On January 28, the Illinois College of Optometry held its Inaugural Ocular Surface Disease Congress. The goal of the program was to bring together passionate doctors, a distinguished panel of experts, and industry sponsors for an interactive meeting. A record number of participants attended this CE event.
The Congress focused entirely on one topic- ocular surface disease. Stimulating speakers offered novel approaches to diagnosis and treatment. Presenters included Laura Periman, MD, Scott Schachter, OD, Leslie O’Dell, OD, Casey Hogan, OD ‘97, Barry Eiden, OD, Jennifer Harthan, OD ‘06, Louise Sclafani, OD ‘89, John Conto, OD, and Parag Majmudar, MD. Unique to this program, a philanthropic component was included. ICO donated $5,000 to the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation (SSF).
