The full program schedule is listed below (under the registration options). All courses will be submitted to COPE as well as the Florida and Texas Boards of Optometry for approval.

Please Note: The Early Riser lectures will take place in the main lecture hall on Saturday, Sunday and Monday to accommodate more attendees. As a result, access to the main lecture hall from 7:30-8:20 will be limited to attendees registered for the Early Riser CE so as not to disrupt the lectures.There will be tables for breakfast in both the upstairs and downstairs exhibit areas. The general session lectures will start at 8:40 a.m. each day.

Rates for Full Members of the National Glaucoma Society are $395 Early Bird and $450 regular. One-day rates for the morning lectures are $150 Early Bird and $165 regular ($135 and $150 for Full NGS Members). Separate fees apply for the Early Riser lectures from 7:30-8:20 each morning, Lunch & Learn and afternoon lectures on Saturday and Sunday, the Surgical Wet Lab on Saturday, and the Ocular Surface Disease Wet Lab on Sunday. After July 20, a $50 late fee will be added to all CE, if space is available. We cannot guarantee walk-in registration.  This conference has sold out in prior years.

There is a beach bonfire and marshmallow roast Saturday night on the Ocean Edge beach (weather permitting). This is open to all conference attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and their families free of charge. Reservations at Ocean Edge are not required for evening access to the beach.
