Capitalize on the Growing, Multi-Billion Dollar Optical Industry
The United States market for all vision care products and services totals over $28 billion a year. Every year, retail optical sales continue to grow steadily as ‘baby boomers’ (who account for 55% of the population) are aging and are in need of eyeglasses, frequent eye exams and quality professional eye care. In addition to ‘baby boomers’, Optometrists have found that that the demand for contact lenses among the teenage demographic (ages 12 and above) is growing at an extremely rapid pace. We capitalize on these trends by catering to the specific needs of these target audiences.
