Versant Health’s Vision Wellness Study Examines How Beliefs About the Value of Eye Exams Changed in the Pandemic

By Staff
Friday, October 1, 2021 1:30 PM NEW YORK—Americans are seeing the value of eye exams, according to the second annual Vision Wellness Study from Versant Health. More adults say they have received an eye exam within the past two years, compared with those who said the same in 2019 (81 percent vs. 77 percent, respectively).
 
In addition, more than half (53 percent) say their household members get an eye exam about once a year, and more than two thirds (69 percent) say having access to technology for virtual eye care visits would make have a high or moderate impact on the likelihood that their household members see an eye doctor more often.
 
The Vision Wellness Study explores how people’s views of eye exams have changed in the pandemic environment, including beliefs about the value of eye care services, the impact of technology innovations on accessing eye care, and concerns about care costs.
