In our 93rd Year of providing education, we pride ourselves on having an increasing number of total enrollment students in OEPF, participants include optometrists, vision therapists, students, and ophthalmologists, with a faculty, and other optometric professionals from all over the world.
2020 has been a year of many greats in an untested world for OEPF: great loss, great stress, and great lows, but also great firsts, with new highs and discoveries. It was a year when time seemed to collapse in on itself; when days were sometimes hard to tell apart; when weeks seemed to merge, when timelines seemed constantly to shift. Life would return to normal in a matter of weeks, we first thought. In the meantime, we, at OEPF, adapted to the new reality, turning living rooms into offices and bedrooms into classrooms and welcomed the global community into our virtual meetings.
Overall Covid-19 has shone a spotlight on multiple challenges, but also on great new opportunities.
