What are your threshold criteria for attending a meeting this year?

What are your threshold criteria for attending a meeting this year?

Major ophthalmology meetings are a great source of renewing friendships, catching up on the latest information and techniques, and seeing the new toys we all love to use. It is a big part of each year and critical for our professional organizations for all the same reasons, as well as paying the bills for all the work they do. I get it: Canceling a big meeting is, well, a big deal. I have never missed an American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting in 45 years. It has been like part of the landscape, as locked into my thinking as the changes of the seasons. So, I fully understand the forces that are pushing the decision to keep this meeting open even though the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, correctly in my opinion, canceled their meetings with equally strong reasons why they would want to keep those meetings going.
