In[sta] Living Color

NEW YORK—When I was younger, I loved going through my print issues of NYLON, TeenVogue and Seventeen, clipping out color palettes, fonts and editorials that caught my eye to craft my inspiration boards. With the rise of digital (and two of those print publications no longer in existence), social media (especially Instagram) has provided me with an endless supply of colorful, aesthetically pleasing images to digitally collage.

SECO 2019 Moves Annual Optometry Conference to New Orleans

ATLANTA—SECO International announced that SECO, a leading annual conference providing the optometry industry educational opportunities since 1924, is set to take place Feb. 20 to 24, 2019, at the New Orleans Ernest Morial Convention Center. This move marks the first time SECO will be held outside of Atlanta since 1957, the organization said. SECO has viewed this move to New Orleans as an opportunity to recraft its offerings to ensure that the event is serving the needs of the optometry community. “A fresh new location has given us the impetus to reimagine the event strategy to ensure the show is providing the optometry community with the most up-to-date sessions that will highlight emerging protocols and provide them with business tips necessary for practice success,” said Emilio Balius, OD, president of SECO International, LLC.

Dr. Jen and Juice: Jennifer Tsai, OD, Serves the Perfect Shot of Optometry and Travel

MANHATTAN—On Instagram, Jennifer Tsai is known as @drjenandjuice— a fashion forward optometrist, with a love for travel and an eye for the perfect Instagram photo. Though her Instagram account—which has a whopping 49,000 followers—caters to a wide audience between the ages 18 and 45, it first started as a personal account in 2014 before she incorporated optometry earlier this year. “It was a way for me to share my passion outside of work and school,” Dr. Tsai told VMail Weekend. “It gained quite a following on its own, so I started to collaborate with hotels, restaurants, and travel agencies as a travel lifestyle influencer. I decided to combine optometry with my account around April 2018 of this year, to help advocate the field and health wellness.”
