 Program Chair


Conference Description:  

This conference will focus on Cataract Surgeryas a constantly changing area of ophthalmology,needing new techniques and technologies as well as new uses for existing technologies. These techniques vary in relation to the diversity of clinical situations encountered in the day-to-day practice of ophthalmology.  For many physicians in community ophthalmic practice, the exposure to these new strategies is limited to journals and periodicals or “word-of-mouth " information from colleagues. Through this conference, participants will develop Best Practices by reviewing case presentations from the presenters and be able to discuss its complexities. 

At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize complex presentations involving both cataract and subspecialty issues where misdiagnosis leads directly to suboptimal clinical outcomes
  • Improve intraoperative management of complex cataract cases as well implementing/ Practicing the optimal management of complications occurring during more routine cataract cases
  • Improve their care of these complicated cataract patients by improving and optimizing the postoperative management, a process that can directly lead to improved surgical outcomes
