Post ASCRS 2024 Outliers InsightsAs the curtains closed on ASCRS 2024, we were filled with gratitude for the opportunity to connect with esteemed practices and industry leaders. Over the course of the event, we engaged in insightful discussions about the current state and future of ophthalmology and optometry, exploring innovative solutions to enhance patient care and practice efficiency.

Our journey at ASCRS was preceded by a noteworthy presence at The Outliers Ophthalmology Meeting, where we had the privilege of meeting with Refractive doctors and delving into the latest advancements in the field. These experiences reinforced our commitment to staying at the forefront of industry trends and innovations, empowering practices to thrive in an ever-evolving landscape.

Does your practice have a problem that you’re currently focused on solving in 2024?

During our time at The Outliers Meeting, attendees were encouraged to share insights and innovations through concise 3-minute pearl presentations. It was truly inspiring to witness Sophrona Referral Portal What is your pearl | Two people are shown with a light bulb in the middlepractices from across the world come together to address common challenges and share their solutions.

These presentations served as a powerful reminder of the creativity and resourcefulness within the Refractive community, as practices showcased their ingenuity in tackling various issues. From optimizing patient flow to improving the patient experience, each presentation offered valuable lessons and insights that resonated with attendees.
