IMI WHITE PAPER SESSION

Last November 2018 we hosted a very successful session at the American Academy of Optometry (AAO) in San Antonio, Texas, where we had the first preview of the long awaited white papers the IMI has been leading.

The session was attended by up to 400 people. The IMI brought together the following committee chairs, Professor Earl Smith (University of Houston), Professor Christine Wildsoet (UC Berkeley), Professor David Troilo (SUNY), Professor Ian Flitcroft (Mater Hospital, Dublin Institute of Technology), Professor James Wolffsohn (Aston University) and Dr Kate Gifford (Gerry & Johnson Optometrists, Queensland University of Technology); in a session that presented the key findings of the white papers and the implications for the eye care professions, followed by an in-depth panel discussion.
