• 3 Ways to Watch Subspecialty Day and AAO 2018 Online


    There are 3 ways to watch the action online.

    1. Watch for daily videos. In 1 of today’s videos, Joan W. Miller, MD, talks about the art and science of developing new therapies for age-related macular degeneration, which was the topic of her 2018 Charles L. Schepens, MD, Lecture.

    And earlier in the day, as they paused between sessions, your colleagues shared why they are excited about AAO 2018.

    2. Buy AAO Meetings on Demand. Watch highlights from the 8 Subspecialty Day meetings, the AAOE program, and AAO 2018. Get 10% off when you make a purchase during AAO 2018.
