Celebrating the Achievements of 2017: Annual Report Now Available


The Vision Council has released its 2017 Annual Report, celebrating a few of the organization’s many accomplishments and the progress made across the industry throughout the past year.

From the tremendous results of our consumer campaigns, including nearly 1.5 million eye exams driven by Think About Your Eyes, to our many member programs and the award winning Vision Expos—The Vision Council reached unprecedented numbers of consumers and industry leaders in 2017.

Our VisionWatch market research team worked hard to maintain its status as the most comprehensive industry research resource available, interviewing more than 120,000 consumers and producing over 63,000 data points to allow our members to make informed business decisions. Combined with the dedication of our government and regulatory affairs team whose advocacy saved lens and lab members over $10,000,000 in estimated yearly compliance costs through the FDA exemption of optical lenses from UDI regulations, and meeting with Representatives across the country as well as on Capitol Hill to ensure our members’ interests are met, The Vision Council’s multi-faceted efforts have created a widespread impact on consumers and the greater vision industry.
