Program Description: 

Continued research in ophthalmology has produced multiple new treatment options for a variety of ocular diseases.  New technology, including the fast growing field of ocular imaging, is being used to further understand eye anatomy and pathology.  Progress in the field of ocular surgery has introduced new techniques and technology. The Eye Institute has, as one of its missions, the goal of being at the forefront of research, clinical care and education.  Our goal is to educate the academic and community eye care providers, residents, researchers, and medical students on the best and newest clinical and surgical treatments, cutting edge research and important non-clinical topics available in the field.

At the conclusion of this activity, the attendee will be able to describe the pathophysiology of diseases in light of new information provided by new technology, discuss controversies on the use of new technology in ophthalmic patient care, and integrate information on ethics, electronic medical records, quality improvement and other non-clinical topics in the day-to-day of research and clinical care.
