Global Vision Care Market Analysis: Competitive Landscape and Key Developments

Alcon Inc, Bausch Health Companies Inc, Carl Zeiss AG, Cooper Companies Inc, Essilorluxottica SA, Johnson & Johnson Services Inc., Hoya Corporation, Rodenstock GmbH, Menicon Co. Ltd, and Rayner Intraocular Lenses Limited are a few of the key companies operating in the vision care market. The market leaders focus on new product launches, expansion and diversification, and acquisition strategies, which allow them to access prevailing business opportunities.

In March 2022, Alcon Inc launched the Clareon family of IOLs in the US. Using Alcon’s most advanced IOL material, Clareon can deliver consistent visual outcomes and exceptional clarity that lasts.

In January 2021, Alcon Inc. launched its first and only non-diffractive extended depth of focus IOL—the AcrySof IQ VivityT IOL (Vivity)—in the US. This new lens is now available to all ophthalmologists in the US for operating cataract patients.

In October 2020, Bausch + Lomb introduced the SimplifEYE IOL delivery system, which is particularly available for the enVista MX60PL and the enVista toric MX60PT. It is the first preloaded toric IOL and is available in the US market.

Inquiry Before Purchase:

The US holds a significant share of the vision care market. The growth of the market in the country is primarily driven by the increasing prevalence of eye diseases. Further, the aging population in the US is likely to favor the adoption of vision care products. According to a study published by Population Reference Bureau in 2019, the number of individuals in the US aged 65 and above is estimated to double from 52 million in 2018 to ~95 million by 2060, and the 65 and more age group’s share of the total population will increase from 16% to 23% during this period. The elderly population is highly vulnerable to eye defects. Refractive errors are the most frequent eye problems in the US. Refractive errors include myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (distorted vision at all distances), and presbyopia, which occur among people of age 40–50. These can be corrected by eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgeries. The National Eye Institute states that proper refractive correction could improve vision among 150 million Americans. Cataract, which is a leading cause of blindness worldwide, is characterized by the clouding of the eye lens; it is also the leading cause of vision loss in the US. An intraocular lens (IOLs) is a tiny, artificial lens that is used during cataract surgery. The rising prevalence of cataracts is driving the adoption of IOLs in the country. Refractive errors are common due to increasing stress on the eyes and the low nutritional value of diets. As per the American Academy of Ophthalmology, more than 34 million Americans aged 40 and more (i.e., 23.9% of this population) are myopic. In addition, a refractive error occurs in ~1 in 3 people, and the condition may occur in combination with near or farsightedness. According to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2020, ~12 million people over age 40 in the US are suffering from vision impairment. The same study states that an estimated 6.8% of children below age 18 are diagnosed with some kind of eye condition in the US. Such a massive prevalence of eye conditions represents a lucrative opportunity for the progress of the vision care market in the US.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Global Vision Care Market Growth:

The rising number of COVID-19 patients led to an overall negative impact on the vision care market. Physical distancing measures were implemented widely to reduce disease transmission. Further to reduce the spread, clinic visits and elective surgeries were canceled in 2020. According to a survey by Alcon Canada, ~66% of the Canadian population requiring vision correction are spending more time on computer, tablet, or phone screens than they did before the pandemic, and ~31% feel their eyesight has gotten worse.

Moreover, a study conducted by a research firm Leger on 1,000 Canadians requiring vision correction estimated that one-third (34%) delayed the purchase of new contact lenses while another third (33%) delayed buying new glasses; ~40% were uncomfortable visiting their eye care clinics during the COVID pandemic.

Vision Care Market: Segmental Overview

Based on product type, the vision care market is segmented into eyeglasses, contact lens, intraocular lens, and others. In 2022, the eyeglasses segment accounted for the largest market share. The same segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Eyeglasses, also known as spectacles, consist of glass or plastic lenses mounted on frames. Eyeglasses are not only used for vision correction such as nearsightedness but are also used for cosmetic purposes. Corrective eyeglasses are used to correct refractive errors by properly bending the light entering the eye to reduce the effects of conditions such as farsightedness (hypermetropia), nearsightedness (myopia), or astigmatism. Eyeglasses are also used by laboratory technicians, construction workers, etc., for protection. Elderly people from the age group 65–75 wear corrective eyeglasses. Increasing incidences of refractive errors among the younger population, preference for eyeglasses over contact lens, and growing geriatric population are key factors driving the growth of the market for eyeglasses.

Courageous Whistleblowers Reclaim Derogatory Terms As Data Shows 80% of Financial Professionals Stay Silent on Suspected Internal Fraud, Fearing Retaliation




Enron whistleblower, Sherron Watkins, alongside stars of Apple TV’s The Big Conn, Sarah Carver and Jennifer Griffith, reclaim derogatory labels for whistleblowers          Concerning new data shows more than half of financial professionals in the UK and US have spotted or suspected internal fraud in their workplaces, yet four out of five stay silent fearing retaliation          32% of professionals in finance have seen whistleblowers victimized behind their back or to their faceJACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — New data from fraud detection software company Medius shows more than half of financial professionals in the UK and US (56%) have spotted or suspected internal fraud in their workplaces yet four in five (81%) stayed silent. When asked why, 45% of professionals cited the fear of recrimination.

Whistleblowers Sherron Watkins, Sarah Carver and Jennifer Griffith have joined forces to reclaim the derogatory names they were called after reporting serious internal financial fraud.
To help empower others to come forward, the whistleblowers are reclaiming the terms “snitch”, “rat” and “traitor”.
Sherron Watkins is the former Vice President of Enron Corporation who alerted the CEO to accounting irregularities, warning the organization “‘might implode in a wave of accounting scandals.” Watkins received national acclaim for her courageous actions and TIME magazine named her along with two others as their Persons of the Year in 2002, calling them simply ‘The Whistleblowers.’
Sarah Carver and Jennifer Griffith are the stars of Apple TV’s The Big Conn after they exposed a fraud scheme of more than $550 million while employed at the Social Security Administration. In efforts to silence their disclosures, they experienced multiple acts of severe retaliation and were denied protection. Ultimately, both Carver and Griffith were forced from employment.
Concerns of repercussions are vindicated – the survey reveals the extent to which financial professionals in the UK and US have witnessed negative consequences for whistleblowers firsthand:           
59% have seen whistleblowers subsequently left out of important decisions           33% have seen whistleblowers moved to a different team           32% have heard whistleblowers called derogatory names behind their backs or directly to their faceWhen asked what would encourage them to flag suspicious activity, 93% of workers surveyed would feel more comfortable doing so if they had more evidence, yet nearly half (48%) said the legal system simply does not adequately protect whistleblowers.
Jim Lucier, CEO at Medius, a leading global provider of cloud-based accounts payable automation and spend management solutions, said:
“White collar crime is on the rise and no organization is safe. Employees are the last line of defense against fraud but confidence to report suspicious activity is declining. AI anomaly-detection technology can provide employees with the evidence and assurances they need to be more forthcoming. Building a culture where employees feel comfortable to report their suspicions could save organizations millions in the long-run.”
Medius works with over 4,000 customers across 102 countries and processes $200 billion in annual spend. It uses the power of AI and automation to detect fraud the moment invoices are submitted safeguarding against bad actors and potential threats, internal and external.
Sherron Watkins, whistleblower who was called a “snitch”, said: “When someone is troubled by corporate wrongdoing and they attempt to sound the alarm, the pathway is uncharted, things happen organically. Normal rational people speak about their concerns with their closest friends and work colleagues, who often suggest staying safe saying “keep your head down, if you must report, go soft, nothing black and white.” Yet black and white evidence is what is needed to get the attention of those in power, either internally or with media or outside watchdog groups to prevent or stop fraudulent activity.”  
Jennifer Griffith, whistleblower who was called a “traitor”, said: “Choosing to blow the whistle involves more than just the desire to right a wrong.  It’s about protecting their employers from fraud. However, it’s more often than not seen as causing trouble for the employer, or as a self-serving action to get a financial reward. No one who chooses to blow the whistle expects to have their reputation attacked, their credibility impugned or to lose their job. The cost of ignoring a whistleblowers complaints are far greater than acknowledging that a problem exists and taking steps to fix it.  It’s been 19 years since I blew the whistle and the problems that existed then with the Social Security Administration still exist today. We must do more to protect whistleblowers.”
Sarah Carver, whistleblower who was called a “rat”, said: “The government’s attempt to conceal the fraud resulted in exacerbated damage, whereas a more prudent approach would have entailed immediate acknowledgement and rectification upon initial disclosure. The retaliatory measures aimed at silencing me made me stronger and fight harder to find someone to listen and stop the fraud.”
Georgina Hallford-Hall, CEO of Whistleblowers UK, said: “Too many organisations talk the talk but fail to engage with whistleblowers often at great cost to both. Technology used properly can remove the fear that both organisations and whistleblowers have about dealing with whistleblowing because it removes the person and focuses on the concerns or malfeasance. WhistleblowersUK are calling on the UK government to introduce an Independent Office of the Whistleblower to protect everyone from discrimination setting standards that end stigmatisation and discrimination making it safe to speak up.”
The billboard advertising campaign runs on Wall Street from Saturday, 18th May to Friday, 24th May 2024.
