As sponsors and active members of the Optical Women's Association (OWA), we wanted to take the time to share with you two events the organization will be holding at Vision Expo West. If you've never been to an OWA event before, trust us, it's a good time! If you haven't yet booked your tickets for Vegas, we encourage you to do so now. Vision Expo is a great opportunity for gaining CE credits, learning about frame trends, experiencing eyecare technology first hand, and networking with colleagues at great events like these. Be sure not only to visit OWA's events, but stop by the VisionWeb booth (#MS9035) while you're there.
