Hydrogel contact lenses are usually soft silicon based contact lens made of flexible silicon or hydrogel material, allowing high oxygen exchange through cornea and air. Hydrogel contact lenses are made with the suitable hydrogel and silicone hydrogel constituents that allow significant amount of oxygen to pass through the lens material, thereby decreasing the risk of hypoxia conditions making cornea less susceptible to inflammation and infection. All the hydrogel contact lenses are for short use that are discarded after using it for 5 or 10 days. Nevertheless, the risk of infection remains high while using the hydrogel contact lenses during the night. People affected with binocular vision irregularities such as amblyopia benefits from the use of hydrogel contact lenses. Recent advancements in extended wear Hydrogel contact lenses is the development of prolonged use gas permeable lenses. Extended wear gas permeable lens offers reduced risk of dirt build up between space within eye and surface of lens. As per the data from to center of disease control and prevention, in year 2016, approximately 42 million Americans ware using contact lenses and over 90% of adult population wore soft gel lenses. Hydrogel contact lenses requires professional care and regular monitoring and increases the risk of complications.
Hydrogel contact lenses Market: Drivers and Restraints
The significant factors driving the growth of the hydrogel contact lenses market include the rising number of eye disorder cases, additionally increasing popularity of hydrogel contact lenses over spectacles and the growing demand for better ocular aesthetics amongst the young population for better eye wear solutions is anticipate to boost the market for hydrogel contact lenses. The increasing population pool of elderly people in anticipated to increase the demand for the hydrogel contact lenses market. Additionally the advancement in the hydrogel contact lenses offering increased permeability to the oxygen is anticipated to offer new growth opportunity for the hydrogel contact lenses market. However, the rising number of imitation lenses in some developing countries in Asia pacific regions and the growing acceptance of iris corrective procedures such as Photorefractive Keratectomy and LASIK are some of the factors that are expected to restrict the growth of the global hydrogel contact lenses market.
