NEW YORK—The 2024 Vision Monday Leadership Summit is fast approaching and promises to be an exciting and informative experience. With the theme "What's Your AI Acuity? Sharpening a Vision for the Future," the 17th annual Summit brings together influential thought leaders, business experts and vision care professionals to explore the critical decisions that leaders need to wrestle with to develop a clear-eyed view of the risks and rewards of AI implementation. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 13, and it boasts a new location at The Edison Ballroom, 240 West 47th Street, New York City.

Throughout the day, speakers will consider the practical dimensions of how this powerful new technology can supercharge elements of business and the profession, even as they navigate its complexities.
