Despite the challenges posed by the combination of presbyopia and astigmatism, trends show growing consumer interest in today’s expanding arsenal of multifocal contact lens options. The 2020 Target Report on Contact Lens Market Opportunities Among Presbyopes With Astigmatism explores the eye health and vision correction needs and solutions of presbyopes with astigmatism. Compiled from the annual Study of the U.S. Consumer Contact Lens Market (combined dataset), this report compares presbyope astigmat eye health needs and preferences to those of vision corrected and contact lens wearers to identify unmet needs and potential opportunities for contact lenses.
