The world is so big yet so small.
Or is it the other way around? The world is so small yet so big?
With over 1100 vendors and 59,000 attendees from every corner of Earth, the MIDO 2019 eyewear show compacts the global eyewear industry into one location. Milan, Italy.
My sister and I flew in on a Friday afternoon. (Poor Sophie, she threw up a lot during the flight.)
Unbeknownst to me, it was Milan Fashion Week. I looked down.
Sweatpants are fashionable right?
Simple, it’s for you and your family. Our patients.
Sometimes you forget how big Earth is. Here’s a reminder, look at these population numbers:
Chino Hills: 80,000
United States: 327,000,000
To ensure you and your family are getting the highest standard of care and highest quality eyewear, we explore the world, looking for answers to your eyewear needs.
We don’t just explore what’s new in the U.S. because what’s new in the U.S. could be “what’s old” on a global scale.
This is why we fly to Italy to attend MIDO 2019, the largest international show dedicated to the global eyewear.

When traveling to a foreign country, there are 4 simple phrases that will always help you.
Hi (Ciao). Bye (Ciao). Thank you (Grazie)! You’re welcome (Prego)!
My sister and I were riding the Milan metro back to our hotel. It was crowded and luckily we secured seats.
During a stop, a group of elder ladies entered and one of them made eye contact with me.
I smiled at her and said “Ciao.”
She smiled back, “Ciao.” I offered my seat with my hands.
She sat down and smiled, “Grazie.”
I smiled back, “Prego.”
Apparently kindness is an universal language.
Ultra light weight and comfortable eyewear for you.

My sister and I landed in LAX on a Monday afternoon.
Jet lagged and tired, we were craving asian food.
On the drive back home my sister passed out. I looked at her and wondered, “Where to next?”
Paris? Perhaps Korea?
