The Optometry Times® EyeCon 2021 is not to be missed!

Impaired vision is a common disorder in the United States, with an estimated 12 million Americans aged 40 and older living with reduced vision. The number of Americans with impaired vision or blindness is predicted to soar in coming decades as a result of age and such chronic diseases as diabetes. However, the nation’s 46,000 optometrists have access to a growing armamentarium of medications and state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Recommend diagnostic approaches to correctly identify early presentations of both common and rare ocular diseases.
  • Apply recent guidelines and other evidence to the treatment of patients with ocular diseases.
  • Demonstrate the ability to use emerging clinical trial data to optimize patient treatment in the optometry setting.
  • Determine the most appropriate approaches to improve vision outcomes in patients with disease- and age-related vision concerns.
