This year has seen an unprecedented disruption in the conference schedule of the vision therapy industry. In addition, many vision therapy providers and patients are facing serious hardship in providing and receiving vision care due to reduced ability to travel and in some cases mandated clinic closures.
In response, Vivid Vision has partnered with ACBO, BABO, COVD, VTC, NORA, ISVA, FEDOPTO, ALDOO, and VISION THERAPY PARENTS UNITE to bring you the first-ever teleconference on vision therapy telemedicine. With ongoing seminars, workshops, demos, and online training, we can continue to expand our knowledge and skills to provide the most current vision care that our patients rely on.
Content is applicable to vision care professionals including optometrists, vision therapists, optometry students, residents, and other allied health professionals.
Best practices, theory, and everything in between
Vision Therapy for Primary Care, Sports Vision, Prescribing for Astigmatism, Reading Based Learning Difficulties, How to increase your vision therapy sign ups post COVID, Vision Therapy Demonstrations, Constructing Visual Space: SILO, SOLI, and Constancy, A Nutritional Approach to Treating Dry Eyes, The Infant Examination from a Developmental Perspective, Vision and Autism Spectrum Disorders, Syntonic Phototherapy Grand Rounds, TBI Grand Rounds, Strabismus/Amblyopia Grand Rounds, and MUCH MORE!
