Texas State Optical Hosts Inaugural Symposia to Strengthen the Practice of Ocular Medicine

Posted on: 31 Aug 16

DALLAS, Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas State Optical (TSO), a leader in the eye care industry, is proud to announce its first-ever inaugural conference, Symposia, a national conference that aims to strengthen the practice of ocular medicine. The one-day, six-hour event is being hosted at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas on Saturday, October 22, 2016.

Through unique, rapid-fire sessions, attendees will learn how to improve diagnosis, treatment skills and patient communication to enhance the overall patient experience and build medical practice referrals. The conference is open to all doctors of Optometry and is approved by The Council on Optometric Practitioner Education.

"Staying educated and on top of industry trends and topics in the eye care industry is essential to providing patients with the best care possible," said John Marvin, president, TSO. "I'm thrilled that we've lined up some of the industry's premier professionals as conference speakers to not only share their expertise, but also lead thought-provoking conversations. It's my hope that Symposia becomes a must-attend event for optometrists throughout the nation."

Using smartphones, attendees will be able to digitally interact with Symposia speakers, being able to provide feedback and ask questions during courses. Another unique quality about the conference is that it's been condensed to one day, versus a typical two day event, maximizing the day's courses while being sensitive to attendee's busy schedules.

Acclaimed international speaker, educator, author and management consultant, Dr. Scot Morris, will serve as Symposia's Clinical Conference Director. Morris is also the Chief Optometric Editor for Optometric Management. Dr. Jill Autry, Partner of Eye Center of Texas, and Dr. Marc Bloomenstein, Center Director at Schwartz Laser Center will serve as Symposia's Conference Faculty.

To provide for a productive and intimate learning experience, attendance will be limited to 100 seats. Early registration is $499. After September 15, the registration fee is $799.
