The VOA is proud to announce that the 2020 One-Day CE Conference will be held at the Hilton Richmond Hotel & Spa/Short Pump January 25-26. This year's Conference is being offered in conjunction with Dry Eye Boot Camp, which will be held on Saturday, featuring 6 hours of COPE approved CE. Sunday's One-Day CE Conference will feature 5 hours of continuing education. More information is listed below for each day.
Over the past few years, dry eye disease has become increasingly important to most every aspect of eye care. We’ve always known that dry eye can be uncomfortable and annoying. However, we now understand that it is a chronic and progressive disease, with a significant impact on vision performance, contact lens success, surgical outcomes, and quality of life. Standard CE courses, while important and necessary, rarely provide a call to action for doctors sitting on the sidelines, or for those that need just a little more confidence before embracing dry eye in their practices. Dry Eye Boot Camp was created to fill this void. Registration will begin Saturday at 7:00 am and the final course will end at 5:00 pm. Click here for the full agenda.
Sunday - One-Day CE Conference
The One-Day CE Conference will kick off Saturday evening with a Welcome Reception from 6:00-7:00 pm. On Sunday, the day will begin with a promotional breakfast. At 9:00 am, Dr. Douglas K. Devries will present Intense Pulse Light as Adjunctive Therapy in Treating MGD, followed by Premium IOLs Patient Evaluation, Lens Choice and Dealing with Problems, presented in conjuction with Dr. Damon Dierker. After a promotional lunch, Dr. Dierker will present AMD: Your Make The Call and Contemporary Glaucoma Management: An Interactive Approach. Sunday registration will begin at 7:30 am and the final course will end at 4:00 pm. Stay tuned for the complete program.
