Vision Expo 2015


What a fantastic day! VRC’s Second Annual Vision Expo took place on Wednesday, May 6, 2015. Vision Expo 2015 was a day filled with over 25 organizations that helped inform the community of resources that are readily available for those who are blind or visually impaired. The Expo featured free vision screenings and many other services and opportunities for the blind, visually impaired, and their caregivers.

Eye Consultants of PA was this year’s Event Sponsor. Vision Expo Committee Chair, Kelli Gerth, from The Loomis Company, commented, “The Vision Expo was a tremendous event last year and this year it will be bigger and better! It is such an excellent resource for those who have their sight and those who have visual difficulties. Most people eventually experience some vision loss. This Expo will help people deal with their difficulties or be prepared when the impairments occur.”

With over 25 Eye Care related organizations that advocate vision health, this event was a fantastic opportunity to meet with industry leaders on topics such as Driving and Aging, Estate Planning, Home Organization, and Medicare.

WEEU’s Mike Faust broadcasted from 9am to noon.
