Verification of Attendance

What does it mean to look at The Big Picture? It means stepping back from the day-to-day and thinking about the entire optometric profession and your place in it. It means taking a look at how your practice functions and searching for ways to make it better.  It means being the best informed, the best educated, and the best prepared to meet new challenges head on. It means being in Atlanta next February 24-28 for SECO 2016.


There is no better way to be at the forefront of the optometric profession than to attend SECO 2016. The program is filled with courses and speakers that you will only hear at SECO – many of them for the first time anywhere. From Special Sessions to Learning Labs to Team-Centered Learning, SECO 2016’s nearly 400 courses provide the best continuing education available for optometrists and optometric staff.


Optometry’s Marketplace at SECO™also has solutions to maximize your time, profits and practice. Discover the latest technologies and tools and meet face to face with leading industry representatives to explore where optometry is headed, what the latest solutions are and what really works. Extend your learning to the exhibit hall for free (plus earn some CE) with our Presentation Theater courses. Plus, exclusive show specials make this the perfect place to buy. Don't miss Thursday's Food Tasting Tour where you can browse the many SECO daily specials and exhibits while exploring free food and drink options along the way.


SECO’s famous social events have a new look this year. The Optometric Staff Party is the perfect chance to celebrate the critical role of opticians, paraoptometrics, ophthalmic techs, business managers and more in optometry. The NEXT Party is the place to be for the students, residents and new ODs who are the next generation of optometry, with an evening of fun, food, drinks and a DJ. We will all celebrate SECO’s last full day together with the SEE-U Saturday Party. This circus-themed evening has something for everyone, cotton candy, face painting, a Lip-Sync Battle for the ages, plus – live on stage – Collective Soul!
