One of the giant leaps as stated by HODs of different optometry colleges was experienced on 25th and 26th March 2017 where 1500 optometrists had gathered for an academic and cultural event like never before.

One could never forget the way their years of experience were merged to a 20 min innovative talk.
Eyedia 2K17 covered hot topics which included Dispensing, Contact Lens, Vision Therapy, Community Optometry and Low Vision. The Optometrist who arrived in variant colors were given an opportunity to enhance their skills by interacting with these speakers in Interaction session.
One can never forget the sight of the 1000 square feet lab which was converted to massive Exhibition room. Although Low Vision team won the 1st prize, it was a breath taking moment for everyone who entered this room where the ideas and knowledge had come together.
A group of volunteers were attracting the crowd during the lunch break and encouraging them to play games. It was a brain relaxing session preparing for the next academic event – The most awaited Quiz competition. Different colleges had participated in this event and the final round was a nail biting moment. There were also several other academic games which was never seen or heard before and well planned and executed by the volunteers (Students of Al-Salama optometry college)

After the academic sessions, 20,000 watts of sound was heard for the cultural event which was started with a young- aspiring-talented and highly energetic celebrity Mr Jino John followed by many optometry stars who twinkled on that eve.
In the end, Al-Salama college of Optometry realized that this was just the beginning and when every college gathered together during the prize distribution ceremony there was only one sentence across the auditorium…..waiting for EYEDIA 2K18.
