OCCRS seeks to establish a home for optometric clinicians, researchers, and business owners in the field of refractive technologies.
CRANBURY, N.J., Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Optometry Times®, the leading resource of news and information for optometry professionals, is thrilled to announce its Strategic Alliance Partnership (SAP) with the Optometric Cornea, Cataract and Refractive Society (OCCRS).
"As an organization that provides unparalleled support and resources to the niche refractive eyecare community, OCCRS has become a cornerstone of the ophthalmic specialty," said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, parent company of Optometry Times®. "We look forward to the guidance that we will gain through this alliance with OCCRS as we continue to provide our readers with cutting-edge insights that impact patient care."
The SAP program partners leading medical associations with each other for national reach and visibility.
Organized in 2002 and chartered in 2004, the former Optometric Council on Refractive Technology, now OCCRS, allows doctors of optometry and vision care researchers to meet in an optometric educational venue to share information and ideas. The group encourages research on cornea, cataract, and refractive technology, hosts forums at which such research may be presented, develops and delivers educational programs on cornea, cataract, and refractive technology to the optometric profession. Throughout the year, OCCRS partners with a variety of eye-care organizations to offer virtual continuing education (CE) and plans to return to in person meetings in 2022.
OCCRS is a member-based, non-profit organization made up of primarily optometrists and ophthalmologists, but also welcomes residents, fellows, and students studying optometry, medicine, or osteopathy. Members often act as a resource for colleagues that may not be directly involved in surgical care, but whose patients seek such care. OCCRS supports collaborative care with surgeons for the benefit of patient care.
