Other Events

NACBO 2021

The dates for NACBO 2021 will be confirmed in early February following the ACBO Board online meeting, and are tentatively scheduled for 8-9 July at the QT hotel on the Gold Coast.

ICBO

In the US it is currently predicted it will take two years to control the virus issue. This has had a huge impact on the North American events industry, and the demand for social distancing and self-isolation has meant bringing large groups of people together is not viable now or in the foreseeable future.

As a result the OEPF Board and the International Conference of Behavioural Optometry (ICBO)  host organisation for the next ICBO, Vision Therapy Canada (VTC), have jointly decided to postpone ICBO 2022 in Ottawa Canada.

Syntonics Education

The Australian College of Syntonics (ACS) has been working hard to help advance the knowledge of Syntonics and research to support its efficacy as a viable tool for optometrists to use in their practice. ACS has released its education schedule for 2021, for more information and the events please click here.
