Conference Lineup for 2013: Expanding the Field of Vision

NEW YORK—International Vision Expo & Conference bills itself as one of the most complete eyecare events, featuring sought-after speakers from a variety of fields and boasting more than 325 hours of continuing education for every role and experience level.

This year’s continuing education program has been divided into five areas of interest—Allied Health, Business Solutions, Clinical, Contact Lenses and Optical Technology—to make it easier for you to create personalized education strategies and practice to the fullest extent of your license. Informative classroom instruction connects to hands-on knowledge at the expansive exhibits, allowing you to learn about and source the most products in one place. Compare and test drive the equipment first-hand before choosing which ideas and technologies to implement into your practice.

Keep up with relevant practice management trends to ensure your business is utilizing best practices in processes, technology, management tactics, marketing, patient service and staffing.

You will learn proven business solutions that can increase efficiencies, reimbursements and secure the financial health of your practice.

Continuing education is once again located on Level 1 of the Javits Center, adjacent to the Medical & Scientific, Low Vision and Lenses & Processing Technology Pavilions. Optometrists are invited to relax and enjoy networking in the all new Conference Lounge, which is also located on Level 1. The lounge offers many amenities including coffee and refreshments.

Attendees can visit the Medical & Scientific Theatre (BOOTH 7581, Level 1) for free education sessions, many approved for CE credits, presented by exhibitors and held inside the exhibit hall, focusing on medical and scientific topics.

“I’ve taken continuing education at Vision Expo West for nine years and find the quality and variety of education to be excellent,” said Tim W. James, OD, Ken-Caryl Vision Center, Littleton, Colo. “I like to have the choice of medical/clinical-based optometry and business management classes at the same venue. A big draw for me to be at Vision Expo East is to take continuing education from speakers who don’t generally present on the West Coast, and of course, to take in the excitement and entertainment you can only find in the Big Apple.”

The expansive scope of education, products, trends and solutions at International Vision Expo East will expand your field of vision and keep you abreast of best practices for the care and treatment of your patients. Learn more at ■
