The mission of the 2014 Refractive Surgery Subspecialty Day is to provide comprehensive ophthalmologists and refractive, cataract, and corneal surgeons with a multi-discipline discussion of the current and evolving techniques and technology in cornea and lens based refractive surgery. The sessions will highlight lens and corneal refractive surgery and experts will debate on both sides of controversial subjects. Free papers and e-posters will focus on new and controversial topics.
The intended audience for this program is comprehensive ophthalmologists; refractive, cataract and corneal surgeons; and allied health personnel who are performing or assisting in refractive surgery.
The goal of this program is to review comprehensively, the leading concepts, as well as, update on the evolving techniques and knowledge base of cornea and lens-based refractive surgery in 2014.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate the latest techniques and technologies in refractive surgery.
- Compare the pros and cons of various lens- and corneal-based modalities, including presbyopic and toric IOLs.
- Identify the current status and future of laser refractive lens surgery using femtosecond lasers.
- Describe the increasing importance that refractive surgery plays in the practice of every subspecialty in ophthalmology.
- Identify evolving surgical approaches for presbyopia.
