Key Market Trends

Contact Lens Segment Dominates the UK Ophthalmology Devices Market

  • Contact lens or the corrective contact lenses are used for vision correction and functions the same way as conventional eyeglasses. There are different types of contact lenses available to correct different vision problems, including myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), and astigmatism (both near and far-sightedness).
  • Since the past two decades, the number of contact lens wearers requiring presbyopic correction has grown significantly in recent years. The newer generation of contact lens, of both rigid and soft types, provide many advantages over the older generation of lenses.
  • Advantages of contact lens over regular glasses, consumer's increasingly intensive usage of electronic devices across all age groups, aging population, and use of DD lenses in some geographies are primary drivers for this market.
  • Moreover, the development of progressive contact lenses is expected to boost the market over the next few years, owing to their high growth opportunities. In November 2019, Johnson & Johnson Vision has launched its Acuvue Oasys contact lens with Transitions Light Intelligent Technology is now available across the UK.
  • Though the category of customers changing lenses on a weekly basis has declined, the daily disposable category has exhibited continued growth. These trends are encouraging signs for the opportunities in the soft contact lens segment in the studied market.
