The Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) has expanded the number of presentations scheduled for the American Academy of Optometry 2023 annual meeting in New Orleans. The meeting runs from October 11-14 and the venue is the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
CORE has put together what is described as a multifaceted series of scientific presentations, lectures, and posters that “represents the breadth of the organization’s expertise and impact across the optometric world, which has accelerated during the past several years.”
The presentations will focus on tear film stability, meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eye, sustained drug delivery devices for the eye, presbyopia-correcting multifocal contact lens fitting, a new tool to assist orthokeratology fit success, and the impact of myopia control lenses on vision, according to a press release from CORE.
Lyndon Jones, PhD, DSc, FCOptom, FAAO, director of CORE, stated, “Our work has evolved to consistently span a broad range of clinically relevant pharmaceuticals, devices, and practices, and we’re privileged to share some of our latest findings and insights during Academy ‘23. After 35 years—including the last six under the CORE brand—our industry collaborations continue to grow, with more innovation ahead.”
