The 117th Annual AOA Congress & 44th Annual AOSA Conference: Optometry's Meeting starts a day earlier on Wednesday, June 25, allowing attendees the opportunity to fill their plates from a CE buffet with more than 220 hours of educational selections across the four-day conference.

Future optometrists and paraoptometrics can enjoy the CE menu, as well, with all courses open to students and staff for no additional cost. Take a look at the CE schedules and specialty focused education tracks to customize your educational experience.

Get your hands on new CE

Optometry's Meeting offers a variety of CE programs that develop, maintain and improve the skillset of optometric practices through innovative coursework that will have attendees both engaged and educated.

We’re offering top-notch education for any type of interest an OD might have.

New this year, a multidisciplinary team of sports medicine practitioners from the Philadelphia medical community will lead a panel discussion on sports-related concussions with particular attention paid to the visual sequelae of concussion and the role of visual therapy in rehabilitation. The session will discuss concussive ramifications to not only the collegiate and professional athletes many of these physicians treat, but also how it can apply to the athletes in your community, says Ben Gaddie, O.D., AOA Continuing Education Committee chair.

Also, in a first for Optometry's Meeting, CE attendees can participate in a scleral contact lens-fitting workshop that puts participants in a hands-on setting for using and assessing scleral lenses.

Popular CE programs return, such as the Pardon the Objection series—a rapid-fire debate among expert panelists as they discuss current optometric issues against a running 10-minute clock. Participants also will find discussions from leading experts in glaucoma, billing and coding, and more.

"We've really tried to address all the different specialty areas within optometry with this selection of CE programs," Dr. Gaddie says. "We're offering top-notch education for any type of interest an OD might have."
