Microkeratome is used in Descemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK) to cut a reedy layer from the back of the cornea, which is then relocated into the cornea of the inheritor. Before the commencement of surgery, the vacuum and microkeratome units are assembled, carefully tested, and inspected to confirm appropriate functioning.
The growth of the global microkeratome market is driven by rapid growth of geriatric population and increase in prevalence of eye disorders. Moreover, technological advancements in surgical devices is another major factor that fuel the market growth.
In addition, various developing countries in Asia-Pacific are progressively investing on the improvement of healthcare infrastructure and are promoting awareness about eye disorders, which in turn supplement the growth of the market. However, high cost of these devices and dearth of skilled professionals, especially in the rural areas, act as restraints of the market.
