FIRST ACCREDITED CE BY OCI: Masterclass Knowledgefest 2015

Dear Members,


I am very proud to announce that OCI had its FIRST CE accredited session as Masterclass Knowledgefest 2015. The CE program was a great success and the enthusiasm with which all the OCI registered members were keen to get their CE credits stamp was also very encouraging.


It was a pleasure to see all the registered members displaying their OCI badges proudly and those who did not receive it were eager to get them and wear them as well.   The CE was quiet informative to both practitioners and students of optometry.
