Course Description

This two-day course is designed for physicians whose clinical practices include general ophthalmology, refractive surgery, pathologies of cornea, and lens. Using an interactive, case-based approach, the distinguished speakers will present a variety of vignettes and practice pearls to illustrate clinical dilemmas in the diagnosis and management of anterior segment diseases. The 2-day program will focus on refractive surgery including cataract and other lens-based refractive procedures, corneal refractive surgery and alternative refractive technologies, as well as disorders of the cornea and external disease.
The topics will include: cataract and refractive surgery pearls, presbyopia correction, collagen crosslinking, high-risk anterior segment surgery, management of severe ocular surface disease, and the medical and surgical techniques for management of various infectious and inflammatory conditions of the anterior segment. A case-based format will be used throughout the program to encourage a more interactive forum.
A wet lab will also be available for participants to gain hands-on exposure to femtosecond cataract surgery and lamellar corneal surgical techniques.
