Ways to Attend Transitions Academy

Industry professionals should let their Transitions® lens supplier know they would like to register for Transitions Academy. Many lens suppliers are providing opportunities for customers to attend. In addition to the opportunity supplied by your lens supplier, two NEW programs are now offered:

  • Practices enrolled in the Essilor Preferred Rewards program can redeem their points for Transitions Academy registration and hotel.
  • Many optical labs are also participating in the Road to Transitions Academy where every pair of Transitions sold can earn you points. Points can be redeemed for Transitions Academy registration and hotel.
