Self-Directed Vision

Consumers take matters into their own hands when it comes to optical health

Implications - Health-conscious consumers recognize that a dependency on technological devices can lead to eyestrain and vision reduction. Rather than relying on expensive health care professionals, consumers are taking action by monitoring their own optical health, modifying their devices and seeking at-home solutions. This reflects a greater trend towards autonomous, self-directed and preventative health care.
