9 a.m. 2 Courses TBD (Business Management)

David Friedfeld

Warby Parker is a fantastic retailer whose product selection, pricing, knowledge of consumers, and online expertise is changing the way eye wear is being dispensed.  To strongly compete in the ever-changing optical industry, eye care professionals should be aware of that this company is doing right.  Learn how to take a more creative approach to your marketing efforts, offer an outstanding customer service experience and company culture, and differentiate yourself from the competition.

Laura Frezza and Robert Wallner

This segment will provide an overview in the ocular pathologies that are often diagnosed without remedy.
