Eyewear market value in the United Kingdom 2015-2020 Since the beginning of the reporting period, the value of the eyewear market in the United Kingdom has been increased annually. Between 2015 and 2019, the market value increased by approximately 12 percent to reach 5.5 billion euros.

Eyewear sales

  Revenues in the eyewear market have increased over the past decade, reaching more than four billion GBP as of 2017. Most of the total revenue was made up from spectacle lenses, followed by eyewear frames.

Eyesight tests

  Many British residents are eligible for free eye tests through the NHS. This includes people such as those under the age of 16, in full-time education, receiving income support or are registered as partially blind. Most NHS free eye tests were for people aged 60 years and over.
The number of NHS conducted eye tests in England has increased steadily since the turn of the century. In 2013/14, 12.8 million eye tests were conducted. This number remained relatively stable in the following years, and in 2017/18 the number of tests amounted to 13 million.
