Another budding up sector in this market is the contact lenses segment. Due to increased awareness and convenience of use, contact lenses are another major eyewear product gaining high-user acceptance worldwide. The preferred modality they are available in is usually daily disposable and weekly disposable forms which make it desirable to consider and use. However, owing to the lower retail prices of the contact lenses as compared to other eyewear products, this sector is not expected to translate into high revenues in the coming years.

According to the study proposed in this report by Transparency Market Research,rise in the number of visual deficiencies amongst the constantly growing population has led the population to adapt to effective eyewear solutions for a better vision. It has also created great awareness regarding the importance of regular eye examinations and methods of elimination using corrective eyewear.All these factors are expected to inhibit the growth of the global eyewear market over the next six years. The study claims that a large percentage of the population is afflicted with conditions such as presbyopia, myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

Additionally, the expansion of the eyewear market is also mainly attributed due to children using spectacles or adapting to vision correction techniques at an early age.
