Last fall, 63 partners in practice representing 44 organizations in the eye care industry gathered at the New England College of Optometry to share expertise and discuss the evolving nature of eye care and the implications for how optometric education must adapt.
At the NECO Center for Eye Care’s Low Vision Clinic at Perkins School for the Blind, NECO’s Barry Kran OD, FAAO, is testing the acuity of a 15-year-old boy. This is not a traditional exam: The boy is deafblind (meaning some level of vision impairment and some level of hearing impairment), has cerebral palsy, cognitive challenges, and limited ability to communicate.
The NECO women featured here are among the many innovators in our community. We applaud the continued contributions to the field from the NECO faculty and researchers who are influencing the next generation of optometrists and the field of optometry.
