Eye Institute Annual Symposium - The Aging Eye

Milwaukee, WI US
September 20, 2014

The prevalence of many eye diseases increases with age in virtually all populations.  Thus, as the population ages, the overall prevalence of eye disease will increase dramatically.  It is thus important that the ophthalmologist be aware of current research efforts towards developing new treatments, diagnostic challenges in differentiating normal age-related changes from pathological ones, and current best-practices in managing these eye diseases.

The aim of this program is to provide a comprehensive update on the understanding of the aging eye, placing an emphasis on diagnosis and management of age-related eye disease.

The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
