Orthoptics in ‘The Buff’ Planned June 6-8

The American Association of Certified Orthoptists, in collaboration with the Ross Eye Institute and the University at Buffalo Department of Ophthalmology, is hosting “Orthoptics in ‘The Buff,’” the AACO’s 2019 spring meeting.

This three-day event, scheduled for Thursday, June 6 through Saturday, June 8, will cover a wide range of orthoptics topics, including student presentations and discussions of the latest research and information in the field. Sessions will be held both at the Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo and the Millennium Buffalo hotel.

The special guest speaker at this year’s event is Alan B. Scott, MD, a founding member and former director of the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute. He has practiced adult and pediatric ophthalmology for more than five decades, and continues to work as a senior scientist with the Strabismus Research Foundation. During the June meeting, Dr. Scott will also be recognized with the 2019 Lucien Howe Medal, given for outstanding contributions to the field of ophthalmology.

Attendees at the spring meeting are also eligible for 15.75 hours of continuing education credit to count toward their ongoing educational requirements.
