He earned an O.D., M.S. (physiologic optics) simultaneously from UC Berkeley in 1981, a VA residency certificate in 1982, and a PhD. in human physiology and biophysics in 1996 from Chicago Medical School. He’s an associate professor of Family and Preventative Medicine at Chicago Medical School, assistant professor at the University of Illinois Department of Ophthalmology/Eye and Ear Infirmary and holds 2 additional faculty appointments in clinical optometry at ICO and UMSL. Actively involved in primary care optometry for 34 years and prevention for 20 years, Dr. Richer has special interests in aging, prescribing nutrients in the intervention of age related macular degeneration, lowtension glaucoma, cataracts and dry eye. AMD, AREDS II and Beyond- (Preventing Catastrophic Vision Loss & Improving Driving Vision) (2 hrs - COPE 39261-SD) The results of the AREDS 2 clinical trial were recently released. We review how to identify the ‘high risk patient” and explore the actual data within the JAMA publications and what it tells us about prevention of catastrophic vision loss in patients who have high risk of developing AMD. Next we explore what to tell the 90 % of patients who don’t have high risk AMD, yet are losing vision from mild and moderate AMD that effects their night driving and overall visual performance. We explore Level 2 science and new instrumentation that are enhancing and invigorating the practice of optometry. The Cornea and Nutrition (2 hrs - COPE 35022-AS) Part 1 Industrialized diets typically derive 70% of calories from only 4 staples: refined sugars, vegetables oils, grains and dairy. Unfortunately, these foods precipitate systemic surges in blood glucose, triglycerides, free radicals and inflammation while lacking counterbalancing micronutrients. In this course, we discuss how the modern clinician can use natural substances to reduce inflammatory cytokines and activation of NFkB Baseline dietary assessment, professional alignment with dieticians, prescription of broad based antioxidant/ mineral formulations, lab tests and prescription of specific nutrients for specific corneal conditions, are invaluable tools of the 21st century optometrist. Part 2 The epidemiological association of vitamin D/omega 3 fatty acids against arcus senilis is emphasized. Robert Vandervort, O.D. Dr. Robert Vandervort is the Director of Ocular Disease Services for Heartland Eye Consultants, an optometrically owned co-management center in Omaha, Nebraska. Dr. Vandervort is a graduate of Indiana University School of Optometry. He completed his residency in hospital-based optometry at the Lexington, Kentucky VA Medical Center.

New Technologies in Ocular Surface Disorders and How to Implement Them (2 hrs - COPE Pending) This course will provide an update on new instrumentation and diagnostic techniques that have become available in the diagnosis and management of ocular surface disorders. Advantages and difficulties in establishing management strategies from these tests will be presented in a case discussion format. Greg Caldwell, O.D., FAAO Greg Caldwell, O.D., is a 1995 graduate of the Pennsylvania College of Optometry.

Anterior and Posterior Case Presentations - Enough Pearls to Make a Necklace (2 hrs - COPE 44290-AS Pending) This course reviews common to complex anomalies of the anterior and posterior segment in case format. This course will include numerous pathologies pertinent to primary care optometric practice and provide clinicians with pearls, therapeutic options and guidance around pitfalls. Glaucoma - Enough Pearls to Make Another Necklace (1 hr - COPE 44289-GL Pending) An overview of glaucoma; risk factors (development and progression), disc hemorrhages and pallor, laminar dots, the impacts of pharmaceutical agents, target IOP, surgical updates and important goals of therapy will be discussed. The course will emphasize clinical pearls for the primary care optometric physician and will provide clinicians with guidance around pitfalls. Case presentations will be the chief format used during this course. 2015 NOA Spring Conference Ocular Manifestation and Treatment of Allergic Disorders (1 hr - COPE 34711-AS) Review of Vitreoretinal Surgery for the Optometrist (1 hr - Non COPE) An assortment of ocular allergic disorders manifest themselves through a variety of changes to the palbebral and bulbar conjunctivia. This course will review those varieties of presentations and discuss the lastest pharmaceutical options. When a specific immune response is not appropriately controlled, a phenomenon termed hypersensitivity ensues. This course will review Type 1-4 hypersensitivity and allow the clinician to apply during patient care. This course is meant to review and introduce the work-up of patients who will require medical/surgical vitreoretinal treatment for diseases such as retinal tears, retinal detachments, macular holes, epiretinal membranes, and vitreomacular traction. We will review important considerations when evaluating these patients for surgical evaluation, basic techniques of treatment, and new and upcoming technologies. Kyle Klute, O.D.

Update on Vitreo-Macular Traction and Indications for Surgery (1 hr - COPE 44178-PS) With the advent of OCT, our understanding of vitreomacular disorders has significantly improved. Now, with the 2012 FDA approval of Jetrea, new classifications of VMT and macular holes have been tailored towards more consistent management. Questions remain: When should we, as optometrists, refer for surgery? How effective is Jetrea? Joshua Priluck, M.D. Joshua Priluck M.D. is a retinal specialist from Omaha, Nebraska.
