Education on a high note

It all starts with the renowned education program. The 2024 Optometry’s Meeting offers over 250 hours of CE and professional development across more than 187 courses, ranging from clinical lectures to hands-on workshop opportunities with optometry’s rapidly advancing scope of practice. Optometry’s Meeting delivers not only the CE you need but the education your practice needs, including 57 hours of CE devoted to integrated, doctor-paraoptometric education.

  • #DYK Doctors can save 10 hours and see 11 more patients each week with a well-trained, certified paraoptometric staff? That’s how much time doctors say they recapture by delegating nonphysician tasks to trained staff—and why Optometry’s Meeting is the staff training opportunity your practice craves with up to 32 credits available for paraoptometrics.
