Our three and a half day comprehensive meeting will focus on the latest advances, research, and  fitting techniques in all areas of corneal reshaping treatment.

Vision By Design will place a particular emphasis on hands-on workshops focused on myopia control and prevention. This years meeting will also have a special emphasis on specialty lens fitting, with a live wet lab, and additional lectures and workshops during the main sessions.

Four intense days learning from the brightest minds & research on specialty contact lenses for corneal reshaping therapy, myopia containment, and vision restoration for those with corneal compromise. Exciting stuff and feel fortunate to pick the brains of so many unconventional thinkers!

THANK YOU! Your group is empowering ODs to DO amazing things that will elevate our profession...
