CORE Announces Broadest Ever Scientific Program for AAO ‘23
The Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) has announced a multifaceted series of scientific presentations, lectures, and posters for the American Academy of Optometry (AAO) 2023 Annual Meeting, scheduled from October 11-14. The diverse lineup represents the breadth of the organization’s expertise and impact across the optometric world.
Among CORE’s offerings are sessions on tear film stability, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and dry eye, sustained drug delivery devices for the eye, presbyopia-correcting multifocal contact lens fitting, a new tool to assist orthokeratology fit success, and the impact of myopia control lenses on vision.
“Our work has evolved to consistently span a broad range of clinically relevant pharmaceuticals, devices, and practices, and we’re privileged to share some of our latest findings and insights during Academy ‘23. After thirty-five years—including the last six under the CORE brand—our industry collaborations continue to grow, with more innovation ahead,” said Lyndon Jones, PhD, DSc, FCOptom, FAAO, the director of CORE.
Six CORE scientists will be featured in eight different talks in New Orleans:
- AZR MD 001 Improved Tear Film Stability and Symptoms of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction in a 6-Month Study
- Sign and Symptom Improvement Rates Among MGD Patients Following 6 Months of Treatment with AZR MD 001
- Rapid Fire: Dry Eye in 2023
- Sustained Drug Delivery Devices for the Eye
- Task-Based Evaluations of Two Daily Disposable Soft Multifocal Lenses
- Investigation of Ease of Fit to a Different Daily Disposable Multifocal Soft Lens
- Subjective Vision Experience in Soft Myopia Control Contact Lenses by Age
- Software Guided Orthokeratology Fitting Success
The CORE rebrand was announced at Academy 2018 in Chicago, conceived to illustrate the organization’s substantial expansion from its early roots in contact lens clinical studies. In celebration of its six years under the new name, CORE plans to release several infographics that spotlight various projects, publications, education, people, and more in the coming weeks.
