It’s Showtime!

After a three-year hiatus, Vision Expo East is back in New York. Great exhibitors. Terrific education. And, a lot of fun, too. The dates? March 31 to April 3. The place? Jacob Javits Center in New York City.

While you’re there, be sure to stop by the Shamir booth, #F5033. Shamir is one of more than 360 exhibitors that will be on hand to share products and programs with attendees.

Besides meeting with Shamir’s great team, you can also learn more about its exciting new releases, Glacier Expression AR coating and an update to the Autograph Intelligence progressive lens.

Tip: “No matter what role you play on your team, there’s education for you.”

Don’t forget Expo’s great education lineup, as well. It includes hundreds of hours of accredited education with topics ranging from disease management and practice growth to spectacle lens innovation, eyewear trends, and more. As show organizers say, “No matter what role you play on your team, there’s education for you.”
