What makes this meeting unique?
This meeting is one of the last of it's kind where direct optometric vision therapist to optometric vision therapist education is provided. With a heavy emphasis on workshop style vs. didactic learning. Granted, we do occasionally invite an optometrist to come and teach. This meeting is for optometric vision therapists by optometric vision therapists with the goal to implement therapy procedures the next time you walk into your vision therapy room. This meeting offers a family like environment with an unforgettable hospitality suite on Friday nights with food, drinks and door prizes.
