Summer Conference

July 27 & 28, 2024

Our Summer Conference 2024 will be held in person at the Fawcett Center (2400 Olentangy River Road 43210). Parking is free.

We will offer 7 hours of education each day, along with tea and coffee in the morning and a boxed lunch in the afternoon. The cost will be $33 per hour.


ALL registration must be completed online, and registration will close at noon on Tuesday, July 23.

In an effort to be eco-friendly and streamline our attendance reporting processes, the College of Optometry is eliminating paper attendance sheets at all in-person Continuing Education events effective May 1, 2024. At in-person Continuing Education events, we will collect attendance via QR codes or individualized web links. Both options will be available when you check in.

Registration is now closed.

Income from the conference will be used to fund several college initiatives. Thank you for your support of our college! If you have any issues with registration, please email

Abstract: When you see a patient with a strabismus, it can be intimidating. This is especially true if the tropia is accompanied by amblyopia or a history of head injury or other neurological insult.

We will discuss how to manage ET, XT, vertical strabismus, and any accompanying amblyopia. We will also discuss when to call in help from your optometric specialty or surgical colleagues.
