According to a survey of 2,000 adults in the U.K., consumers in the 18- to 34-year-old age group spent an average of £293 (€342-$414) per year on their eyeglasses or contact lenses, about £100 (€117-$141) more than older people, The Optician reports. Of those 18- to 34-year-olds, 71 percent said that the expense has made them review other options for their eyesight correction needs, and 42 percent that they would consider eye surgery if it were not too expensive. The research was commissioned by Ophtalmic Consultants of London Vision, a London-based eye surgery clinic.
