For Professionals

UEC Referral Service
Our specialty services supplement, but do not replace the excellent care provided by the optometrists, physicians and other health care professionals who refer their patients to us.

We are committed to building trust and positive relationships with our referring professionals and their patients. To ensure a smooth working relationship, we promise to:

  • Answer your calls promptly
  • Schedule your patients as soon as possible
  • Keep you informed and involved in your patients’ care
  • Communicate with you in an appropriate and timely fashion
  • Act as a professional resource you can call upon as needed

Continuing Education
The SUNY College of Optometry, Office of Continuing Professional Education offers a variety of courses throughout the year to practitioners to expand their knowledge and skills to better serve their patients. Continuing education courses range in subject matter, location and structure. They range from full-day symposia on specific topics to extended in-depth presentations and workshops given over a series of weeks.

SUNY is a participating member of the Council of Optometric Practitioner Education (COPE) and submits all continuing education to COPE for course approval. If you have a specific question regarding continuing education approval in your state, please contact our office or visit the SUNY College of Optometry website.
