“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

“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!”

"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."
