Vision Expo East to host student competition

Students will be tested on their optical knowledge in a fast-paced quiz

Vision Expo

A new competition will take place at Vision Expo East in March (21–24, Jacob Javits Centre) that will test students on their optical knowledge.

OptiCon @ Vision Expo and the National Federation of Opticianry Schools (NFOS) will make its debut the NFOS College Bowl at the event in New York.

It will be a fast-paced quiz with one of 12 participants winning a cash prize and a trophy.

Executive director of the American Board of Opticianry and National Contact Lens Examiners, Jim Morris, said: “We’re looking forward to bringing all generations of the optical industry together for the NFOS College Bowl. The event will present an exciting, interactive opportunity for students to bond with each other as well as network with experienced veterans.”

The competition, which is sponsored by Hoya Vision Care, will take place on Saturday 23 March from 6–7pm.
