9 a.m. Front Wave Abberometry (Dual Approved)

Robert Wallner


10 a.m. Abbe Values and Dispersion (Ophthalmic Dispensing Approved)

Laura Frezza

Using the science of Light and Optics, we will define and discuss Abbe Value and its relationship to refractive index and color spectrum. We will provide techniques to assist in selecting the most appropriate lens material based on refractive error and its complexity, as an overview we will discuss ways to present different lens material to patients.


11 a.m. Frame Development Process (Ophthalmic Dispensing Approved)

Fred Capossela, Marchon Eyewear

This course explains how frames are designed, how all dimensions are considered and why frames are a costly commodity when manufactured properly. Although this course was developed for Marchon Eyewear, attendees will be taught critical points to making wise decisions in frame selection for the consumer. The success of the prescription and resultant Rx is inextricably connected to the best possible fit, including each dimension explained.


Noon to 12:30 break with sponsors


12:30 p.m. GEN 8 Transition Lenses (Ophthalmic Dispensing Approved)

Rachel Hettler

The new Transitions® Signature® GEN 8 lens technology incorporates a fully reinvented system, including a reinvented matrix and new photochromic dyes. This technology allows a new frontier of performance and a new opportunity for eyecare professionals to meet patient needs.


1:30 p.m. Diagnosis, Diseases and Remedies – Dual Approved

Robert Wallner and Laura Frezza

This segment will provide an overview in the ocular pathologies that are often diagnosed without remedy. We will give an overview of these conditions, how they are diagnosed, and the choices that we can provide to patients. What will be interesting is to see how far the technology has come to diagnose and offer better remedies.



It is only through the generous support of our Visionary Sponsors, Europa Eyewear and Cherry Optical Labs, Inc., that this live event can take place, along with the support of Essilor, Marchon Eyewear (speaker) and Mitsui Chemical (speaker).
