New Student Competition Comes to OptiCon @ Vision Expo East 2019

OptiCon @ Vision Expo and The National Federation of Opticianry Schools (NFOS) will debut the NFOS College Bowl at this year’s Vision Expo East. This fast-paced quiz competition will test 12 students from NFOS-member opticianry schools on their optical knowledge.

The NFOS College Bowl will challenge each competitor with optical-focused questions to determine the final champion. The winning student will receive a monetary prize, bragging rights and the NFOS College Bowl trophy for their college.

Attendees are encouraged to root on their favorite opticianry school and network with the next generation of opticians, contact lens technicians and ophthalmic allied professionals.

The NFOS College Bowl, sponsored by Hoya Vision Care, will take place in the Javits Center on Saturday, March 23 with the cocktail reception from 5:30 p.m.–6 p.m. followed by the competition from 6 p.m.–7 p.m.

OptiCon @ Vision Expo offers attendees a comprehensive package that includes up to 15 hours of ABO & NCLE approved continuing education, Exhibit Hall access, two lunch vouchers, tailored special events and discounted hotel rates. In addition to more than 75 hours of educational content developed by the OptiCon Advisory Board, OptiCon attendees can now take ABO & NCLE review courses and exams at OptiCon @ Vision Expo East.
