The mission of the 2014 Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Subspecialty Day is to provide attendees with a comprehensive, state-of-the-art update on treatments in oculofacial plastic surgery. The practice gap was identified by interviews with recognized thought leaders in the field of oculofacial plastic surgery, a review of data from peer-reviewed published literature and databases, and post-activity surveys from national oculofacial plastic surgery meetings.
The intended audience for this program is practicing oculofacial surgeons and comprehensive ophthalmologists with an interest in oculofacial surgery from around the world.
To provide attendees with a comprehensive update on improved patient care and outcomes.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify modern, evidence-based algorithms in oculofacial plastic surgery disease treatment and how to effectively apply them.
- Introduce the contemporary management of congenital eyelid and orbital disease, thyroid eye disease and orbital vascular lesions.
- Evaluate complex orbital and oculoplastics cases to understand treatment outcomes.
- Gain familiarity with the practice patterns of experienced oculofacial practitioners and understand differences in patient management around the world.
