According to Centre for Disease Control and Prevention in 2015, approximately 20.5 million people in the U.S. suffered from cataract, mainly those aged 40 years and older. One of the foremost drivers for ophthalmic femtosecond lasers market is an increasing incidence rate of cataract and rising geriatric population. Among emerging economies, cataract is the major cause of severe visual impairment. World Health Organization carried out a population-based prevalence survey for blindness, across various regions in Africa that are not endemic for trachoma or onchocerciasis, and discovered a blindness rate of around 1%, with cataract accounting for 40%-50% of visual loss cases.

About 14 million people aged 12 years and above self-reported visual weakening defined as distance visual acuity of 20/50 or worse in 2009 in the U.S. Of these, 11 million people could have enhanced their vision to 20/40 or better with refractive correction.
Also, Glaucoma major affects over 2.7 million people over 40 years of age in the U.S.,.
