Photochromic lenses represent a type of optical and transition lens that are translucent inside and get darken when exposed to radiant energies and ultraviolet (UV) rays. They encompass dispersed silver halide microcrystals in a glass substrate that creates a colored center, which is activated under the presence of visible short-wave radiation. They are manufactured with various materials, including plastic, glass, and polycarbonate. These raw materials are placed below the lens through imbibing and trans-bonding, which provide uniform color regardless the differences in the thicknesses due to the lens prescriptions. Photochromic lenses help in reducing eye strain and damage, decrease the heightened risk of cataracts and offer optimal convenience at cost-effective rates. Consequently, photochromic lenses are extensively deployed in multiple pairs of sunglasses and regular glasses to protect from UV and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiations. At present, they are commercially available in varying hues, including blue, gray, and brown. 

Photochromic Lenses Market Trends:

The increasing prevalence of various eye disorders, such as corneal damage, macular degeneration, and cataracts, especially amongst the geriatric population, due to exposure to UV and UVB radiations, represents a prime factor driving the market growth. Additionally, the rising demand for corrective lenses to improve several vision-related ailments, including diabetic retinopathy and degenerative macula, has facilitated the large-scale incorporation of photochromic lenses in sunglasses, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. In line with this, the extensive product usage in ophthalmology diagnostics for the indication and treatment of visual loss, watery loss, and refractive errors is supporting the market growth. Additionally, the advent of bifocal and progressive lenses with the power to protect eyes from harmful radiations and their growing acceptance by consumers owing to their multiple benefits, including easy utilization, cost-effectiveness, and simple adjustments, are favoring the market growth. Moreover, significant technological advancements, such as the widespread employment of high-performance solutions to compose photochromic lenses with blue light filtering features for glasses, are propelling the market growth. This is further influenced by the continuous development of variable tint photochromic lenses that adapt to match changeable lighting conditions. Apart from this, the product availability across various distribution channels, such as online and retails and the extensive investments in research and development (R&D) activities are positively impacting the market growth.
