The Optometric Business Tracker

As eyecare businesses are getting back to business, exam and sales data reveals a recovery. Here, EB partners with GPN to provide coast-to-coast practice data revealing trends in sales + exams.

As eyecare professionals continue to ramp up across the country, practices from coast to coast are experiencing a solid recovery from the Covid-19 crisis closures.

Real-time data from GPN covering over 2,900 practice locations across the U.S., served up in partnership with Eyecare Business, reveals the journey to recovery. We are tracking practice exams + frame, lens, and contact lens sales from coast to coast on a weekly and monthly basis.

“Weeks of exam and revenue growth is starting to flatten as more of the country gets back to pre-Covid-19 levels,” says Evan Kestenbaum, co-founder and COO of GPN. “It’s encouraging to see 40% of those locations grew last week over last year in both exams and revenue. We’re aware of the increased number of Covid-19 cases as the cities are reducing precautions and will continue to evaluate the local impacts.”
