IOP Congress

2015 IOP Annual Congress

The 2015 Congress is filling up fast, but a few opportunities still exist for doctors and paraoptometrics interested in joining us in Coeur d’Alene, September 24-26. A few spots for sponsorship and the exhibit hall are available as well. Join us at the Coeur d’Alene Convention Center. Fall colors and mild weather make this time of year in Northern Idaho a sight to behold!

We will provide 19 hours of COPE approved education for the doctors, 13 hours for the paraoptometrics with a mix of ABO, AOA & NCLE certified education and great Exhibit Hall that doesn’t compete with any of the scheduled classes.
