Region :Global | Report ID: FBI101151 | Status : Ongoing



In October 2018, PhysIOL, Belgian medical devices company launched R-Evo smart, a full set of ophthalmic surgery equipment. The company is offering R-evo smart in 3 different models, Cataract Surgery E, Cataract Surgery S, and Cataract & Vitreo-retinal surgeries. Refractive surgeries highly reduce the dependencies on eyeglasses or contact lenses, also they are carried out to correct refractive eye errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

Refractive errors are caused due to the improper shape of cornea or eyeballs. Refractive surgery procedure includes reshaping of eyeballs or cornea with the help of laser. According to the World Health Organization, factors responsible for uncorrected refractive errors are lack of screening which leads to undetected refractive error and availability & affordability of refractive corrections.
