and Vision Monday are pleased to announce the selections in the 10th annual EYEVOTE READERS’ CHOICE AWARDS, a special survey aimed at identifying readers’ favorite products and companies of the year. Optical retailers and ECP readers of the two Jobson Medical Information publications were asked to identify their “favorite” products in 14 distinct categories: optical frames, spectacle lenses, sunglasses, Rx sun lenses, contact lenses, optical equipment, optical supplies, diagnostic equipment, practice management software, EHR software, dispensing/measuring fitting systems, online ordering website, patient engagement systems and social purpose missions.

Selected companies were chosen based on both brand and company choices supplied by readers. This year’s survey spanned a wide range of product brands and product groups. 539 voters took part in the 2018 EyeVote survey from Oct. 10 through Nov. 8, 2018. An incentive for a chance to win a $500 Amex Gift Card and two $100 Amex Gift Cards was offered to encourage respondents to answer the survey.
