PUNE, India, July 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The global vision care market 2016-2020 research report says a trend which is helping boost market growth is the introduction of innovative contact lenses. With the gradual rise in the number of eye infections due to the use of contact lenses, several researchers have proposed the introduction of an antimicrobial coating on the surface of contact lenses to minimize the chances of an infection. These antimicrobial lenses are lined with a peptide called melamine. Though the risk of infection from an average pair of contact lenses is extremely small, the use of antimicrobial coatings reduces this by a factor of four. On average, 20 out of every 10,000 consumers using regular contact lenses are exposed to infection, whereas only 4 out of 10,000 antimicrobial contact lens users are prone to eye infection of any sort.
