IDOC Forms New Partnership with United Eye Care Providers

Illinois-based IDOC members offered new opportunities for clinical CE

October 7, 2020, Norwalk, CTIDOC, a privately-held alliance of independent optometrists, today announced the launch of a new professional partnership with Illinois-based United Eye Care Providers (UECP), a leading alliance of private practice optometrists. Established in 1995, UECP provides support for over 50 independent practices in Illinois, including Continuing Education coursework throughout the year. Based on the new partnership, Illinois-based IDOC members are now eligible to receive UECP-hosted, COPE-approved CE free of charge.

“Our new relationship with United Eye Care Providers represents a big opportunity for IDOC members in Illinois,” said Dave Brown, IDOC President and CEO. “With an impressive track record of medical credentials, the Continuing Education they provide to private practitioners is second to none. We’re excited that qualified IDOC members can now be a part of it.”

Next month, UECP, in collaboration with IDOC, is hosting two Continuing Education sessions in a virtual online format, each focused on a condition frequently encountered by eye care professionals on the front lines of patient care. On Wednesday, November 18, Dr. Jeffry Gerson will discuss the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes-related issues, and on Thursday, November 19, Dr. April Jasper will present new findings on glaucoma screening and treatment protocols. UECP and IDOC will continue to offer Continuing Education classes each quarter to help doctors fulfill their IL license requirements.

“Given that a growing number of Americans are affected by diabetes, pre-diabetes and glaucoma, care for these patients is becoming an everyday issue in optometric practices,” said Dr. Rick Peterson, President of UECP. “We are committed to giving our private practice members the Continuing Education they need to offer their patients outstanding care, visually and medically, and we’re pleased that our coverage now includes IDOC members in Illinois.”
