This meeting is so unique along with great breakfast, lunch and workshop sessions. The meeting is casual and relaxed in beautiful settings that should not be missed!”

“The Hawaiian Eye meeting is my favorite educational conference by far. I attended my first meeting 20 years ago and have returned every year since. This conference has absolutely the best environment (casual dress, beautiful setting, relaxing atmosphere) combined with the most renown ophthalmic industry leaders in attendance. What a great place to network and pick up ideas!”

“The Hawaiian Eye Meeting provides attendees with educational credits for administrators, physicians, nurses and ophthalmic technicians in a relaxed setting, with innovative and current topics for all with a renowned faculty. Interactive sessions allow attendees to participate in discussions and get the answers to topics they need to enhance their expertise. What meeting offers outdoor sessions along with Hulu dancing classes? Only Hawaiian Eye!”

“It's the right size for being able to attend all the sessions; the informal (banyan tree) sessions are really fun and educational; the venue is small enough that I can talk one-on-one with experts in their field; and IT'S IN HAWAII!”

“As a professional working in the ophthalmic industry for 30+ years, I find the Hawaiian Eye meeting very enjoyable for a few reasons. The quality of the locations the meeting is held always offers a nice venue. The continuing education and exhibit hall are well planned with current topics to help keep eye care professionals to up with today’s industry technologies. The early morning education also allows for an afternoon of relaxation to visit with friends and colleagues. Of course, it is nice the meeting is in the winter months when we can all use a break from ‘Old Man Winter’.”

“What I especially like about the Hawaiian Eye Meeting is that it spends time on the business of ophthalmology as well as areas of academic interest. In addition, the banyan tree sessions are a great way to get to know the faculty over a glass of wine and make the meeting feel personal and intimate. I enjoy the fact that the Hawaiian Eye Meeting offers a top-notch faculty with high quality education in paradise. Why not work hard and play hard? This meeting seems to offer more every year! More subjects covered, more opportunities to interact with the faculty, more sponsors on the exhibit floor!”

“The Hawaiian Eye Meeting is a great meeting for learning about innovative techniques and technologies and interactive discussions in a beautiful, relaxed setting. It is a welcome change from the formality of some of the other larger meetings and provides opportunities for more one on one meetings with colleagues and industry partners.”

“The Hawaiian Eye Meeting offers a comprehensive overview of topics in ophthalmology. The speakers are consistently excellent. Besides lectures, there are workshops and small group sessions that allow question and answers with the faculty. The venue is in ‘paradise’ and changes island each year. This meeting offers the rare opportunity to learn and network in a beautiful and relaxed setting.”
