We will be traveling to San Francisco this week for the American Academy of Optometry (AAO) meeting. While I am out there I will be meeting Paul Michael Hawkins and Jerry Legerton (Paragon Vision Sciences) about future OAA/Paragon events. This will include the Specialty Meeting in San Diego, February 11-13, where the OAA will have a booth and workshop . While in San Francisco I hope to also touch base with John Hibbs of Bausch & Lomb about our combined efforts to promote Vision By Design 2011 April 29-May 01 in Orlando Florida. The AAO meeting will also offer me a chance to talk with our other vendor sponsors about the upcoming events for 2011 and beyond while also taking in the extensive education offered over the four day event.
