Market Opportunity: Prescribe & Sell More AR in Children’s Eyewear


More children in your practice could benefit from anti-reflective treatment in their spectacle lenses, findings from The Vision Council VisionWatch 2016 Parent Child Vision Care Report suggest. Over 26 percent of parents said their child’s lenses possessed AR coating. This is slightly lower than the 30 percent of AR coated lenses in the total population (which includes children and adult lenses). Parents with one child under the age of 18 living at home were slightly more likely to have purchased their children’s lenses with AR coating and parents with managed vision coverage were far more likely to purchase AR coated lenses for their children than those without vision coverage.
