Peters, Dr. R.D. (Attended NCSOC - 1979)

Dr. R.D. Peters, a Neillsville optometrist, was among some 600 doctors of optometry from seven upper Midwest states who attended the North Central States Optometric Conference (NCSOC) in Minneapolis, January 26-28. He registered for the annual conference in order that he might obtain continuing education required for members of the health care profession.

Dr. Peters said he was offered over 70 courses, including subjects from nutrition, headache, vision problems of children as well as the elderly, contact lens, to in-depth courses in pathology and pharmacology.

Appearing on the program was Dr. Irwin M. Borish, professor in the School of Optometry at Indiana University and author of the optometric classic, “Clinical Refractions,” who presented a newly available procedure of examining for near vision – which is of interest to those having trouble reading or using bifocals.
