A contact lens is a thin lens placed directly on the surface of the eye. The increasing prevalence of visual inaccuracies and eye disorders is one of the key drivers in the contact lenses market. The prevalence of various ocular disorders, such as myopia, hypermetropia, and others is also growing at an alarming rate, worldwide. These ocular disorders are associated with a significant rise in the risks for vision impairment due to conditions such as high myopia and other diseases. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the prevalence of myopia will be much higher in high-income regions of Asia-Pacific, i.e., in the East and South-East Asia and is also predicted to increase to 24% by 2050. According to the Journal of Ophthalmology, 2018 the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) reported the annual direct cost of correcting distance vision impairment due to refractive errors to be between USD 3.9 billion and USD 7.2 billion in the US
Contact lenses are now commonly used to correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. There are other eye conditions as well, such as keratoconus and aniseikonia that are better corrected with contact lenses.
The growing adoption of contact lenses for the correction of multiple vision detects including refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia, is propelling the growth of the market. Additionally, technological advancements in contact lenses and increasing preference for contact lenses in young adults are expected to contribute to the growth of the market during the forecast period. However, alternative therapies for the correction of refractive errors such as LASIK and PRK and safety concerns related to the use of contact lenses may hamper the growth of the market.
