American Academy of Optometry Annual Meeting Attendees to Compete in the World’s Ultimate Eye Science Game

(PRESS RELEASE) WATERLOO, ONTARIO — Many of the world’s preeminent ocular researchers, educators, clinicians, and executives will travel to San Diego later this month, taking part in the American Academy of Optometry’s centennial celebration and annual meeting. As part of the festivities, the Academy has partnered with the Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) to host CORE Knowledge 3.0—the latest iteration of the world’s ultimate eye science game.

Available for game play within the Academy exhibit booth #537 during show hours, the immersive digital experience presents players with a range of rapid-fire, multiple choice questions covering a wide variety of basic and clinical ocular research topics. Points are added and deducted as participants race a two-minute clock, tapping their screens to correctly answer as many questions as possible before time runs out.

In addition to new and revised content developed by CORE, the Academy has provided a supplemental set of questions specific to the storied history of the association. Members of the International Association of Contact Lens Educators (IACLE) have also supplied new questions designed to challenge even the most confident participants.

“We are delighted to collaborate with Academy on this initiative—a fun and fitting way to look back on so many of its accomplishments over the past 100 years,” said Lyndon Jones, PhD, FCOptom, FAAO, FBCLA, director of CORE. “When CORE Knowledge 1.0 debuted at ARVO, it drew non-stop crowds, with players collectively answering nearly 15,000 questions over more than 1,100 games. With its completely refreshed design and upwards of 750 questions, we anticipate healthy competition in San Diego to become the champion.”

During the annual meeting, daily winners will receive prizes supplied by the Academy, as will the top three scorers overall during its three-day run. Live leaderboards will be prominently displayed in the Academy booth, helping fuel the competitive spirit of conference attendees from around the world.

Following the Academy annual meeting, the game will be made available for online play on laptops and mobile devices. Customized versions of CORE Knowledge are also available for license by manufacturers, educational institutions and ocular associations.
