VM's Eye² Zone Puts Vision Innovations in Expo Spotlight

Eyecare professionals who want to better understand the business and clinical benefits of wearable technology and other new vision innovations can get a close-up look at some of the latest, most advanced products at Vision Monday's Eye² Zone, a special exhibit at International Vision Expo in New York.

"Vision Monday's Eye² Zone features groundbreaking wearable technologies that have the potential to revolutionize the eyewear industry and shape how patients view the world. International Vision Expo funds this program because we believe this investment is essential to provide eyecare professionals an opportunity to see, touch and test non-traditional eyewear technologies that are often only showcased at events such as the Consumer Electronics Show," said Deborah Castor, vice president of shows and meetings for the Vision Council, which sponsors Vision Expo.
