Global Contact Lens Market: Restraints

Long term use of contact lenses may cause side effects, which is expected to hinder growth of the global contact lens market. Microbial infections caused due to deposition of protein or lipid materials on the lens surface are some of the most common side effects faced by a contact lens wearer. These side effects may further result in serious vision complications causing great discomfort and pain. In addition, factors such as poor sanitation or irregular cleaning habits and prolonged usage further increases the risk of infection.

Moreover, low adoption of contact lenses in emerging economies is also expected to limit the market growth.
