  • Peer-to-Peer dinners to discuss the latest trends and opportunities for your practice.
  • Annual Meeting special event support to make PECAA’s biggest event of the year even more memorable.


Member Resources – our newly updated website resource for industry professionals contains easy-to-find tools, POP, in-office videos, education, and availability for Transitions family of products. – the newly reimagined Eyeglass Guide allows your patients to learn more about why eye health is so important and learn more about eyewear options before their appointment. The updated resource contains a new Eyeglass Builder that allows patients to take a short lifestyle quiz, then build their own simulated pair of eyewear.
