Increasing adoption of technologically advanced ocular devices and procedures such as femtosecond laser cataract surgery technology and intraocular lenses (IOLs), which include Toric IOLs has reduced dependency on glasses or contact lenses post-surgery.

In 2016, Allergan received FDA approval for the XEN Gel Stent, a new surgical treatment intended to reduce intraocular pressure of patients suffering from refractory glaucoma. Xen Gel stent is an effective alternative to conventional surgeries such as Trabeculectomy. Therefore, such advanced devices are less painful and time-efficient, which in turn is improving surgery outcomes of ocular surgical procedures.
