Course Description: 

Many comprehensive ophthalmologists are unable to recognize and properly diagnose a large number of corneal dystrophies as many dystrophies are rare and not seen frequently in a general practice.  This conference will allow participants a unique opportunity to exam live patients at the slit lamp in an effort to improve physician’s skills at identifying corneal dystrophies.  Didactic lectures and case presentations will reinforce best practice management strategies.                              

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

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