KEY HIGHLIGHTS:

  • China has the largest population of those who suffer from vision defects in the world.

  • An estimated 610 million to 650 million people in China has either presbyopia or myopia.

  • China’s optical industry has encountered several problems, and a long-term plan should be established that specifies developmental goals, production and service standards, and financial and professional structures.

  • As China begins to transform its optical industry, three opportunities should be leveraged: increased demand for vision care and mergers, as well as stronger support in terms of government policy.
