Two faculty members from the University of Pikeville-Kentucky College of Optometry—Josephine Owoeye O.D., MPH, and Xiaojing Yu, O.D., Ph.D.—were invited to lecture at the International Masters Class in Optometry Education Series and the International Forum of Young Scholars in Optometry. The event was held at the new Hongqiao International Medical Center in Shanghai, China. Yu and Owoeye lectured on the topics of visual development, management of refractive errors and abnormal binocular vision conditions as well as facilitated a four-hour clinical skills lab session. The courses were designed to provide vision care providers in China with a comprehensive foundation to further strengthen their delivery of pediatric eye care. Additionally, Yu and Owoeye provided eye examinations to children who traveled over three hours to seek their opinions and expertise.
