The Duchess styled her blonde locks into loose waves and put on a shimmery face of makeup, accentuating her eyes with dark mascara.
The event celebrated vital advances in eye health, from virtual reality simulation and training with FundamentalVR, to artificial intelligence to support eye disease diagnosis, to Women Led Green Vision centers, which address gender-related barriers to seeking eye care.
It comes over the weekend, as Sophie joined the royal family at Windsor Castle to celebrate Easter and earlier this week visited HMS Daring in Portsmouth, while the moored Royal Navy destroyer undergoes maintenance and refurbishment.
The mother-of-two watched a presentation on the progress of the ship’s lengthy renovation and refurbishment program before completing a tour around the ship.
To board the ship, the radiant Duchess has traded in her smart cream suit for full protective gear, including overalls, safety shoes, goggles, a helmet, and gloves.
Prince Edward’s wife teamed her suit with a white shirt, and added a touch of glamor to her ensemble with a pair of elegant blue earrings.
She completed her chic look with a bit of glamorous makeup, while keeping her blonde locks in a sophisticated look.
Elsewhere on Sunday, the Duchess appeared to put her all out when attending Easter service alongside senior members of the royal family.

Sophie commanded attention in her cream Philip Treacy hat, which has a wide brim and an eye-catching rise, as she arrived at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
She teamed her hoodie with a pink Catherine Walker coat, knee-high boots, and a matching clutch.
Attending the royal event alongside her husband, Prince Edward, 59, and their 15-year-old son James, Earl of Wessex, Sophie looked effortlessly elegant in her first appearance at the annual service since becoming Duchess of Edinburgh.
It’s unclear why Sophie and Edward’s daughter Lady Louise, 19, weren’t at an event on Sunday.
Edward and Sophie, formerly Countess and Earl of Wessex, were granted their new titles in February, nearly six months after Queen Elizabeth II’s death in September.
The Duchess styled her blonde locks in loose waves and put on a shimmery face of makeup, accentuating her eyes with dark mascara.
Sunday’s service was likely a bittersweet one for members of the company, as it was the first without the late Queen – and the second to mark the death of Prince Philip.
Other royals who looked their best on Sunday included the Prince and Princess of Wales, who brought their children Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four, to the event.
Also present were the Tyndalls, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Princess Anne, who was accompanied by her husband, Vice-Admiral Sir Timothy Lawrence.
Following in the footsteps of his late mother, Queen Elizabeth, who always held Easter court at her beloved Berkshire residence, Charles was accompanied by his wife, The Queen Consort.
A staple of the royal calendar, last year saw the now Prince and Princess of Wales bask in the spring sunshine with their two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The Princess of Wales and the Queen Consort both chose royal blues as their favorite outfit for Easter Sunday, with the mother-of-three arriving hand-in-hand with her youngest son, Prince Louis, who was joining the family at the service. for the first time.
