PECAA is pleased to announce its next education event: CE Potpourri 2022: Dynamic Speakers On Compelling Ocular Topics. Taking place on Sunday, December 11th, this event provides up to six (6) hours of COPE-approved clinical continuing education to optometrists across the country and will be presented in an interactive online Zoom webinar format. COPE rules for the remainder of 2022 allow interactive virtual webinars to count as online clinical education, with no testing requirement.
Each PECAA education event provides impactful instruction on a targeted area relevant to contemporary eye care practice. The December 11th event combines some of the top compelling ocular topics in our industry this year. Attendees will expand their knowledge of new treatments for cancer and their impact on the eyes, the links between dry eye disease and rosacea, and how to identify different groups of patients as contact lens wearers. In addition, attendees will enhance their clinical skills in identifying and diagnosing various types of neuro-ophthalmic disease as well as treatment and continuous care for patients who have experienced traumatic brain injury (TBI).
CE Potpourri 2022: Dynamic Speakers On Compelling Ocular Topics is open to all optometrists nationwide, including PECAA members and non-members alike, and we look forward to welcoming you to this event.

Description: This course will provide an overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiology and clinical signs and symptoms of ocular rosacea. It will highlight the role of immune dysregulation, genetic and environmental factors in ocular rosacea. Key tips will be provided on how to manage and treat this condition effectively in patients with dry eye disease. Finally, we will discuss future perspectives on ocular rosacea and novel treatment options that are being investigated for recalcitrant cases.

4:40 – 5:30 PM — Top 5 Clinical Tips For A Successful Contact Lens Practice
Speaker: Jennifer Stewart, OD

Description: Almost every patient in our practice is a potential contact lens wearer, and today’s lens choices give us the flexibility to successfully fit these patients and optimize visual clarity, comfort and health. Astigmatic and presbyopic patients are an underrepresented demographic in our contact lens practices and are great candidates for new technologies. Athletes and patients with dry eye will also benefit from open communication, listening and utilizing different materials and designs.
