Summary and extracts

1 Synthèse du marché

1.1 Introduction

The ophthalmic lens market represents a key sector of the optical industry, providing corrective and preventive solutions for a variety of vision problems. There are several types:[Grandvision]

  • Progressive lenses: Introduced in 1959, these lenses combine different types of vision correction, allowing clear vision for both distance and near. They are ideal for those who suffer from presbyopia and do not wish to constantly change glasses.
  • Photochromic lenses: These corrective lenses change color upon contact with sunlight, thanks to a chemical process. They became popular in the 1990s and are suitable for those who frequently go in and out of enclosed spaces and do not want to change sunglasses to prescription lenses.
  • Polarized lenses: These lenses contain small crystals that filter out the sun's rays, which are especially useful in situations of particular glare.
  • Bifocal lenses: These lenses offer "two focuses," allowing clear vision for both distance and near. Today they have mostly been replaced by progressive lenses.
  • Anti-reflective lenses: These lenses help repel light vibrations from lamps, headlights, etc.
  • Anti-scratch lenses: These lenses are useful for people who use glasses daily and are at risk of scratching them.
  • UV and blue-violet light filter lenses: These lenses repel light pulses, relaxing vision and helping those who spend many hours exposed to UV and blue-violet light.

The lenses can be made of various materials, such as silicate or organic material, and can have a number of additional features suited to specific ocular conditions.

With key players such as Luxottica and Safilo helping to shape the industry, the ophthalmic lens market in Italy has a long history of innovation and design.

The global ophthalmic lens market size was valued at $17.3 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $26.4 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual rate (CAGR) of 7.33 percent from 2022 to 2030.[Verifiedmarketresearch]
