I’ve had several delegates thanking the EYLOC for such an excellent and relevant lecture, slick and well presented. I have invited my optometrist contacts many times with offers of lectures, and this one has attracted the largest audience by far. I would have no hesitation in recommending this lecture to other LOCs.
