Sports Vision University CE available at upcoming state meetings

May 10, 2012

Don’t miss out on the Sports Vision University program where the emphasis is on managing the visual performance needs of athletic patients.

Optometrists, students of optometry, residents, opticians, paraoptometrics and athletic coaches and trainers are encouraged to attend.

“There is a huge market of athletes who have visual needs that could be addressed with sports vision services,” said Steven Hitzeman, O.D., one of the speakers. “These services include protection, correction, contact lenses, altering the visible light transmission to increase contrast of visual stimuli, and enhancing the visual skills that are important for that sport. There is a need for these services, no matter the level of the athlete – professional, college, high school, club sport or recreational activities.”

The upcoming state affiliates hosting this continuing education program are:
