Attendees included optometrists, occupational therapists, low vision therapists, vision research scientists, orientation and mobility specialists, and other allied professionals serving BVI. The two-day conference featured clinical education
and research presentations that addressed topics covering a wide range of specialties, including optometry, occupational therapy, vision scientists, genetics, neurology and other areas:
- 36 speakers presenting in 22 clinical education and research sessions
- 12 exhibitors with the latest in assistive technology, optical devices and BVI services
In collaboration with the OSU College of Optometry, several of the faculty presented and even more importantly, there were 15 OD students attending representing the future of low vision rehabilitation.
Comments from the post-conference survey were positive: “The presentations were insightful and having OTs and ODs learning together was valuable. I’ve attended other conferences and Envision was more professional and helpful. I hope Envision keeps up the quality of the conference.”
Michael Epp, Manager of Professional Education, Envision University, is busy preparing for another all-virtual conference this fall on October 7-8.
