This 15 hour COPE approved CE seminar will educate the Doctor of Optometry on how to treat and prevent systemic and ocular disease using new medications, dietary supplements and changes in lifestyle. Dr. Paul will cover new areas of nutritional medicine such as nootropics or “smart drugs” that can boost brain performance. In addition, we’ll dive deep into the latest technology in the diagnosis and management of retinal disease with an emphasis on age-related macular degeneration and inherited retinal disease (IRD).  Rounding out the seminar will be a comprehensive course on the contemporary medical management of glaucoma, and a roundtable on how to be a more profitable and happier optometric physician by working less.
