Optometry’s Meeting distinguishes itself with a comprehensive lineup of contemporary optometric education intended to ensure our profession not only continues to excel in meeting Americans’ primary eye health care needs but also stays atop of optometry’s rapidly advancing scope of practice nationwide. This year’s lineup includes several new mediums and modalities of delivering quality contemporary education with over 190 hours of expert-led continuing education (CE) and professional development (22 hours of CEE/TQ) offered to doctors, paraoptometrics and students. Optometry’s Meeting in Washington, D.C., truly delivers education that supports every member of the care team.

Individual CE courses have seating available on a first-come-first-served basis and it’s recommended that attendees queue outside the course room 10 minutes in advance where possible.

Education Credits

Doctor of optometry courses will be COPE or AOA CE Hours* approved unless otherwise noted on the CE grids. The AOA will offer 22 hours of Continuing Education Examination/Transcript Quality (CEE/TQ) credit at this year's Optometry's Meeting (if applicable, scan the QR code at the end of your CEE/TQ course to register for the examination component; attendees must request the course examination through the QR code process and the exam must be completed within the testing window in order to be claimed).

All optometric staff courses will be approved by the Commission on Paraoptometric Certification (CPC) for the CE credit and are acceptable for certification renewal requirements.

*AOA CE Hours satisfy most state boards’ CE requirements and are respected by many organizations within the practice of optometry; however, it is advised that attendees verify their state board requirements prior to selecting courses to attend.*
