Uncorrected refractive error cases are majorly contributing to the rapidly growing cases of visual impairment. Therefore, various organizations are focusing on increasing awareness regarding the conditions related to refractive errors and their corrective options. These organizations are also incorporating services to treat refractive errors. Initiatives taken to enhance vision care, identify cases at an early stage, and provide efficient lenses for treating different vision problems are expected to boost the market growth.

Myopia and astigmatism are the two refractive errors with the highest prevalence. Therefore, to provide better treatment for these refractive errors, market players are coming up with different types of prescription lenses with advanced coating options. Furthermore, to increase the reach of these advanced prescription lenses, companies are being developed to enhance the accessibility of vision tests through online platforms. These online vision tests will enhance the early diagnosis of refractive errors and hence are expected to impact the adoption of prescription lenses.

Prescription lenses are available with various coating options to provide patients with enhanced vision in a different environment. Anti-reflective coating prescription lenses are widely preferred due to their advantage of eliminating reflection and reducing contrast. UV coating prescription lenses are witnessing growth mainly due to their growing demand to avoid penetration of harmful UV radiations. These UV radiations later can result in various eye-related disorders, thus increasing the demand for UV-coated prescription lenses.

Market players are focusing on forming alliances to expand the reach of their products. For instance, in April 2022, Carl Zeiss launched the ZEISS Supreme Prime 15, which is a wide-angle lens added to the successful family of supreme prime lenses. Similarly, non-profit organizations are initiating programs focusing on resolving visual impairment due to refractive errors.
