About Course

The Wilmer Eye Institute s 32 nd Annual Current Concepts in Ophthalmology DESCRIPTION This Current Concepts course will highlight the recent developments regarding diagnosis as well as medical and surgical therapy of common eye diseases. The participant should get a comprehensive review of the most current concepts in the management of ophthalmology by experts across the breadth of the field. For example, clinical trials and other evidence in the peer-reviewed literature over the past few years have changed the approach to managing cataract, including; IOL technology and femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery; corneal disease, including dry eye disease, keratoplasty, and collagen cross linking; glaucoma and minimally invasive glaucoma surgical devices; as well as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and retinal vein occlusions. Furthermore, the role of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and other imaging advances are expanding the understanding of the anatomy of the anterior and posterior segment of the eye. This course will address the ongoing pattern of registrants with repeat requests for demonstrations of the latest surgical techniques and medical therapies, questions regarding practice management issues and clarification of legislative updates.
