Your Guide to Vision Expo East 2022
When it comes to staying on top of the game and providing the best products and services to our clients, we know how important it is to be on the lookout for important events in the eyecare industry — which is why we are excited to tell you about the upcoming Vision Expo Conference.
What Is the Vision Expo Conference?
Ever since its inception in 1986, the Vision Expo Conference has been an event for eyecare professionals, buyers, influencers, practice managers, technology leaders, and more to come together for exhibits, educational courses, and special events. It markets itself as the place where “eyecare meets eyewear” and “education, fashion, and innovation mingle.” It represents an exciting opportunity for everyone in the eyecare industry to learn more about everything from the latest eyewear fashion trends to advances in medical technology.
The Vision Expo Conference is split into two events — Vision Expo West, typically held in Las Vegas, and Vision Expo East, typically held in New York. Both events offer a similar lineup of activities. This year, the Vision Expo East will be held from March 31 to April 3, 2022, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York. Vision Expo West will be held later in the year, during September.
Notable Exhibits and Education Opportunities
Exhibits at the Vision Expo East are split into two main areas: the Eyewear Neighborhoods and the Lens + Medical Technology Neighborhoods. The Eyewear Neighborhoods are dedicated to showcasing extensive collections of new eyewear from industry icons and ubiquitous brands, emerging talent, independent designers, and ateliers with artisanal products. Exhibitors include brands like Essilor-Luxottica, Modo, DeRigo REM, Gold & Wood Eyepieces, Etnia Barcelona, Marcolin, and more. A new exhibit, titled NOW by Vision Expo, will debut at the event, meant to spotlight new eyewear trends.
In the Lens + Medical Technology Neighborhoods, guests can learn about and experience the most advanced technologies in eyecare, including lens and coating technology, lens processing techniques, disease management solutions, contact lens innovations, eyecare practice optimization, and more. Some notable exhibitors are Alcon, Novartis, Eschenbach, CooperVision, and more. These exhibits will be open from April 1 to 3.
On the education side, Vision Expo East offers hundreds of hours of accredited education on a wide range of topics regarding the future of eyecare. There is optometrist education meant to immerse attendees in cutting-edge developments for better patient care, such as the latest technology and trends in the diagnosis and treatment of common eye diseases and business growth. There is also the OptiCon @ Vision Expo education package, which covers six key areas: optical technology, allied health, contact lens, practice management and business solutions, and ABO and NCLE basic and advanced exam review courses. Aside from that, there are also myriad courses for other professionals working in corporate management, service providers, and others.
