Eyes On Eyecare has unveiled Courses, its latest digital offering featuring 24/7 on-demand content of continuing education (CE) for optometrists (ODs).
Tell me more about what Courses is.
Courses offers 24/7/365 access to premier, continuing education courses designed exclusively for eyecare professionals (ECPs).
Featuring fresh content from world-renowned educators, today’s eyecare professionals can log into Courses on their own time to meet CE requirements and advance their professional development efficiently and conveniently on an intuitive and easy-to-use platform.
Why is this relevant to today’s optometrists?
Eyecare providers have specific yearly requirements to meet regarding CE.
By leveraging Courses, today’s ODs are able to meet industry CE requirements on their own time, without the potential extra costs for travel or losing revenue by having to leave their practice to attend an in-person event.
Additionally, the learning offered in Courses is provided by respected and renowned optometrists who are considered to be experts in their specific fields of interest.
How many CE credits can I earn from Courses?
At the time of launch, the Courses platform offers 4 unique courses that provide No-Fee COPE-accredited CE.
Five non-CE courses are also available for ODs to learn more about a specific topic and continue their professional development.
How long is each course?
Each course represents a bite-sized (approximately 1 hour each) learning opportunity designed to accommodate an ODs’s busy schedule without a large time commitment.
And the benefits?
Because the CE and professional development offerings are available 24/7/365, ODs can accomplish their CE goals throughout the year at their own pace that enables lifelong learning and facilitates optimal patient care.
Give me more details on the content.
Courses will be updated monthly with fresh content. ODs and ECPs should check in regularly to make the most of cutting-edge content on popular topics, including (but not limited to):
- Strategies to treat dry eye disease
- Myopia management
- Advances in glaucoma and retinal diseases
- Career advice
