International Vision Expo East, held on March 18-21 in New York, saw a 4 percent increase in attendance compared with last year, according to preliminary figures. A final tally will be available around the beginning of May. The weekend included a concert on Saturday at the B.B. King Blues Club and Grill, featuring the EyeRock band, comprised of 25 musicians and singers from several optical companies. The four-hour event, which was sponsored by more than 20 optical companies and organizations, raised more than $125,000 for the OneSight Foundation of Luxottica, which provides free vision care and eyewear for the poor worldwide. Next year's Expo East will be held on March 17-20.
