Free Rudy Project Stuff?!

TOTALLY! Yes, your read that right and your eyes are not deceiving you. Our rep with Rudy Project just told us about a promotion that's running for a limited time (until they run out), that when you spend $175 or more on Rudy glasses from us, you get a FREE gift. There are a ton of items to choose from: helmets, duffels, cycling jerseys or shorts, extra set of polarized lenses, or casual sunglasses!

Transitions Academy: Day 3

Today was my third and final day in Orlando, FL. Click here to if you would like to go back and read what I learned on day two. I am here at the invitation only Transitions Academy. This is a great conference that is chock-a-block full of workshops and courses on continuing educational topics in the optical industry. The picture is from when I jumped up out of my chair and grabbed a selfie with the very entertaining emcee as she walked by my table during the awards ceremony.  This was a fun and informative trip. I am super grateful that I was invited.

Transitions Academy: Day 2

Transitions Academy

I am all about continuing my optical education, which is why this cold Oklahoma February seemed like good time for a conference. A conference somewhere warm and sunny perhaps. So today I arrived in Orlando for Transitions Academy. You know that cool technology that makes it possible for us to enjoy prescription lenses that darken in the sun? Transitions makes a nice variety of different kinds of photochromic lenses. I am here learning about those and other optical related areas of study. I have to give Transitions props for hosting this event in the beautiful Rosen Shingle Creek hotel in sunny Orlando, FL. This place is beautiful! I am looking forward to the rest of my trip, and I plan...
