OptikConEd is making a comprehensive continuing education course on Blue Light available on the new OptikConEd.com platform at no cost for Canadian Opticians and Optometric Assistants.
This new course, entitled, “The Science of Blue Light | Unlocking the Impact on our Health“, is sponsored by an education grant from BluTech. The course covers the effect of blue light on digital eye strain, vision loss, sleep and migraine.
The Instructor is Valeri Manso, a respected and well known optical educator who often contributes to live and digital optical and optometric education events across North America.
The Blue Light course provides a deep dive on the topic, which has been of some controversy in the lay press of late. Opticians need to be fully aware of the topic in order to answer patient questions with credibility and authority.
As a result of taking this course, the student will be able to:
- Separate Fact from fiction when it comes to Blue Light impact
- Understand blue light and how it can impact long term vision, daily vision, and overall well being
- How to positively impact your patients using the newest lens technology.
- Understand how unprecedented and growing usage of digital devices is contributing to blue light exposure in patient’s eyes
The course is approved for a one-hour credit for opticians by NACOR (National Alliance of Canadian Optician Regulators), COO (College of Opticians of Ontario) and CCOA (Canadian Certified Optometric Assistants. The course is also approved by ABO (American Board of Opticianry) and NCLE (National Contact Lens Examiners).
Users can take the at their own pace and timetable facilitating learning at a relaxed in-home setting.
Upon completion of a course, the learner can take an online quiz to test their knowledge. The quiz is instantly graded and a certificate with the relevant accreditation seal is immediately generated. Click here to view the new OptikConEd.com CE website.
