KidSight was delighted to attend the 2020 Missouri Optometric Association Conference on October 16th. The event was safely held at the Chateau on the Lake, overlooking the beautiful scenery of Branson, MO. In the exhibit hall, we shared the details of our vision screening program and featured our current partnership opportunities. We also hosted a raffle for the attendees, giving them an opportunity to win a bottle of bourbon whiskey.

This year’s conference looked a little different from previous years, incorporating masks, social distancing, and lots of hand sanitizer. Yet, KidSight was still able to cultivate many great connections with the attendees. We met numerous individuals who possessed a large interest in pediatric vision health, and who shared our common goal of making vision care more accessible.

At KidSight’s booth, attendees shared stories about all the screening referrals who entered their practice. By hearing their praise and excitement around serving children like KidSight referrals, it solidified the importance of what we do. It was also enjoyable to discuss the impact our partnership opportunities can have, because partnering with us ensures that more children across Missouri receive the vision care they need.

By the end of the exhibit, our candy bowl was a little less full, a bottle of bourbon was sent off to the lucky winner, and our sponsorship packets were in the hands of attendees who cared about children’s eyesight just as much as we do.
