Ophthalmology Fall Conference 2023
The purpose of this symposium is to increase the education and knowledge of all aspects of vision care and research, with an emphasis in challenges in diagnosis and management in ophthalmology. This symposium will focus on areas of neuro-ophthalmology, uveitis and comprehensive ophthalmology. This educational activity is aimed at practicing ophthalmologists, subspecialty ophthalmologists, optometrists, ophthalmology residents and fellows, medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, vision scientists, engineers, photographers and technicians.
This educational activity is aimed at practicing ophthalmologists, subspecialty ophthalmologists, fellows, residents, optometrists, medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and vision scientists.
Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:
- Evaluate updates in subspecialty diagnosis and treatment, particularly in the realms of uveitis, neuro-ophthalmology, and corneal disease.
- Recognize time-sensitive diagnoses which would most benefit from subspecialty care, versus those that need immediate action, versus those that can be managed locally.
- Distinguish the now-potentially treatable pathology of previously untreatable disease (such as non-infectious immune mediated uveitis, potentially treatable with immunomodulatory therapy )
