How to Continue Your ECP Education

We never stop learning and we can’t – there’s too much to do and see. Education is how we grow, whether that evokes ideas of a sterile classroom or an adventure, we are always learning in everything we do.


Continuing your education as an eye care professional is vital to staying up on the latest products, trends, and innovations to provide the best vision care for your patients. Not to mention, a certain number of hours are required each year.


Finding continuing education resources can sometimes feel like an uphill climb both ways in the snow. We at Hoya pride ourselves in the continuing education resources we’ve created to make your life easier as an ECP, and enable you to better care for your patients.
