NEW YORK—The deadline for submissions to Vision Monday's signature Annual Top 50 U.S. Optical Retailers Report has been extended to May 24. The report and ranking will be published in VM's upcoming June print/digital edition this year. The annual survey spans regional and national retailers and ECP groups 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 24 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.
