As of November 1, 2021 we were ALMOST back to normal at our seminars. If you are fully vaccinated, masks are optional. If you are not vaccinated, masks are required. As licensed professionals and people of integrity, we expect you will respect and abide by this policy.  Hopefully, we will be back to TOTALLY normal by the time we have our first seminar in February 2022.


Thank you  all for making 2021 Optical Seminars most successful year ever!


If any seminar is postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, your registration fees will be applied to a future date.
