The 2013 Pediatric Ophthalmology Subspecialty Day will promote among practicing ophthalmologists and other eye care professionals who care for children a better understanding of the whole child in order to promote better outcomes of treatments for pediatric eye disease and strabismus. It will provide participants with an understanding of newer developments in this field and an appreciation of the challenges and controversies that exist in the care of children.
The intended target audience for this program is pediatric ophthalmologists, comprehensive ophthalmologists, medical professionals, visual physiologists, and orthoptists who are involved in maintaining high-quality health care for the pediatric and strabismus populations.
The goals of this program are to:
- Provide attendees with a broad-based update on the diagnosis and management of pediatric ophthalmic diseases and strabismus.
- Provide insight into new therapeutic options for treatment of a variety of pediatric eye disorders.
This meeting will enable attendees to:
- Evaluate new disease entities, practices, technologies and treatment that may change current practice.
- Plan the surgical treatment of complex strabismus.
- Discuss ocular manifestations of various systemic diseases and explore new developments in their treatment
- Recognize that in our developing field, there is still no consensus on best practices for certain pediatric eye conditions. Attendees will be made aware of opposing viewpoints in management of these conditions.
- Assess challenging pediatric neuro-ophthalmology cases and discuss the latest diagnostic and treatment options.
