Association to ZEISS ‘YOU&EYE’ AWARDS

ZEISS ‘YOU&EYE’ AWARDS is a unique initiative that will celebrate the excellence in Indian optical trade. Through this initiative, ZEISS is focusing on reaching out to the opticians in India who have contributed towards the growth of the trade. Keeping the process transparent, the ZEISS ‘YOU&EYE’ AWARDS will give opticians a chance to claim fame and recognition by inviting their customers to vote for them

ZEISS had wanted to bring this kind of advances to the forefront and found a like-minded partner in ‘YOU&EYE’ to take this forward, thus ZEISS ‘YOU&EYE’ AWARDS was formed. Through this award program we plan to put optical retail practitioners on a platform where they can showcase their innovations and in turn raise the bar in the industry
