Praise for Vision By Design

A game changer for my practice and my future
— John Pond
Vision By Design continues to be my favorite conference of the year. No other conference that I’ve attended fosters such camaraderie around a collective goal. Other specialty lens platforms can encourage competition and one-upping each other, but VBD and the AAOMC continues to create an environment of support and enthusiasm for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. You are not competing against your colleagues, but rather are trying to relieve a bigger piece of the world’s myopia burden together.
— Aaron Wolf, O.D.
If you are serious about Ortho-K and Myopia Control you need to attend this conference!
— Dmitriy Zike, OD
VBD provides top caliber education with an environment to collaborate with colleagues as passionate as I am about our profession and myopic management. I have learned just as much from the course instruction as I have from attendees that I have met here at VBD.
— Natalie Sukontasup
It’s just plain awesome
— Matt Wang
The friendliest, most inspiring meeting I attend. It provides plenty to think about and plenty of ideas to put into action.
— Dr. Steve Jacobs
You outdo the information and speakers every year. The information is up to date and I learn something new every year, this is a must attend meeting.
— Paul Sorg
If you’re looking to become less dependent on vision plans, then you should attend this event to get the information on starting ortho K services in your practice.
— Dr. Richard Rebuck
If you care more about your patient’s visual health than selling another pair of glasses or soft contacts, you belong at VBD!
— Dr. Alice Cusner
If you have decided to make an effort to slow down the increase in myopia, this is the conference you can’t miss
— Max Humphreys
In practice, there are three things that motivate us to succeed: desperation, inspiration, and purpose. Orthokeratology offers our office the avenue in which we fulfill our need for purpose. The Vision By Design meeting provides the unique setting for continued growth in this exciting specialty care; I strongly recommend attending.
— Nicholas Despotidis, O.D., FAAO, FCOVD
Easily the best conference I have been to in over 20 years! Not only for the valuable education, but also for the collegiality and general sense of purpose amongst those that choose to perform Ortho-K so passionately.
— Philip Berry, O.D.
Thanks for all your hard work! Best meeting I have been to in 18 years of practice!
— Jeffrey Martin, O.D.
If anyone thinks optometrists are boring they’ve never been to Vision by Design!
— Paul Levine, Vice President of the AAOMC
VBD was definitely a great meeting. Thanks to all that helped plan it. I feel like I learned a lot and will understand more as I review my notes. You are all on the cutting edge with Ortho-K.
— Lisa Davis O.D. FOAA
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! Thanks to all who contributed to Vision by Design!
— W Patrick Parks
I would have to say that it was the best OD meeting I’ve ever been to! (Life changing)
— Jing Han
At VBD, I didn’t just learn things that I didn’t know. I learned things that I didn’t even know that I didn’t know!
— Jeff Jeruss, O.D.
The knowledge that is obtained during the meetings is vast and very helpful especially for someone new in the Ortho-K and specialty hard lens game. However, meeting and be-friending doctors who have been doing OK for years is the greatest advantage for attending VBD.
— Dr. Theodore Sees
