Join your colleagues for another outstanding program with tracks specifically designed for ophthalmologists, their medical personnel, practice managers and administrative staff. This year we are back in the spacious Conference Center at the Washington State Convention Center facility in downtown Seattle, WA. 

 

Registration Fees

The cost to participate in each program is based on whether participants are WAEPS physician members or employees of a WAEPS member practice. In order to take advantage of the significant member discounts, the member’s 2020 dues must be paid prior to registration. Some of the programs also have an early-bird registration discount. Check the individual program pages for details.
