS Clinical Survey in 2016, an estimated three-fourths of eye surgeons are using femtosecond lasers for the creation of LASIK flaps in the U.S. Characteristics of the femtosecond wavelength and capacity to perform multiple geometrical cuts permit the use of ophthalmic femtosecond lasers in various ophthalmic surgeries. Moreover, ophthalmic femtosecond lasers work with comparatively reduced trauma to the tissues, resulting in less inflammation as well as an early recovery.
