Contact lenses manufacturers are optimizing supply chains and flexibility in operations to sustain production and ensure stock availability during the covid-19 pandemic.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2020 / The contact lenses market is projected to surpass a valuation of US$ 8 Bn by 2020. The covid-19 outbreak has resulted in governments issuing social distancing guidelines in addition to encouraging the postponement of elective medical services, such as contact lens prescriptions. Also, heath concerns for workers in contract lens production and distribution facilities will moderately impact the global contact lenses market in the short term.

"The rising incidences of chronic eye ailments and a growing number of children afflicted by myopia are key factors aiding the adoption of contact lenses. Demographic factors such as an expanding population of geriatrics and diabetics will sustain market operations through and after the coronavirus crisis," states the FMI analyst.
