Optometrists need to participate in continuing education (CE) efforts in order to maintain their licenses to practice.  These seminars, first offered in 1992, are an annual event moderated by Kathy Kelley, OD and sponsored by the Cornea Research Foundation of America and Price Vision Group. The entire day is focused on optometrist education with ample opportunities to hear contemporary experts on topics of concern to them, to examine and discuss the latest in vision care products and to network informally with one another over lunch and during the breaks.
