CEwire2016 will be held live online on January 16-17, 2016 from 11-7 EST, 8-4 PST both days, and all lectures and the exhibit hall will then be available on-demand to all U.S. and international registrants for an additional 90 days.

CEwire2016 features over 45 COPE-approved CE lecture hours on a wide variety of topics for ODs to fulfill their mandatory CE requirements.

All courses are newly developed for 2016, including one track devoted to ophthalmology, covering topics such as co-managing LASIK, cataracts and ocular plastics, as well as ocular manifestation of systemic disease. The conference also will feature a large virtual exhibit hall where attendees can view materials, access show discounts on products and services, and interact live with participating vendors.

Last year, over 1,500 eye care professionals from the U.S, Canada, and abroad attended CEwire2015 and tens of thousands of CE credit hours were awarded, according to conference co-organizer Paul Farkas, OD, FAAO.


“The cost and convenience factors of a virtual conference offer advantages for participants, as there are no travel costs and the technology is universally available, enabling registrants to fulfill their mandatory CE requirements at their own convenience,” he notes.

Registration by January 4, 2016 includes a special rate of $129 for individual practitioners and a group rate of $199, which covers two or more doctors in a practice as well as free attendance for their staff. Conference organizers note that this year, registration is free to all optometry students.

Profits from CEwire2016 will be distributed to the American Optometric Foundation and Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity/International. Last year’s conference raised over $20,000 for three separate charities related to optometry and eye care.
