As the vision industry prepares to gather in Las Vegas, we at International Vision Expo would like to extend our sincerest thoughts to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

We have received an incredible amount of interest and concern from Vision Expo supporters, attendees and exhibitors, looking for ways in which they can help those affected by these events.

The vision industry is and always has been a close, supportive community. To this end, Vision Expo supports Optometry’s Fund for Disaster Relief (OFDR), a program of Optometry Cares – The AOA Foundation.

For the many members of the industry who have reached out in search of ways to show their support, we encourage you join behind this important effort. This Fund provides immediate assistance in the wake of natural disasters.

Details on how to support OFDR will be made available throughout the Vision Expo West show floor lounges, food courts and registration areas, or you can visit to learn more about these disaster relief efforts, donate or request support from OFDR.

If these storms are impacting your attendance to Vision Expo West, we have a dedicated team ready to help at 1-800-811-7151.
