I haven't missed a SECO since 1994 and am always impressed by the exhibit hall and the awesome technology employed there.  Its also where I have met folks I now call friends and look forward to seeing them each year at SECO.

Focus on Your Future Career

For future optometrists, SECO 2017 is where you will experience the best education in optometry, network with your peers, working optometrists, potential employers and industry leaders, and enjoy some fun social events—all at no cost to you.


Current optometry students and residents are welcome to attend the optometrist continuing education program at SECO 2017 for free, including the Special Sessions and lunch at the OD Symposium Series courses on Thursday and Friday along with the Student Symposia on Saturday. Students can attend courses as long as space is available, except for Learning Labs, which are excluded. Residents can sign up for courses when you register.



The Student Symposium is a special course just for students with a free lunch, an opportunity to network with and hear presentations from industry leaders and interact with students from all over the country. Presentations will be geared to your interests, so be sure to sign up when you register.
