What's New in the Rapid Diagnosis of Ocular Surface Diseases and How Appropriate Treatment Improves the Outcomes of Cataract Surgery.

Over the past several years, many new techniques and technologies have allowed comprehensive ophthalmologists and cornea specialists to do a better job recognizing and treating ocular surface problems. It is quite important to diagnose and treat these properly as they increase the risk of long-term cornea and external disease problems. Additionally, these conditions can adversely affect the results of cataract surgery, especially when premium IOLs are used.  We will review new ways to diagnose and manage many ocular surface disorders to maximize vision both before and after cataract surgery.

At the conclusion of this conference, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize common and unusual ocular surface diseases
  • Develop a strategy to best manage patients with a variety of ocular surface diseases
  • Explain the risks and benefits of different medical and surgical interventions designed to treat ocular surface diseases
