Dr. Farrah’s Big Apple Vision Expo
I along with our Optician Sonja recently attended the 29th annual International Vision Expo East at the Javitz Conference Center in New York City. This is the largest vision conference in North America attended by well over 50 000 eyecare professionals. Although I have attended this conference several times, this year was different as not only did I attend as an Optometrist but as a practice owner. Our mission was to bring back the latest and greatest in eyecare and eyewear to the patients of Eyedeology. I believe we did quite well and would like share our experience with you.
What is New to Eyedeology from NYC?
- Zoria Boost Eyelash Intensifying Serum
– A natural eyelash serum to to naturally stimulate, strengthen and condition eyelashes creating a dramatically longer, fuller, darker look. Ideal for individuals with sensitive eyes, those who currently have lash extensions or those not wanting a medicated product such as Latisse.
- TOMS EYEWEAR – One for One. The collection was released in NYC and Eyedeology is the 1st to introduce TOMS Eyewear and Sunwear to Calgary. Dr. Farrah had the opportunity to meet founder of TOMS Blake Mycoskie in NYC. Come check out this great initiative first launched in SHOES and now EYEWEAR.
