Has anyone completed a market analysis for contact lens wearers--or the eye care industry as a whole?  If no, suggestions on resources and next steps appreciated.

Sawyer, I'm working on something in this space (ophthalmology, optometrist sector) and gathering some market intel. Message me privately to tell me what you're looking for. Maybe I can help and vice versa.

For a relatively low out-of-pocket cost, you can create and conduct your own survey(s) of contact lens users via Survata (disclosure: I work with them).  I can help you get started (or more extensively if you need help) bruce.carlisle@yahoo,com.  Or you can go straight to Survata.com .  Bruce

Hi Sawyer Which country data are you looking for? If its India, and if this is for a company planning to enter India, do let me know. I don't have ready market information, but I have expertise in mass market products' marketing, sales and distribution in India.

You could check out some startups in the space to:

1) See if they've published relevant thought leadership.
2) Reach out to their teams to gather data if your product isn't a competitor. 

Some examples are EyeNetra, Smart Vision Labs, Frameri, and Warby Parker.

Hi Sawyer, not sure if you've seen this but Grand View Research has done the research and made projections out to 2020.
