Growth for the contact lens sector is fastest in the Asia-Pacific than any other global region, a news source has stated.
Indian publication the Business Standard made the claim, pointing out that there are more than 15 million people who have problems with their sight in the area.
However, contact lenses are being used by just five per cent of people.
Bausch & Lomb is the leading contact lens firm within the sector.
A lack of information and understanding about contact lenses is one reason given as to why use of them is so low, with people not fully aware of the advantages.
