COVID-19 Impact:

Industry Growth Hindered Due to Difficulty in Accessing Optometric Services

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the industry with prominent participants registering a huge decline in revenue. This is mainly on account of the difficulty in accessing optometric services owing to the spread of the pandemic. This led to a drop in the product adoption rate, resulting in decreased demand for routine check-ups. These factors hindered the US reading glasses market share to some extent.


18-64 Years Segment to Gain Traction Due to Growing Incidences of Major Eye Disorders

Based on age group, the US reading glasses market is subdivided into less than 18 years, 18-64 years, and 65 years and older. Of these, the 18-64 years segment accounted for a major share in 2021 and is set to record substantial growth over the estimated period. The rise can be attributed to the surging prevalence of critical eye disorders.

+0.25 to +2 Segment to Emerge Prominent Owing to Surging Product Demand

On the basis of corrective strength, the US reading glasses market is fragmented into +0.25 to +2, +2.25 to +3, and greater than +3. The +0.25 to +2 segment captured a key share in 2021 and is expected to record lucrative expansion over the analysis period. The rise is being driven by the escalating U.S. population in the age group of 4-59 years and the mounting demand for glasses with corrective strength.
