Millennials concerned with eye wear choice, risks related to culture

August 31, 2015

A survey conducted by Wakefield for Transitions Optical Inc., focused on the preferences of eye wear consumers and their expectations of eye care professionals, according to a press release. The individuals surveyed were between ages 18 and 34, considered the Millennial generation.

“Cultural sensitivity, giving back and having the freedom to express their personal style all emerged as being highly valued among Millennial eyeglass wearers – and are also core values of growing ethnic minority groups that make up such a large portion of this generation,” Patience Cook, director, North America marketing, for Transitions, said in the release.
