Seeing is Believing 2013

Organisers of a conference targeted to the optometric market hope to attract eye care professionals from around the world by moving it online.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column]

Seeing is Believing 2013 will focus on optometrists using online tools to advance their practices, attract and retain patients, and reduce costs. These topics defy geographic boundaries and are important to optometrists worldwide. It will use an advanced virtual reality conferencing software to reach delegates from around the world.

“This (virtual conferencing) is happening in pockets throughout the optometric market, and we hope this conference really accelerates adoption of the use of technology as one important aspect of practice improvement,” said Dr. Gary Gerber, a member of the Seeing is Believing 2013 Planning Board, CEO of The Power Practice and a contributor to mivision.

“We believe the timing is right to move some portion of optometric conferencing online,” reported Dr. Alan Glazier, who developed the idea for the conference. “We are seeing huge numbers of optometrists online, on Facebook and other virtual environments because while there is a need for information and collaboration, travel away from the office is becoming economically more and more difficult for most practices.”
