In 2016, an estimated $390.05 billion was given to U.S. charities according to Giving USA. “Why is Steve sharing this fact with me?” you ask. In my opinion, the foundation on which Optometry is built is giving back. Continue reading

This past month, it has been such an eye-opening experience to reflect on what it means to move “Forward Together.” From how “grit” is a uniquely human quality that helps us to persevere, to how we are all connective tissue in the optometry industry, we are starting a much larger conversation about advancing our communities through top-notch optometric care.

When my youngest daughter Annie was four years old, we were vacationing in Hawaii enjoying the beach and the quiet pace of life. One night as we were getting ready to go out for dinner, I asked Annie, “Where are your shoes?”  She innocently recalled that the last time she’d seen them was three or four days earlier. Isn’t that what vacation is all about? That moment has been an anchor for me for many years – a reminder to live in the now. It applies in my work life as well. Maybe you have a similar story.  Continue reading

The Ultimate Field Guide to Vision Expo West

Crowds, booths, classes, oh my! There’s a lot going on at Vision Expo West, so we’ve compiled some must-know tips for VEW first timers.

Las Vegas Sign

Don’t Go Hangry (hunger and anger aren’t a good combo in Vegas)
Head over to the Food Court no later than 11:30 a.m. By noon, you’re more likely to win the jackpot than avoid a massive line.

To avoid the afternoon crash, stop by Eyefinity booth #17114 at 2:00 p.m. every day for a free pick-me-up snack.

When You Gotta Go…
Use the restrooms in Medical & Scientific Pavilion. These hidden gems are the least-used restrooms on the show floor.

Layer Up
Bring a light sweater to have on the show floor. While the strip can feel like the Sahara, the Sands Expo and Convention Center is cold enough for a penguin to think he’s home.

Grab a Bag
Be prepared to receive a wheelbarrow’s worth of flyers, giveaways, and business cards. Don’t forget to pick up a free Premier bag when you first enter the show floor.

Take these tips with you to VEW and come by our booths #17114 or #MS12043!
