Optometry’s Meeting® events to address busy lives of women

May 28, 2013

wov cucumberWomen of Vision will dedicate Thursday afternoon, June 27, at Optometry’s Meeting® to the art and science of aesthetic eye care. With an emphasis on well-being, the group will explore this topic with a continuing education course, an Afternoon Tea and Inspirational Speaker, and a networking event in San Diego.

Women of Vision is a professional organization devoted to creating opportunities to educate, mentor, and network among women optometrists. WOV is dedicated to helping them become proactive in defining themselves and to balance career, family and health for themselves and their patients.

Attendees may register for course #1055 “Women of Vision Present: Gracefully Embracing Life’s Shades of Grey” moderated by Louise Sclafani, O.D., with panelists Melanie Denton, O.D., Kimberly Reed, O.D., Christine Sindt, O.D., and Joan Kaestner, M.D. The course is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Join this dynamic panel as they discuss caring for patients seeking enhanced health and beauty. Topics include:

  • proper lid hygiene with the latest treatments and diagnostic tests for ocular surface disease due to dry eye and cosmetics
  • ocular health issues such as the indications, methods and co-management of blepharoplasty, neurotoxins and fillers
  • beauty enhancement techniques such as permanent make-up, eyelash augmentation with serums and extension, eye whitening, and contact lenses
  • hot topics in women’s health such as preventative care, proper diet, exercise, sleep, and enjoying life’s indulgences.

The Afternoon Tea and Inspirational Speaker are sponsored by Allergan and will focus on energy management from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Marriott Hotel Marina Ballroom D.

Certified trainer Marty Babbington from the Human Performance Institute will lead an interactive discussion at the tea about why managing energy, not time, plays a critical role in greater engagement and higher performance across all facets of life.

Joining the discussion will also be an OD panel featuring Glenda Secor, O.D., Jenny Smythe, O.D., Millicent Knight, O.D., and Margarette Recalde, O.D. RSVP for event #0175.

Immediately following the tea, Women of Vision will sponsor a networking event that includes demonstrations, discussions, and refreshments from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Marriott. This social time will allow attendees to discuss the day’s topics and participate in demonstrations of aesthetic eye procedures, Johnson & Johnson’s TruVu Skin Analysis, chair massage therapy, and enjoy some healthy indulgences and drinks.

RSVP for this event at www.wovonline.org/networking-event-registration. The first 100 pre-registered attendees will receive a special gift.

On Friday morning at 7 a.m., the Women of Vision will host a fun Zumba® workout in the Marriott Hotel Fitness Center. This is available to the first 15 who register for the class during the networking event.
