Contact Lenses Market Overview

The next generation contact lenses market is estimated to be worth $38 million in 2019 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 52% during the forecast period. For more than five decades, contact lenses have primarily been used to correct vision-related disorders. The existence of several unmet needs in the field of ophthalmology, recent technological advances and the availability of new biomaterials, have substantially expanded the range of potential application areas for contact lenses. It is estimated that close to 2.4 million eye injuries occur every year in the US. In order to cater to this demand, a myriad of therapeutic contact lenses have been developed specifically for treating / protecting the eye. The efficient delivery of drugs / other therapeutic substances to the eye is also deemed to be an area for improvement. It is presently characterized by low bioavailability and limited exposure time to pharmacological interventions; for instance, in the case of eye drops, 95% of the active therapeutic ingredient is assumed to be lost / wasted post dose administration. A variety of drug-eluting contact lenses have been / are being developed to address the aforementioned challenges. The potential of contact lenses is being explored for diagnosis and disease monitoring purposes as well. Diabetes and glaucoma are key clinical conditions for which contact lenses are being developed to assess and track various disease related parameters. In fact, 10 contact lenses have already been approved for purposes other than vision correction; recent examples include CUSTOMFLEX® ARTIFICIALIRIS (aniridia, 2018) and EYEMATE® (glaucoma, 2017).

On the other hand, according to the National Eye Institute, nearly 1.3 million people are blind, while 2.9 million individuals have poor vision, in the US. It is estimated that the number of cases for blindness and poor vision are likely to reach 2.2 million and 5 million, respectively, by 2030, in the same region. Visual prosthetics, such as bionic eyes, represent the next generation of solutions for vision restoration. Their unique mechanism of action leverages electrical pulses to stimulate optic nerves and bypass damaged segments of region in the eye. Pharmaceutical companies and academic institutions have already invested a significant amount of capital in the development and commercialization of the abovementioned products. The ongoing efforts to innovate in next generation contact lenses market are evident from the fact that more than 7,500 patents have been granted / filed since 2013. In the coming years, the market is anticipated to grow at a significant pace as more novel solutions clear clinical evaluation and get commercialized.
