Description

The 64th Annual Postgraduate Symposium in Ophthalmology will address the need for comprehensive ophthalmologists to have a better knowledge base of ocular diseases and conditions that are affecting the aging population. We will have experts in all subspecialties, including pathology, glaucoma, cornea, anterior segment, retina, and oculoplastics that will speak on how to correctly diagnose and treat more complicated conditions. Topics may include developments in cross-linking for corneal disease, the early treatment and diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, new antiglaucoma medications and procedures to prevent blindness, and advancements in oculoplastic surgery. Having a panel of guest speakers in all subspecialties will allow the audience to ask questions and find resources most applicable to their aging patient population.
