"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global disposable contact lenses market size expected to drive positive and strong growth in the forecast period 2019-2026. A contact lens is a thin and clear object placed on the film of an eyeball to cover the surface of an eye. While they seem to be a modern addition to the aesthetics of an eye, they are more often used by people for vision correction. They correct the refractive index of an eye and maintain the ocular clearance. Disposable contact lenses are designed in such a way that they can be worn for one day to a few weeks and can be removed & discarded at the end of their usage period.
They have typically high water content, and cannot be reused. Disposable contact lenses are gaining popularity amongst all the age groups for their convenient usage. Colored contact lenses entirely change the hue of an eye, and are used by millions of people for purely cosmetic purposes.
