Sport Eyewear continues to be a viable category for your business. Ninety-three percent of independent optical
locations dispensing eyeglasses also report dispensing some type of sport or protective eyewear (including ski and swim goggles). Coupled with the immersion of the athleisure category into the optical space, providing your active patients with stylish and practical performance options for sport eyewear is essential. Ask your patients about their lifestyle activities and recommend sport eyewear for their active needs.

20/20 presents the annual Sport Eyewear MarketPulse Survey conducted by Jobson Research. The study surveyed 332 respondents at independent optical locations dispensing eyeglasses (309 dispensed sport eyewear) in March 2019.
