Specially designed 8-week course features sessions about advancing US eye care, growing ECP practices, and improving the patient experience.

Ophthalmic lens technology leader HOYA Vision Care announced today its ‘Summer Learning Series‘ of free webinars for eye care professionals (ECP) and their practices. From June 7 through July 26, 2023, HOYA will host eight specially designed courses hosted by in-house product and training experts. ECPs can register today for individual or all the webinars.

Four sessions offer ABO credits to advance ECP attendees’ continuing education. HOYA’s Visionary Alliance™ members will earn 200 extra points for each webinar attended. Each will start at 6:00 p.m. CDT, and recordings will be available to all members who cannot attend live.

The Summer Learning Series was inspired by direct feedback from ECPs as part of a customer research study – staff education and training led the responses. “We are excited to continue offering independent, visionary ECPs ways to grow their skills and enhance their practices,” said Matt Pope, Sr. Director of Marketing at HOYA Vision Care. “These focused sessions will help our customers but also all ECPs around the country to learn about and address important challenges within our industry.”
