Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2017 -- Any product worn on or over the eye can be termed as eyewear. It encompasses three major product types: spectacles, contact lenses, and plano sunglasses. The rapidly increasing wearer base, with a growing percentage of presbyopes is the strongest driving force for the growth of the eyewear market. In addition, the high renewal rate of lenses due to frequent replacement cycles and changes in lens prescriptions is expected to fuel the market over the forecast period.

The increasing number of refractive surgeries such as LASIK (Laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis) in order to reduce or eliminate the individual's dependency on prescription corrective eyewear is a major factor inhibiting the eyewear market. These procedures are becoming progressively more affordable for a large percentage of the population. Additionally, there is a higher degree of awareness regarding these surgeries, which is expected to act as a restraint on market growth. However, refractive surgeries are still unaffordable for many consumers, particularly in developing nations.
