Four International Eyecare Center optometrists attended the 56th Annual Heart of America Eye Care Congress on February 10-12, 2017. Dr. Mindy Blackford of Kirksville, Missouri; Dr. Austin Krohn of Quincy, Illinois; Dr. Timothy Leahy of Pittsfield, Illinois; and Dr. Kelly Sharpe of Kirksville and Memphis, Missouri attended the conference held at the Sheraton Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri.

“I attended lectures on how systemic diseases can present in the front of the eye, as well as a lecture on the best techniques for diagnosing and treating strabismus – wandering or crossed eyes,” said Dr. Kelly Sharpe. The doctors attended presentations on a range of topics including the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and how to utilize new technology.

According to Dr. Austin Krohn, “attending conferences helps keep us up to date on the latest advances in systemic and ocular health, in addition to overall vision.”
