Continuing Education Program to Kick Off Vision Expo East

NEW YORK—The continuing education program will kick off International Vision Expo East on Thursday, March 22 featuring sought-after speakers from a variety of fields and boasting more than 325 hours of continuing education.

This year’s Conference program has been divided into five areas of interest—Allied Health, Business Solutions, Clinical, Contact Lenses and Optical Technology—to make it easier for attendees to create personalized education strategies and practice to the fullest extent of their license. Informative classroom instruction connects to hands-on knowledge throughout the exhibits, allowing conferees to learn about and source the most products in one place. The three Os can compare and test drive the equipment first-hand before selecting which ideas and technologies to implement into a practice.

New this year, continuing education will be located on Level 1, the same level as the Lenses & Processing Technology, Medical & Scientific and Low Vision Pavilions, as a result of the ongoing Javits Center renovation project. ODs are invited to relax and enjoy networking in the all new Optometry Club, which will also located on Level 1.
