The New York State low vision specialist is going on-line for everyone to be kept aware of their status in the process. We are trying to reduce errors and keep everyone up to date in their CE requirements. Those requirements are;

5 hours of CE directly related to low vision. Continuing education on specific diseases is not allowed i.e. new treatments on age related macular degenration. Each CE period is the same for each doctor to avoid confusion. Each period goes from Jan 1-st of an even year and ends on the last day of an odd year. For example, 1/1/12 to 12/31/13. As the list was in confusion and so many doctors did not fulfill their requirement for 1/1/10 to 12/31/11, we extended the previous period until Oct 2012. This does not complete the requirement for the present period.

Your choices for CE are:
 
1. Vision Expo East- 3/16/13 4 hrs CE Dr Lynn Noon and Richard Soden
2. Saratoga Springs- 4/20/13 2nd draft brochure attached
3. Minneapolis, MN Envision Conference 9/19-21/13
4. SUNY Envision  10/19-21/13
5. Seattle- AAO 10/23-26/13
6. Vision Expo West 10/2-5/13 no information available at this time
 
There will be more to come.
