ODG USA @ Vision Expo East

The new US group of OneDollarGlasses was very excited to attend the Vision Expo East for the first-time in March 2018. Held at the Javitz Convention center in New York City, Vision Expo East was an optical related conference with tens of thousands of participants. It was fantastic opportunity to gain valuable exposure to many vision related companies and others in the optical field.  Anna-Lena Baumann, Jen Hyde, and Kathy Smith met with many individuals and business representatives including some leaders in the field such as Kovin Naidoo, formerly with Brien Holden Vision Institute. Two other volunteers helped form the dynamic team; Laura Einwanger and Markus Baumann.

Many who stopped by were amazed at how cleverly the glasses were produced. The interest and desire for vision-based businesses to give back and help others who cannot afford glasses was inspiring and exciting for our team! We look forward to some collaborations in the future.
