NEW YORK—On June 6, both the optical industry and the wider world celebrated National Eyewear Day. Founded in 2016 when Zyloware submitted it to the Registrar at National Day Calendar, National Eyewear Day falls on June 6 every year and is dedicated to bringing awareness to comprehensive eye exams and overall eye health. Zyloware heads up the celebrations each year, offering a variety of free resources to help everyone get involved.

This weekend we’re taking a look at how people celebrated this special industry holiday—both within and outside the industry itself. From influencers and celebrities to ODs and opticians, National Eyewear Day took center stage earlier this week.
