NEW YORK—The deadline of May 18 is approaching for submissions to Vision Monday's signature Annual Top 50 U.S. Optical Retailers Report, which will be published in its upcoming June print/digital edition this year. The industry's leading news platform is kicked off its annual survey among regional and national retailers for the exclusive report, which will collect and present sales and operations data for the calendar year ending Dec. 31, 2022. Noted Marge Axelrad, SVP/editorial director of Vision Monday, "Given the still-challenging business climate of the past year, it’s important that we collect information directly from as many optical retailers as we can, so we can best manage the task of developing VM estimates for companies and their businesses.

"One of VM's most-read features, the U.S. Top 50 report and ranking will again examine U.S optical retail and ECP groups' revenues, including those of mass merchants. Consolidation has altered some of those posted which also opens up opportunities for new groups to be listed," she said.

Past Top 50 Retailer companies and other regional retail and professional practice groups around the U.S. are invited to take part in the survey. Information for the survey forms must be submitted no later than Wednesday May 18 at 11:59 p.m. to be considered for the June 2023 Top 50 Special Report. A link to the form is posted here and a downloadable PDF version of the form is also available to be submitted.
