“Vision Expo is an essential in-person event for our company, and this year’s show was everything we had hoped for! The strong attendance and robust programming provided countless opportunities to forge new relationships and network with industry partners. Exhibiting our extensive line of value-oriented eyewear and providing live demos of our virtual try-on platform to hundreds of eyecare professionals over 3 days is highly impactful to our organization. The Vision Council meetings also provided excellent insight to our industry.”
