COPE-Accredited CE Programs

Asynchronous Low Vision, High Impact 2022

This series will cover the application and prescription of low vision devices and technology. The goal is to provide low vision rehabilitation strategies that can be accessible to primary care optometrists as well as low vision specialists. The course will include an in-depth discussion and evaluation of the types of low vision devices and technology available to patients with all levels of vision impairment, as well as descriptions of the strengths and weaknesses of each type of assistive technology. Each course provides 1 hour of COPE CE.

Please note, that this series is still ongoing. To learn more about the upcoming webinars, please visit the current programming page. We’ve created asynchronous versions of the first two lectures for your convenience below: 

After the presentation and following discussion, the attendee will be able to:

  1. The ability to understand the many members of a multidisciplinary low-vision team.
  2. Understanding the examination techniques, tests, and strategies that measure visual impairment and functional vision.
  3. Understanding low vision devices, rehabilitation strategies, and assistive technology available on both local and global levels.

After the presentation and following discussion, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Define the members of the multidisciplinary team involved in low vision rehabilitation care including mobility, occupational therapy, and others
  2. Understand which cases necessitate the integration of members of the multidisciplinary team
  3. Understand the principles of billing and coding and how they apply to low vision case management

Asynchronous Myopia Management Series

The courses in this series provide an explanation of the mechanisms of the optical treatments available to manage myopia, including highlights of the studies’ clinical relevance and clinical scenarios of patients treated at our myopia control clinic. Each course provides 2 hours of COPE CE.

After the presentation and following discussion, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Apply the current scientific knowledge on myopia etiology, development, progression, and risk
    factors to their clinical practice.
  2. Apply the current evidence on myopia prevention and control options to their clinical
    practice.
  3. Practice evidence-based clinical care when managing myopia.

After the presentation and following discussion, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Apply the current scientific research evidence on spectacle lenses to treat myopia to their clinical practice.
  2. Apply the current scientific research evidence on multifocal contact lens designs to treat myopia to their clinical practice.
  3. Apply new knowledge and strategies of fitting spectacle lenses and multifocal contact lens options to their myopia management practice.

After the presentation and following discussion, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Apply the current scientific research evidence on orthokeratology treatment for myopia control to their clinical practice.
  2. Apply the current scientific research evidence on orthokeratology lenses designs for myopia control in children to their clinical practice.
  3. Apply the current scientific research evidence on atropine eye drops, including dosage, regime, and discontinuation to their clinical practice.

After the presentation and following discussion, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Apply clinical protocols to implement myopia management into their specific practice modality.
  2. Apply practice management strategies such as billing, staff education, and marketing to their myopia management practice.
  3. Apply practical tips on implementing a myopia management practice from various modalities (ex. hospital, community health center, academic).

After the presentation and following discussion, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Apply the current scientific knowledge on myopia etiology, development, progression, and risk
    factors to their clinical practice.
  2. Apply the current evidence on myopia prevention and control options to their clinical
    practice.
  3. Practice evidence-based clinical care when managing myopia.

Infection Control for Optometrists

This course covers scientifically accepted principles and practices of infection control. This course provides 1.5 hours of COPE CE.

After the presentation and following discussion, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Apply modes and mechanisms of transmission of pathogenic organisms in the healthcare setting and strategies for prevention and control to their clinical practice.
  2. Use engineering and work practice controls to reduce the opportunity for patient and healthcare worker exposure to contact with potentially infectious material in all healthcare settings for bloodborne pathogens
  3. Apply knowledge of selection and use of barriers and/or personal protective equipment for preventing patient and healthcare worker contact with potentially infectious material to their clinical practice.
