Scientific Program (Papers and Posters)

One of the distinguishing factors of the Academy’s annual meeting is the incorporation of Scientific Program papers and posters into the curriculum. Each year, over 100 papers and 400 posters are presented by scientists, educators and clinicians in an effort to share the latest research advances in optometry and vision science. Attendees can earn CE credits in 15 minute increments by attending the Scientific Program sessions (CE has been submitted directly to state boards for approval)*.

The 2017 Scientific Program Submission window is now closed.
