PO-Extended Depth of Focus Lenses and Drops
This interactive course will discuss the recent intraocular lenses and drops that have been approved. We will discuss how Optometrists can use and educate patients on these new technologies that extend the depth of focus for patients. By simplifying defocus curves, we will be able to fully understand the visual results of these lenses and drops, which will allow us to better set expectations for our patients. Interactive cases, through electronic polling, will provide instantaneous feedback to optometrists, as they are involved in vision correction decision planning.

AOA and AFOS: ‘Cut through the noise’ and empower licensed doctors of optometry to provide greater access to care to veterans
Eye care is the third-most requested health service by veterans at the VA—and doctors of optometry provide the majority of that care. Yet, as the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) considers new national standards of practice for more than 50 health professions at its facilities, optometrists are making a winning case for expanding their role at an understaffed VA and are galvanizing against baseless attacks from organized medicine, ophthalmology and a few unbending legislators.
September is Paraoptometric Appreciation Month, celebrating optometric practice staff around the country. Two paraoptometric professionals who provide eye care as active-duty veterans in the United States Armed Forces share their stories.
