Furthermore, rising prevalence of myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and other conditions is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

The key players operating in the market are focused on adopting acquisition and collaboration strategies, in order to expand their product offerings in potential markets. For instance, in February 2017, Johnson & Johnson acquired Abbott Medical Optics (AMO), a subsidiary of Abbott, which offers ophthalmic products in consumer eye health, cataract surgery, and laser refractive surgery.
However, high cost of treatment and approval of advanced alternate procedures to LASIK surgery are expected to restrain the custom LASIK surgery market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in September 2016, Carl Zeiss Meditec received the U.S. FDA approval for its VisuMax Femtosecond Laser for small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) procedures, which are indicated for correction of nearsightedness in patients above the age of 22 years. The SMILE procedure is less invasive alterative to the LASIK surgery.
