On behalf of the Officers, Trustees and Membership of the Tennessee Association of Optometric Physicians, we want to invite you to join us in our upcoming 118th Congress Exhibition Hall. TAOP’s CE coordinators have developed an outstanding education program for Optometric Physicians featuring nationally known lecturers who will be speaking on state of the art vision and eye medical care subject matter. In addition, the Tennessee Para Optometric Association has designed an excellent CE program for optometry staff which will also be offered at the Congress.

We anticipate more than 200 Optometric Physicians, 100 Paras, and more than 60 exhibiting companies to attend this year’s meeting.
