The dispensing ophthalmology roundtables will be Saturday, March 24, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Crystal Palace of the Javits Center, E Hall, Concourse Level.

VEE attendees may participate in any one roundtable discussion. For a practice to maximize the experience, however, staff members-for example, a physician and a key dispensary staff member-should participate in separate roundtables. Every participant will receive the "Roundtable Companion Notebook," which summarizes all roundtable topics.

Roundtables:

Admission to the roundtables is free, but because space is limited, pre-registration is required. Register online at http://www.aado.net/ or call toll-free 800/705-AADO (2236).
