Think About Your Eyes

In 1986, visionary leaders from The Vision Council partnered with Reed Exhibitions and created International Vision Expo to promote awareness of eye health. In those 30 years, The Vision Council has used the funds generated by International Vision Expo to create the market growth programs listed below and much more. These programs have generated over 16 billion consumer impressions for the eyecare services and eyewear products that you offer, and increased eye exams and eyewear sales.

In addition to offering an incomparable experience, and value, Vision Expo helps strengthen the entire profession through programs like Think About Your Eyes with commercials focusing on kids vision to capitalize on back-to-school preparations, and early detection of eye disease. More than 150 million Americans have been exposed to Think About Your Eyes messaging and coverage for the campaign has been featured in Parents, The Huffington Post, and SELF.
