There are also six endowed speakerships per year. These CME programs include the Arthur Light, MD, Memorial Lectureship in Ophthalmology, two John J. Skowron, MD Distinguished Visiting Professorships, the Richard Gieser, MD, World Service Lecture, the James E. McDonald, MD, Annual Alumni Day Lecture and the Mark J. Daily Lectureship in Retinal Disease.

The first Current Concepts in Eye Care for the Optometric Practitioner took place in November, 2009. This two-hour presentation by Loyola faculty focuses on clinically relevant information for the optometric practitioner covering several specialty areas, including ocular surface disease, glaucoma clinical trials, eyelid and orbit infection, and specialty contact lenses for corneal disease.
