One of the most impressive things about Hilco, is they make it very easy to make a one stop shop for all your optical and lab supplies needs. The eyecare products they offer fill up a 500 page catalogue!
It is with great pleasure and honor that Hilco, the worlds largest supplier of optical accessories and product has SIGNED WITH US as a sponsor!!!! If you can actually believe this, I actually drove through the wilds of Massachusetts and visited their office! I had to do that because I wanted to meet them and they are jam-packed at Vision Expo.
Now if you remember Hilco from the good old days, you used them for nosepads, temple tips, screws and tools. You made have also used them for eyeglass repairs. All of which they still offer but today they have grown and expanded into almost every single product that you need in eyeglass accessories, optical lab supplies, eyewear, sunglasses and even medical products. You can even get a discount if you order Hilco Products from Vision West.
