    Annual Meeting 2012
    Comprehensive Ophthalmology

    The symposium on global ophthalmology from the 2012 Annual Meeting provides an overview of eye health in its evolving global context, with emphasis on communities lacking or developing medical and surgical eye care. The sessions tackle the delicate ethical, social, and practical issues involved when crossing borders and cultures to offer one's services abroad, as well as the the risks inherent in international medicine and how to minimize exposure to these risks.
