Abstract Table of Contents Request Details Related
The value growth rate for contact lenses in Turkey was faster than in the previous year due to the increasing concerns about health. Ciba Vision (Novartis), the Ministry of Health and the Turkish Ophthalmology Society have undertaken a project to raise the general awareness of contact lenses throughout Turkey and therefore also to increase sales of contact lenses in the country. As direct substitutes for each other, spectacles and contact lenses compete for consumer spending in vision correction. However, Turkish social security does not reimburse purchases of contact lenses, so consumers tend to purchase spectacles rather than contact lenses.

Competitive Landscape

Bausch & Lomb continued to lead value sales of contact lenses in 2012 with a 54% share, followed by Novartis with a 20% value share. Both companies’ shares were stable in 2012.

Industry Prospects

Over the forecast period, the number of contact lens wearers is expected to increase steadily if potential growth is taken into consideration in lens usage rate. In Europe, contact lenses account for 6% of overall eyewear retail sales, while, in Turkey, the category accounted for just 3% of total eyewear value sales in 2012.
