Editor’s Note: Survey Says: Free T-Shirt!

A new perk for active members of our Brain Squad

As invision grows, more and more people around the industry are asking me how we manage to get inside eyecare professionals’ heads each month.

It’s simple: We’re building the INVISION Brain Squad, a group of dedicated American eyecare and eyewear pros who complete short online surveys for us each month. Surveys take only about five minutes, and they provide a ridiculously large amount of useful data for our magazine. Even more important than the data are the insights we receive from ECPs across the country: your joys, your concerns, your stories, what makes you tick.

For all of you who have been with us from the beginning — and especially those who fill out the survey nearly every month — I can only say, “Thank you! You’re the best!” And for those of you who are not yet members, I really encourage you to join.


OK, so you’re probably asking “What’s in it for me?” Here’s your answer:

Answer your first Brain Squad survey and you’ll get your own Brain Squad “Eye Geek” t-shirt.

You get a better INVISION. Each new Brain Squad member we add makes INVISION that much more valuable to you. How much more powerful and useful would these surveys be with monthly response numbers of 500, or 1,000, or more?

More useful information. Once you complete each month’s survey, you can access your fellow respondents’ answers (with individual identities kept anonymous). It’s a great chance to learn, and get more ideas for your business than we could ever publish in the pages of INVISION.

The opportunity to get quoted, even profiled, in our glossy pages. We love to share the success stories of our Brain Squad members. (Your parents — or kids — are going to be so proud!)

Last but not least, you’ll get a super cool T-shirt. Each new Brain Squad member who answers their first survey gets a special “Eye Geek” shirt to celebrate your official Brain Squad membership. Wear it proudly!


If you are an owner or top manager of a U.S. eyecare business engaged in optical retail, join the Brain Squad today at

Wishing you the very best in business,

Single Vision Just Got an Upgrade

Standard single vision lenses are the biggest part of every eyecare professional’s business. And now, the innovators at ZEISS Vision Care have raised the standard in the category with the introduction of ZEISS ClearView lenses. Offering many of the advantages of freeform-optimized lenses with the cost benefit of a standard single vision lens, ZEISS ClearView’s advanced freeform lens design uses point-by-point optimization of the lens surface to deliver on average a three times larger zone of excellent clear vision. ZEISS ClearView lenses are up to 16% thinner and 49% flatter than previous ZEISS single vision lenses and also offer sunglass-level UV protection. Available as surfaced and stock lenses, ZEISS ClearView lenses are now available in North America. For more information, visit
