At the end of October, Professional Opticians of Florida wrapped up another great event, Vision Preview 2017, at the Doubletree by Hilton Miami Airport & Convention Center. It was an outstanding event with education provided by some of the best instructors in the nation. Many attendees received all of the required continuing education for this biennium. With Caroline Miller and Dr. Katherine Latimore leading the course, POF presented the 32-hour Apprentice Contact Lens Certificate program. The course was a huge success with the help of volunteers Don Young, Wes Stuart, Atala Valdes and Juan Carlos Moreno.
If you are not already Board Certified, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to become a Florida Board Certified Optician by attending the 20-hour Contact Lens Fitting Course in Tampa, December 1-3, 2017 for Florida Board Certification or CE Credit. Register online here.
