Target Audience

The intended audience for the activity is ophthalmologists and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with ocular disorders.

Learning Objectives: General Sessions

Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Examine preferred techniques and technology in cataract surgery such as intraoperative aberrometry, IOL exchange and power calculations, the use of femtosecond laser, and capsulotomy devices.
  • Review complex cases and complications management in cataract surgery.
  • Summarize practice pearls in premium and toric IOL implantation and state-of-the-science cataract surgical techniques and the latest evidence-based recommendations.
  • Analyze the safety and efficacy of new or refined strategies for managing corneal health, including: evidence-based dosing regimens for anti-infective and anti-inflammatory drugs in cataract and refractive surgery and the rationale behind them, the latest advances in treating corneal disease, and the latest evidence on the treatment of dry eye and ocular allergy.
  • Discuss challenging and controversial cases pertaining to femtosecond cataract surgery and refractive IOLs.
  • Evaluate state-of-the-science astigmatism management as it relates to preoperative measurements, corneal conditions, use of toric IOLs, femtosecond nomograms, and enhancements.
  • Evaluate new evidence on corneal-based and lens-based refractive surgery, including diagnostic technology, ocular surface optimization, presbyopia, and patient selection.
  • Assess new evidence and applications in the medical and surgical management of retinal vascular disorders and diseases.
  • Review the latest techniques and technologies in glaucoma, including minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, trabeculectomy, tube shunts, astigmatic correction, and cataract surgery.
  • Examine how new practice management services and shared decision-making approaches, integrated into the daily office flow, can better serve patients.
