AESC - 63rd Annual Meeting
Now in 2021!

The Omni Homestead - Hot Springs, VA


Updated 4/5/2021

We are very pleased to announce the dates for the 63rd Annual Meeting of the American Eye Study Club The Omni Homestead Resort -- August 1 - 6, 2021.  

As you know, because of the coronavirus pandemic, the July 2020 meeting became impossible.  We were able to move the previously scheduled 2021 annual meeting at the Salishan Resort in Oregon to 2022, making way for the 63rd annual meeting in 2021.  We basically hit the "pause button" last year.  

Planning is well underway, and the hotel reservations system is now available.  With the increasing distribution of Covid vaccinations, we are optimistic about the prospects for a successful, safe and fun meeting this summer!
