I've told everyone about this meeting and am beyond excited to come back next year! This is an amazing group of professionals who I truly believe can change the world of eye care together! I've had a great time getting to know everyone on the team and cannot wait to do it again next year!

Post-Event Survey


100% adding MOD Live to the list of meetings I plan to attend every year. Heading home with more new medical eyecare pearls than I can fit in a carry-on! Beautiful setting, a great mix of OD & MD presenters, and a perfect meeting size for making new connections. Thank you @modoptometty!



Incredible weekend of education and connections at #MODLive2023 and inspired more than ever by my colleagues. Love this conference, and am looking forward to next year.



Easily one of the best ophthalmic events of the year. Not only was the attendee list rich with thought leaders and new young minds, access and interaction with them was fantastic. Our organization will prioritize attendance at this event in 2024.

John Steenbakkers, Head of US Sales, Trukera Medical


Best meeting I have attended in a long time. The panel format and discussion was insightful and robust. The expertise of the presenters was clear and the variety of case presentations was unmatched in comparison to other meetings.
