The 2nd World Congress of Optometry will be held in Hyderabad, India, Sept. 11-13, 2017. Focused on the theme of “Accessible, Quality Vison and Eye Health,” this year’s biennial congress offers optometrists, vision scientists, educators, researchers, students and other visual health professionals a wide-ranging program including lectures and workshops in a variety of areas such as ocular disease, binocular vision, glaucoma, low vision and contact lenses.

Courses offered at the congress will be organized around two principal tracks, a Scientific track and an Educators’ track, and will be COPE-approved. The Educators’ track includes lectures, workshops, symposia and poster presentations designed to maximize the opportunity to advance the optometric education agenda across the world and through that support the sustainable development of highly needed human resources.

The 2107 congress is a World Council of Optometry initiative in partnership with its members the Asia Pacific Council of Optometry and the India Vision Institute.
