Global Contact and Intraocular Lenses Market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.7% and 6.29% to reach USD 9,241.27 Million by 2027.


An intraocular lens is a medical device implanted inside the eye to replace the natural lens during cataract surgery. The contact lens is a thin plastic lens placed directly on the surface of the eye to correct visual defects. The increasing prevalence of various ocular disorders, technological advancements & innovations, and rapidly changing lifestyles are expected to drive the growth of the global contact & intraocular lenses market. However, factors such as the complications related to contact & intraocular lenses and alternatives of contact lenses are expected to restrict the market growth during the forecast period. Strong product demand to change aesthetic appearance (cosmetic lenses) is expected to allow the global contact & intraocular lenses market to grow.


Market Dynamics


Increasing Prevalence of Various Ocular Disorders


The prevalence of various ocular disorders, such as myopia, hypermetropia, and others, is growing at an alarming rate worldwide. These ocular disorders are associated with a significant rise in the risks for vision impairment due to conditions such as high myopia and other diseases. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2050, the prevalence of myopia will be much higher in high-income regions of the Asia-Pacific, i.e., in the East and Southeast Asia, and it is also predicted to increase to 24% in high-income Asia-Pacific countries.


The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) estimated that an uncorrected distance refractive error is the leading cause of moderate and severe vision impairment. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) reported the annual direct cost of correcting distance vision impairment due to refractive errors between USD 3.9 and USD 7.2 billion in the US.


Contact lenses and intraocular lenses are commonly used to correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. There are other eye conditions and keratoconus and aniseikonia, that are better corrected with contact lenses. Intraocular lenses are commonly used during cataract surgery to replace the natural lens of the eye. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of eye disorders is expected to drive the market growth.
