A contact lens is a lightweight corrective, cosmetic, or therapeutic device that is placed directly onto the cornea of the eye to improve vision. Using contact lens not only avoids the need to use hard to manage, bulky spectacles, but also provides the added benefit of enhancing ones aesthetic appeal. In addition, contact lenses are also used to treat common eye disorders such as myopia, hypermetropia, presbyopia, astigmatism, and glaucoma.
The rise in aging population, increasing desire of people to enhance their aesthetic appearance, prevalence of ophthalmic disorders, and introduction of multifocal and other new lenses majorly drive the market growth. However, the market faces a hindrance due to the increasing acceptance of other ophthalmology devices and corrective procedures such as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and laser & rising side effects of contact lenses such as eye infections and corneal ulcers. Factors such as increase in aging population, improving economy, and increasing disposable incomes globally, are key reasons for the market to grow at a fast pace and are expected to provide numerous opportunities for market growth.
