- Can I try on clothes and sunglasses? YES! If you plan to try on clothing, we suggest wearing leggings and a tight fitting top so you can just slip clothes on and off over them and not have to go full monty.

Our team returned from the International Vision Expo in New York last week and we thought we’d share a few of our favorite takeaways. We love attending industry events like the Vision Expo because it helps us stay up to date on the latest trends in eyewear and stay educated about the most cutting edge technology and advancements in eye care. Here’s a quick day by day recap!
Our team arrived at the Vision Expo and jumped right in to educational courses and learned about the latest trends in retail eyewear.
Tanim and Nick met with the Tom Ford team to see the latest designs in their eyewear collection (it’s good y’all!). They also visited The Loft to check out our favorite boutique and independent eyewear brands like Bevel. They also got to meet and peek Blake Kuwahara’s line and see brands Kirk&Kirk and Salt. What that means for you: tons of stylish new frames heading your way very soon.
They spent their evening on the Tom Ford cruise checking out the Statue of Liberty!
Saturday was a packed day! Tamin checked out all the latest designs from some of the most popular eyewear designers and met with new brands that we’ll be bringing to the store, including Kyme, State and Toms.
While Tanim was checking out eyewear, Nick headed to education courses to learn about the latest in retinal and digital imaging tools from Zeiss, Nidek, and Marco.
Our team got to meet Coco & Breezy (designers of a seriously fab eyewear line)!
What this means for you: even more designer frames and new lines will be coming to eye2eye!
Our team continued their hunt for new frames and fun products like Nerdwax and Croakies spec cords to bring to the store.
They wrapped up their time at the Vision Expo attending pop up talks and meeting designers and prepared to head home with new lines, new eyewear and lots of information for the rest of the eye2eye team.
