Contact Lenses Market Trends and Drivers:

The global contact lenses market is primarily driven by the growing prevalence of common eye disorders and diseases. Moreover, the rising cases of vision deterioration due to aging and the expanding geriatric population across the globe has augmented the demand for contact lenses as a means of vision correction. Along with this, contact lenses offer various advantages over traditional eyeglasses, including enhanced peripheral vision, an unobstructed field of view, and reduced vulnerability to splattering. This, coupled with the increasing participation of individuals in sports and physical activities, has accelerated the product adoption rate. This can be attributed to the ability of contact lenses to minimize the risk of eye injuries, improve compatibility with safety equipment, and enhance performance for individuals and athletes. Additionally, the development of specialized lenses to slow down the progression of nearsightedness in children and to address conditions like keratoconus and other corneal irregularities is positively influencing market growth. Besides this, key players are producing contact lenses with ultraviolet (UV) inhibiting properties, protecting against sun rays that can contribute to cataracts and other eye problems, which in turn has catalyzed the market growth. In addition, the introduction of innovative colored lenses designed for cosmetic purposes is another major growth-inducing factor.
