The growing incidence of diabetes, and high blood pressure along with the rising geriatric population has resulted in burgeoning cases of cataracts. This in turn has propelled the growth of the cataract treatment market. Cataract is among the leading causes of blindness and a surgery is the only available treatment presently. In cataract surgery treatment, natural clouded lens is replaced with clean artificial lens. This treatment procedure involves the usage of a wide range of instruments and devices called ophthalmic viscoelastic devices. In addition, robust cataract awareness campaigns such as cataract camps, and conducive government reimbursement policies, are driving the profound growth of the market. Moreover, faster FDA approvals on drugs for use in cataract surgery is creating positive outcomes. The cumulative forces of these factors are driving the growth of the global cataract treatment market. 


Diverse Application Pool of FLACS to Create Seismic Waves of Growth 


The deployment of new technologies for the treatment of cataracts is driving the growth for the cataract treatment market. The rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries has provided significant momentum to femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). Numerous benefits of FLACS over traditional cataract surgery have boosted its adoption for such cataract procedures. High precision in shape and size of capsulotomy, endothelial cell reduction, higher accuracy in corneal incisions, along with better refractive stability, are some of the benefits of FLACS. These benefits have been instrumental in increasing its adoption across the surgeon community. This preference for FLACS in turn is auguring growth in the global cataract treatment market.
