The Latest on Consumer Habits and Preferences and More of What You Need to Know for September

The ‘Future of Benefits’

VSP Vision’s Global Innovation Center has released “The Future of Benefits” report that outlines the evolving ways shifts in the workforce are changing the way employee benefits are accessed and distributed. If you’re wondering how to attract and retain employees, adjusting the benefits you offer may be crucial. Key findings from the research include hybrid work increasing demands for lifestyle benefits like mental health services, flexible travel, and upskilling platforms; workers needing benefits to meet their unique stage-of-life like family planning resources; and employees wanting more access to navigate benefits menus seamlessly when, where, and how they want.

Consumer Habits and Preferences

The Vision Council has released its Consumer InSights Q2 2023 report which surveyed over 15,000 adults in the US aged 18 or older in the second quarter of 2023. The report finds that vision correction remains a key health concern for many Americans, with 93% of respondents utilizing some form of eyewear. Additional findings include 67% of respondents use Rx eyewear; and two of every three respondents reported some type of managed vision care coverage. A one-page summary, along with the full report, is available in The Vision Council’s Research Download Center complimentary to The Vision Council members with a paid option for non-members.

Multilingual Myopia Management

As part of efforts to advance the acceptance of myopia control and management as standard of care and provide global access, the newly published World Society of Pediatric Ophthalmology & Strabismus (WSPOS) Myopia Consensus Statement 2023 is now available in multiple languages thanks to support from CooperVision. The statement — which is now available in Portuguese, Spanish and French, in addition to English — concludes that there is “sufficient evidence to warrant the adoption of myopia prevention and control measures in clinical practice in children with progressive myopia.” Additional language translations including Arabic, Indonesian and Ukrainian are to come.
