Microkeratome is a type of high precision surgical instrument which comprises an oscillating blade intended to create the corneal flap for surgeries associated with refractive errors. These devices are used in LASIK or ALK surgeries. Healthy human cornea varies in between 500 & 600m in LASIK technique, the microkeratome produces a thick flap of around 83200 m.

Rise in number of visual impairment cases in emerging economies is key driving factor which is expected to boost the global microkeratome market growth. For instance, according to WHO (World Health Organization) more than 80% of total ophthalmic diseases in African country of Rwanda was refractive errors represented around 5.3% of the total population in 2018.
