About Vision Expo West

Vision Expo West is the premier meeting hub for the ophthalmic sector, where eye care, eyewear, education, fashion, and innovation meet the eye. Each year, during the exhibition dates, the Venetian Expo venue welcomes the crème-of-the-crème from the world of optometrists, patient care researchers and practitioners. Vision Expo West invests in top-shelf education and the provision of hand-picked courses led by the most knowledgeable and experienced optometrists. The vibrant education package at Vision Expo West presents a valuable opportunity for practising opticians, contact lens professionals and others to benefit from ABO & NCLE approved courses. Visitors will be presented with the unmatched opportunity to learn and discover the cutting-edge technology implemented in diagnosing and treating common eye diseases.

The exhibition product offering is divided into two neighbourhoods to separate the technical part of optometry from the aesthetic. The LENS + Medical Technology Neighbourhoods offer optical tech and service providers a stage to exhibit their state-of-the-art lab equipment, imaging systems, advances in pharmaceuticals, lensmeters, low vision and much more. The visitors of the Eyewear Neighbourhood will be stunned by the lavish product sectors of The Park, The Union and The Suits. Truly remarkable is The Suits sector, where the top-shelf luxury house shines with their future-bringing eyewear and sunglasses designs.
