Number of LASIK surgeries in Europe from 2004 to 2020 (in thousands)

Number of LASIK surgeries in Europe 2004-2020 This statistic illustrates the development of the number of LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) surgeries in Europe from 2004 to 2020. The number of laser eye surgeries conducted in Europe has fluctuated over the period observed, from over 1.1 million procedures in 2004 to 593 thousand procedures in 2015. The number of laser eye correction surgeries is expected to increase to 757 thousand by 2020. The number of laser eye surgeries carried out in Germany has increased over the time period to 135 thousand procedures in 2015. Laser eye surgery is seen, by many, as a permanent alternative to wearing contact lenses or eye spectacles. The procedures are considered safe, with the demand for such procedures growing in popularity. The share of individuals wearing contact lenses in Europe is highest in Serbia with approximately 30 percent of individuals wearing them. Slovakia, Italy and Latvia follow with a respective 15 percent of the population wearing contact lenses. Cataract eye surgery is also a popular treatment method for individuals seeking successful removal of cataracts from their eyes. The highest number of day cases of cataract surgery occurred in Belgium with 1003.2 day cases per 100,000 population, followed by Denmark with 963.9 day cases per 100,000 population.
