The refractive eye surgery market has been growing rapidly, primarily by treating myopia through excimer laser procedures such as laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, photorefractive keratectomy, and traditional incisional surgeries such as radial keratotomy.
Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis or LASIK, the most popular form of laser vision correction, reduces post-operative discomfort and provides a significant improvement in sight the day after surgery.
