The Eye Institute - 40th Anniversary Scientific Symposium

Milwaukee, WI US
October 1, 2016

Recent years have witnessed unprecedented expansion in the number of decisions eyecare providers face in clinical practice.   This is due to progress in both the diagnostic and therapeutic arenas. High impact clinical trials appear in the literature monthly. New diagnostic modalities, new drugs, and new surgeries appear in the literature, at meetings, and in the tabloids. 

It is difficult for practitioners to assimilate the data from the numerous sources, put them in context, and integrate them into their practices in an evidence-based context. Expert review of data and expert opinion can be very helpful in this effort.
