Contact Lenses in Switzerland - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Oct 04 2015

The penetration of contact lenses in Switzerland remained low in 2015, with value sales of contact lenses accounting for only a 15% share of overall value sales in eyewear. Based on a study conducted by the Swiss eyewear trade association, Schweizer Optiverband (SOV), contact lens wearers in Switzerland account for a mere 2%, but the number of people who use both contact lenses and spectacles was 16% in 2014. There is a risk of eye infection through contact lenses, and wearers need to pay regular visits to an optician or to an eye doctor for check-ups. Another hindrance to growth is the dryness that results in the eyes at the end of the day from wearing contact lenses. This problem forces about a quarter of wearers to give up contact lenses. Although new innovations have come to the market, the eye dryness factor has remained a problem. These inconveniences discourage many people from shifting from spectacles to contact lenses.
