MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.— Envision is inviting optical industry professionals to take part in the organization’s ninth annual Envision Conference, a multidisciplinary low vision rehabilitation and research conference dedicated to improving the quality of low vision care through professional collaboration, advocacy, research and education. The conference is scheduled to take place here on Sept. 17 to 20, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis.

The organization also announced that Rebecca Kammer, OD, PhD, Diplomate Low Vision, FAAO will present the keynote address.

Envision Conference 2014 will offer continuing education in multiple sessions throughout the three days in which optometrists, ophthalmologists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation therapists, licensed visual therapists, nurses, vision researchers and other low vision rehabilitation professionals can earn CE credits, according to the organization. Both clinical and education and research presentations will be featured, as well an exhibit hall with book publishers, optometric suppliers and vendors displaying the latest in technology and services in vision rehabilitation, Envision said.

The Envision Conference can also be beneficial for special education teachers, community agency personnel, government policy makers, rehabilitation engineers and assistive technology practitioners and suppliers, Envision said.

“I am excited and truly humbled to have been selected as the Keynote Speaker for Envision Conference 2014,” said Kammer. “The multidisciplinary approach of so many expert and dedicated practitioners coming together to share knowledge offers an unparalleled opportunity to advance low vision research and rehabilitation, and the fact that Envision is providing a forum to discuss the challenges of bringing these advances to the global stage is a true testimony to the organization’s commitment to improving the quality of life of those with vision loss. I look forward to speaking and meeting with many new and established colleagues this September.”
