Thank you for thinking of us in 2007. In fact, more than 39,000 of you thought of us during last year when you needed Continuing Education credits and that made for a record year at 20/20.

During 2007, 20/20 and the Opticianry Study Center delivered over 38,000 CE certificates for opticians needing ABO, NCLE or Ohio State credits for recertification. In addition, at our live events on behalf of HOYA and the Professional Opticians of Florida we added more than a thousand more.

Education is a critical part of 20/20 and we will endeavor to bring you more of the best CE during 2008. Look for the CE in the magazine every month, online at, by video as webinars or online and at live events where we can meet you personally.
