Program ID #19225
Provides state level education for Wisconsin ophthalmologists on many topics. The concept of target IOP is new and many practicing ophthalmologists are unfamiliar and untrained. Clinicians underdiagnose and undervalue condisiont that can lead to other neurophthalmic disorders which could be prevented or treated earlier. Clinicians uncommonly encounter complications during cataract surgery and require regular review and discussion of how to recognize and handle complications during surgery.
