Virginia Eye Consultants is proud to be a leader in clinical care, clinical research and clinical education. This past week, Drs. Koetting and Whitley represented us at the 2016 Optometry’s Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. Both presented several lectures at the meeting and Dr. Koetting was heavily involved with the paraoptometric program and presented several lectures including:
- Urgency vs. Emergency: Front Desk Triage
- I’ve Got What in My Eye: Ocular Manifestation of Common Systemic Diseases
- Understanding Visual Fields
- What Pupils Tell us About the Eye
Dr. Whitley presented several lectures throughout the week and had the opportunity to moderate a panel with Drs. Donald Korb, Caroline Blackie and Doug Devries — which was the highlight of his week. Dr. Korb is a pioneer when it comes to contact lenses and dry eye disease and Dr. Blackie has authored over 40 peer-reviewed journals on the topic of dry eye and Meibomian gland dysfunction. The course was packed and the interaction among the panel made it a fantastic learning experience for everyone.
