Virtual event helps ophthalmologists stay atop dynamic specialty while earning CME credits

Posted on

With ophthalmology and optometry among the most dynamic medical specialties, staying abreast of the constant innovation and change in the field is imperative. Providers will have the chance to do just that during Eyes On 2022, a virtual event with 7 hours of free CME and more than 70 speakers.

“CME courses provide a forum for continuing education that is fair and balanced, providing eye care practitioners with the latest and most important information necessary to stay cutting edge and providing their patients with the best possible care,” said Eric Donnenfeld, MD, a moderator and speaker at Eyes On 2022.

Dr John Berdahl, who is also a speaker at the event, agrees that the importance of CME cannot be overstated.

“We owe it to our patients to be more knowledgeable tomorrow than we are today,” he said. “CME is an important way to do just that”

The event includes a dedicated Ophthalmology Track featuring sessions ranging from clinical research to practice management.

“Eyes On 2022 will be a forum for all the exciting new changes taking place in our profession. The newest innovations in refractive cataract surgery, glaucoma, and retina will be discussed by world-class key opinion leaders,” said Dr Donnenfeld. “Expect to learn about all the new technologies and techniques to stay on top of your game.”

Eyes On 2022 will be held live, December 3-5, 2021.
