San Diego, California – March 25, 2021 – Eyes On Eyecare, a digital publication that provides clinical and career education to the young generation of optometrists and ophthalmologists, is pleased to announce the inaugural Eyes On Glaucoma virtual event, taking place June 18-19, 2021. Led by program chair Justin Schweitzer, OD, FAAO, this event will focus on current research and implementation in practice and will offer eight free credit hours of COPE-approved continuing education (CE).
Eyes On Glaucoma 2021 will leverage Eyes On Eyecare’s proprietary virtual event technology and audience of 47,000 eyecare professionals to produce the largest glaucoma-specific virtual event in the industry. The show will feature three education tracks with A-list glaucoma experts, interviews with industry leaders, live chat and Q&A with speakers, $3,000 in prizes, and an interactive exhibit hall highlighting organizations advancing cutting-edge glaucoma treatments.
Eyes On Glaucoma 2021 is the latest Eyes On event in a series that includes Eyes On 2021 and Eyes On Dry Eye. These Eyes On virtual events have successfully educated thousands of eyecare professionals over the past year, including the 4,500+ optometrists who attended the Eyes On 2021 event this past November.
Today’s optometrists and ophthalmologists are actively exploring new diagnostics, treatments, and collaborative approaches to glaucoma management and Eyes On Glaucoma will enhance their ability to treat this common condition. In his capacity as program chair, Dr. Schweitzer is building a speaker roster of the most respected minds in glaucoma who can share the insights, perspectives, and resources needed to improve practice patterns and patient outcomes.
“I’m incredibly excited to collaborate with the Eyes On team and participate in this groundbreaking event,” says Dr. Schweitzer. “Glaucoma affects millions of people around the world, and unfortunately, it’s also a disease that is silent in nature. I look forward to building an excellent program that educates and equips today's doctors to improve their understanding of the latest glaucoma treatment options.”
"Dr. Schweitzer is one of the leading optometrists in the glaucoma space, and has been an incredible educator on the topic for many years,” says Brett Kestenbaum, CovalentCreative’s Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer. “Dr. Schweitzer is putting together a world-class program with some of the top speakers in glaucoma, and we're incredibly excited to partner with him to bring this educational event to the eyecare industry."
