Focus On Kids Eyewear

Focus On Kids Eyewear

“Reprinted with permission, Jobson Medical Information LLC, all rights reserved” Objectives 1. Understand a current snapshot of the kid’s eyewear market. 2. Learn what trends affect children’s behaviors that affect their need for eyewear. 3. Understand key attributes of children’s eyewear. 4. Learn how to communicate the right children’s eyewear solutions.   FOCUS ON KIDS EYEWEAR Mark Mattison-Shupnick, ABOM If I ask an audience of opticians to tell me the biggest issues when selling eyewear to kids I often get two answers.

In addition, there are always a number of stories about the child that receives their first glasses and it’s obvious that they love the new world that they see. For opticians, that’s often the real reason for what we do. So, if it’s a wonderful result how can you reduce the challenges of getting there? THE CHILDREN’S MARKET From the 2012 US Census, there are about 60 million children in the US today,...
