It has been an absolute pleasure hosting the Jury Meet for this year.

All of these extremely knowledgeable and influential people of the eyewear industry were in one room shortlisting the best in eyewear and eye care technology that the opticians in the Middle East should be voting for! The entries flew from the entire world and the enthusiasm of the participants has been overwhelming.
Hundreds of entries arrived for the seventeen distinct categories that passed through expert scrutiny. The top 5 products in each category are being announced as nominees and are now available for online and offline voting starting today, that is, September, 1, 2017.
Based on the algorithm created by VisionPlus Magazine, the assessment is easier for the jury based on different attributes that each category must hold. Every product gets its points based on criteria that are unique to the particular category. The analysis by a panel ensures that there is no risk of a bias being exercised towards any of the entries.
