The Vision Council Releases Its 2017 Annual Report


ALEXANDRIA, Va.—The Vision Council has released its 2017 Annual Report, outlining some of the organization’s many accomplishments and the progress made across the industry throughout the past year, according to an announcement from The Vision Council.“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,” the organization said.

The VisionWatch market research team maintained its status as one of the most comprehensive industry research resource available, interviewing more than 120,000 consumers and producing over 63,000 data points to allow members to make informed business decisions.

The government and regulatory affairs team, whose advocacy saved lens and lab members over $10 million in estimated yearly compliance costs through the FDA exemption of optical lenses from UDI regulations, met regularly with Representatives across the country as well as on Capitol Hill to help ensure members’ interests were met.
