SECO partners with American Society of Optometric Surgeons

The conference will feature show floor demonstrations of radiosurgical technology, Botox and YAG laser education

Seco

SECO International has partnered with the American Society of Optometric Surgeons (ASOS) to deliver demonstrations at the annual American conference in New Orleans next month (20–24 February).

Show floor demonstrations will be hands-on and include radiosurgical technology, Botox and YAG laser education.

The ASOS demonstrations will take place within the Optometry Marketplace and add to the education line up of over 250 sessions that will take place at the five-day event.

President of SECO International, Emilio Balius, said: “SECO is continually looking for opportunities to support the growth and education of ophthalmic professionals.”

“By collaborating with ASOS, SECO is able to provide a one-of-a-kind hands-on experience with advance practice procedures like radiosurgical technology, Botox and YAG laser training. These procedures give optometrists specific and practical resources to expand and build their practices,” he added.

SECO said that ASOS’s goals to ensure excellence in patient care is an ideal match with SECO’s aim to advance eyecare through educational opportunities.

President of ASOS, Richard Castillo, added: “As ASOS works to deliver on our mission of facilitating education and collaboration, we could not think of a better partner than SECO to achieve these goals.”
