    About the Survey

    Global Attitudes and Perceptions About Vision Care was conducted on an economically viable population of consumers ages 18-54 in 13 countries -- Australia, Brazil, China, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

    A total of 6,500 adults ages 18-54 (a nationally representative cross section of 500 adults per country) were surveyed between April and July, 2008. Online interviews were conducted in all countries but China and Russia, where interviews were conducted via telephone. National representation was based on gender, age, household income and geographic region. To ensure economic viability, survey respondents were screened for minimum household incomes based on specific standards and guidelines for each country. The "Global" numbers in this report are calculated by a straight-line average of the data from the 13 countries.
