Education Courses

Optometry’s Meeting distinguishes itself with a comprehensive lineup of contemporary optometric education intended to ensure our profession not only continues to excel in meeting Americans’ primary eye health care needs but also stays atop of optometry’s rapidly advancing scope of practice nationwide. This year’s lineup includes several new mediums and modalities of delivering quality contemporary education with over 190 hours of expert-led continuing education (CE) and professional development (22 hours of CEE/TQ) offered to doctors, paraoptometrics and students. Optometry’s Meeting in Washington, D.C., truly delivers education that supports every member of the care team.
