Everything Is Bigger in the South, Including Eyecare Practices

Results of the 2019 Big Survey are in. Here’s a sample.




SEEMS THAT EVERYTHING is bigger in the South, according to INVISION’s Big Survey. The Northeast is home to a disproportionate number of smaller vision businesses, while bigger practices are most common in the South. Thirty-one percent of the small stores/practices in our survey — those with less than 1,500 square feet — were in the Northeast, while 41 percent of the big ones — those over 3,000 square feet — were in the South. These large operations were mostly either private practices with a focus on retail or medical model private practices with a small dispensary.
