46-million eye exams will go unused this year. It’s an amazing 33% of US eye doctor’s time. Why? New doctors are not very well known and don’t have enough patients. Established doctors have a few hard-to-fill exam times that regularly go empty. But unused exams are not just about the doctors.
90-million adults skip vision care. Half of the 180-million adults that would benefit from vision care will postpone care for two, three and four years. They need a new optometrist. They moved, changed jobs, or no longer in school. Their old eyeglasses work well enough. New eyeglasses are expensive. Finding a comfortable doctor is tough.
Half of adults that would benefit from eye care, 90-million, will see an eye doctor … the usual patients with vision insurance along with seniors as vision changes with age. About one-third pay cash. With an average exam and eyeglasses costing over $300 that’s a big cash purchase.
