Vision Expo

Vision Expo

Presented by The Vision Council and RX Global, Vision Expo is the complete event for ophthalmic professionals, where eyecare meets eyewear, and education, fashion and innovation mingle. Held twice a year, Vision Expo East and Vision Expo West are trade-only conferences and exhibitions designed to connect the vision community and promote industry growth.  In the Vision Expo Exhibit Hall, eyecare providers can discover trends, interact with new technologies and access innovative products and services. More industry professionals make their buying decisions at Vision Expo than at any other annual industry event in North America. The Vision Expo education program is driven by the profession, offering content of the highest quality and relevance to enhance overall patient care.

Revenue from Vision Expo supports The Vision Council’s mission to promote growth in the vision industry through education, advocacy, research, consumer outreach, strategic relationship building and industry forums.
