POP-UP POLL: Fabulous Frames – Results

ODs are practicing what they preach in terms of multiple pairs of eyewear. Last week’s Pop-up Poll showed that the vast majority of ODs who responded own more than one pair of prescription eyewear.

Specifically among women ODs, 78 percent say they have more than one pair of prescription eyewear. Far fewer male ODs responded to the survey, but they all responded that they own 2-3 pairs. Furthermore, the responses show that men and women who aren’t ODs but work in the industry in some way also appreciate multiple pairs. Fifty-three percent said that they own 2-3 pairs of prescription eyewear. Only 10 percent said they own only one pair.
