The UK eyewear market recorded a small decline in value sales growth in 2012. It continues to be affected by economic uncertainty which is resulting in some consumers postponing their eyewear purchases to the future, but any decline is minimal as many areas of this market are a necessity for most people. This is borne out by the continued growth in contact lenses in terms of both volume and value sales, whereas spectacle value sales are down.
