Annual Meetings

Since 2007, The Vision Performance Institute has sponsored an annual research conference with participants representing vision sciences, ophthalmic products and electronics industries as well as optometric and ophthalmologic practitioners.

Recently, the conferences have been held on Pacific University's beautiful red-brick campus, with access to local vineyards and Pacific Northwest mountains and coastal scenery nearby, as well as Portland Metropolitan dining and entertainment.

Research from a variety of disciplines is presented at the annual conferences, and CE credit is available for practicing optometrists.

An outline of VPI Research Conference proceedings and presentations may be found below. With permission from the authors, some presentations may be available for viewing.
