According to Vision Research Reports, the global prescription lens market size was valued at USD 34.1 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% from 2020 to 2027.

Vision impairment cases due to refractive errors are on the rise. Most of these cases are unnoticed at earlier stages and add to the rising number of Uncorrected Refractive Errors (URE). Patients with refractive errors are unaware of the condition and are not receiving any treatment. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2012, URE held 42.0% in global causes of visual impairment. Hence, to control the increase in URE various organizations are being developed focusing on the detection and treatment of refractive errors.

The growing prevalence of refractive error cases, mainly myopia and astigmatism are expected to drive the demand for prescription lens. Prescription lens help in resolving the inability of the eyes to project the light on retina for enhanced vision. These lenses are available in different shapes and coatings and are preferred as per the refractive order. The convex prescription lens is used for correcting hyperopia, concave prescription lens are used for correcting myopia, and cylindrical prescription lenses is used for astigmatism.

Along with the incorporation of advance technologies and development of enhanced prescription lenses, presence of online platforms for vision testing is also expected to boost market growth. Visibly, is creating digital eye care technologies for providing eye care to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Online vision testing is one of the effective steps taken by the company to make vision care accessible and convenient. These online tests are expected to help in rapid diagnosis of refractive errors and hence will propel the adoption of prescription lens for its treatment.

Type Insights

Single vision prescription lens led the market and accounted for 27.4% share of the global revenue in 2019. Market players focus on developing single vision prescription lens for correcting refractive errors. People aged above 40 years mainly prefer single vision prescription lenses over bifocal, trifocal, and progressive lenses.

Coating Insights

Anti-reflective (AR) coating held for the largest revenue share of 30.2% in 2019 owing to the growing demand for an anti-reflective prescription lens. Anti-reflective coating lens is mainly preferred due to various advantages associated with it such as protection from harmful rays from electronic display screens. AR coating helps in eliminating the reflections thus reduces contrast and enhances clarity. Thus, AR coating lens is largely preferred during night time. In addition, these lenses are nearly invisible, which helps in avoiding any distractions through lens. ZEISS has come up with DuraVision Premium lens coatings, which incorporates ion technology and many advance features which makes the lens surface tougher and resistant to damage and light reflections.

Application Insights

Myopia held for the largest revenue share of 30.8% in 2019 and is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. The global prevalence of myopia is high and it is expected to grow during the forecast period. As per a WHO study, the prevalence of myopia in 2020 was 33.0% globally which is expected to grow to 52.0% by 2050. The highest prevalence of the disease is observed in East Asia under which China, the Republic of Korea, Japan, and Singapore held around 50% of the regional share. Institutes are being developed to control the rise of myopia by increasing awareness regarding their preventive measures. In May 2017, Myopia Institute introduced vision therapy for controlling the progression of myopia.

Presbyopia is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Presbyopia develops with an increase in age and blurs the vision. Growing aging population is one of the major drivers for the growth of this segment.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Countries such as China, Japan, Singapore, and the Republic of Korea accounts for 50.0% share in myopia prevalence worldwide. Growing prevalence of the refractive errors in the region is increasing the number of patient pool and hence is creating the demand for prescription lens for its treatment.
