Introduction to Cornea and Lens-Based Refractive Surgery for Residents

AAO 2013

Residents, Check out this session at the AAO Annual Meeting in New Orleans:

SYM02 Introduction to Cornea and Lens-Based Refractive Surgery for Residents

This session will provide an overview of the most relevant topics on corneal and lens-based refractive surgery, including patient evaluation, topographic evaluation, a step-by-step surgical explanation of LASIK and surface ablation procedures, discussion of surgical complication recognition and management, and decision trees for choosing appropriate premium IOL candidates and managing complications unique to these individuals.

This will provide a basis upon which these individuals in training may begin to grow their knowledge base and gain comfort in practicing independently after graduation. The session will be an interactive didactic led by recognized experts and international leaders in the field of refractive surgery, but will be specifically directed at the resident education level, as opposed to many of the courses at AAO directed towards specialists already in practice. This focus should allow the resident to gain the optimal learning experience.
