The live, multi-city dinner discussions are designed to help eye care practitioners expand their expertise in specialty contact lenses and take their practice to the next level.




(PRESS RELEASE)STERLING, VA — Euclid Vision Corporation (Euclid), a global leader in advanced orthokeratology lenses and proactive myopia management initiatives, is joining forces with Visionary Optics to host multiple specialty contact lens dinner discussions in cities around the US. The program, Patient Selection to Practice Growth: A Guide to Specialty Contact Lenses, will bring eye care practitioners together to learn from industry experts and network with like-minded professionals who are committed to excellence in optometry. Designed to be both educational and interactive, the events feature dinner discussions that offer attendees the opportunity to learn how to identify patient selection criteria for both Ortho-K and Scleral lenses, develop a practice growth strategy, and troubleshoot common issues to ensure successful outcomes for patients.

The events, which will be held in Chicago (June 5), Boston (July 13), Southern California (Sept 20), and Houston (Nov 2), boast an exciting agenda that begins with a meet and greet and then segues into the dinner discussion, which features three presentations: Practice Implementation (Specialty Contact Lenses) led by Christie Yee, NCLEM; Case-Based Series: Troubleshooting Ortho-K, led by Jackson Lau, OD; and Scleral Lens Showcase: Streamlined Fitting with the NEW Europa Tangent, led by Lynette Johns, OD. The engaging and informative sessions are designed to help attendees elevate their knowledge of specialty lenses and apply this knowledge to effectively manage a range of vision conditions; to develop a practice growth strategy by applying best practices in scheduling, staffing, and marketing to optimize patient satisfaction and gain referrals; and to demonstrate proficiency in fitting specialty lenses and troubleshoot common issues to ensure successful outcomes for patients. “I am thrilled to help facilitate these interactive discussions that are dedicated to advancing the field of specialty lens fitting and will help provide the best possible care for our patients,” said Dr. Johns, director of clinical and scientific affairs, Visionary Optics.

The program culminates with an interactive question and answer session, giving attendees the opportunity to ask questions to the presenting experts whose combined knowledge of specialty lenses spans all corners of the sector. “We are very excited to offer these interactive dinner discussions, which will provide an ideal forum for eye care practitioners to learn how to successfully build a specialty lens practice,” said Dr. Lau, senior manager of professional relations, Euclid.
