Look around you, reader. Can you find someone who is wearing glasses? Yes, you must because there is a 90% chance for you to see someone wearing some sort of eyewear when you are outside.
But have you ever wondered why there has been a huge boom in people wearing glasses? Half the world’s population is set to wear glasses by 2050. Nearly 2 billion people wear glasses or contact lens in the present time. The need for glasses was not required to this extent 30 years ago. What changed this? The answer is technology.
Technology has been the deciding factor for several businesses. It has massively revolutionized the automobile industry. The medical field is heavily advanced because of technology. But the one industry that grew due to the shortcomings of technology was the eyewear industry. It is proven that more than 6 in 10 people need to wear glasses. This is due to the rise in mobile phone usage and the internet boom in the past 20 years.
