The 2014 Pediatric Ophthalmology Subspecialty Day will promote among practicing ophthalmologists and other eye care professionals a better understanding of the whole patient in order to enable better treatment outcomes in patients with 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 and of adults with strabismus.
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.
- Expand the strabismus surgeon's surgical armamentarium.
- Discuss various common pediatric anterior segment and corneal diseases and explore new developments in their diagnosis and treatment.
