The mission of the 2013 Refractive Surgery Subspecialty Day is to provide comprehensive ophthalmologists and refractive, cataract, and corneal surgeons with a comprehensive discussion of the leading concepts in refractive surgery, including corneal and lens-based procedures, with an emphasis on laser-based lens surgery. The sessions on Friday will highlight lens and corneal refractive surgery, and the sessions on Saturday will expound on corneal refractive surgery. Break-out sessions 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 provide an update on the techniques and knowledge base of refractive surgery in 2013. The program will be a comprehensive review of the leading concepts in corneal and lens-based cataract and refractive surgery.
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.
