Region : Global | Report ID: FBI100366 | Status : Ongoing



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.

Contact lenses may offer better eyesight as they do not get splattered by rain or mud & do not fog up like sunglasses, which represent the positive advances in terms of the comfort level of patients. Lack of time for the build-up of protein deposits and better hygiene associated with the use of disposable contact lenses are the key factors driving the expansion of disposable contact lenses across the globe. 

However, the reluctance of patient population towards the use of lenses owing to lack of knowledge, and higher preference towards the use of prescription glasses especially in emerging countries are factors restraining the growth of the global disposable contact lenses market in 2018.
