NEW YORK—The Optometric Center of New York (OCNY), the affiliated foundation of the State University of New York (SUNY) College of Optometry, hosted its 15th Annual Eyes on New York Gala at The Plaza here on March 16, 2018. Industry leaders Kenneth Lombart and Richard Lombart, co-founders of Lombart Instrument, were honored during the festivities and Haag-Streit USA’s Steve Juenger served as the gala’s corporate chair.

The signature event also celebrated Our Vision for Children, SUNY Optometry’s capital campaign for a new Center for Pediatric Eye Care.

“Proceeds from the 2018 Eyes on New York Gala will directly support our pediatric-focused and family-centered eyecare services for children in the New York City metropolitan area,” said Barbara Saltzman, OCNY president. “And we are quite pleased to honor the Lombart brothers for their decades of leadership in the ophthalmic industry.”
