The 2018 Retina Subspecialty Day aims to provide a comprehensive and focused medical and surgical retina update for the retina subspecialist, interested ophthalmologist and ophthalmologist in training. The meeting focuses on up-to-date, clinically and scientifically relevant retina topics presented by an international group of respected retina specialists. The major educational goals are to highlight new clinical, medical and surgical advances, investigative information and to transfer it to the participant so that it is useful in patient care. The meeting attains these goals by engaging the participant in didactic presentations, panel discussions, audience response polling and audience response question generation for moderated panels.
The intended target audience for this program is vitreoretinal specialists, members in fellowship training and general ophthalmologists who are engaged in the diagnosis and treatment of vitreoretinal diseases.
The goals of this program are to:
- Provide attendees with a comprehensive, state-of-the-art update on the diagnosis and management of vitreoretinal diseases.
- Provide insight into new and upcoming diagnostic and therapeutic options for the medical and surgical evaluation and treatment of a variety of disorders.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Present established and innovative approaches to the management of surgical and retinal vascular conditions.
- Identify imaging tests that are most helpful in the diagnosis and management of retinal conditions and discuss emerging developments in retinal imaging.
- Describe new vitreoretinal surgical techniques and instrumentation.
- Identify new developments in the understanding of hereditary retinal degenerations, retinal vascular disease, AMD, pediatric retinal diseases, and ocular oncology.
- Summarize current and new clinical trial data for retinal diseases such as AMD, diabetic retinopathy, hereditary retinal conditions, and retinal vein occlusion.
