In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the increasing advantages of contact lens over glass lens as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global contact lens market:
Increasing advantages of contact lens over glass lens
The growing cases of ocular ailments, including refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia lead to visual impairment or blindness. Factors such as increased smoking, UV light exposure, or genetic conditions cause such ailments. Over the years, owing to the high exposure to digital appliances such as gaming consoles, computers, and other electronic products, the incidences of eye disorders among the youth have increased. Contact lenses have the ability to provide vision correction with better aesthetic and cosmetic appeal and user-friendly features and are a replacement for corrective glasses.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for health and wellness, “Contact lenses provide better all-around vision, allowing clear peripheral vision when compared to glass lens, wherein only the objects in front of the person is clearly visible. Contact lenses have high demand as they eliminate glare and are more comfortable and fashionable to wear and carry around than glasses. Glass lens can lead to eye fatigue, pain, or headaches and can fog up in cold weather, unlike contact lens. Several players in the market provide contact lenses to correct various refractive errors.”
