38th Annual Midwinter Retina Symposium Cataracts & Retina: Collaborations & Complications

March 7, 2020

In this conference, we will focus on the comorbidities and complications that sometimes confound the high expectations shared by cataract patients and surgeons.  Common co-existing conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration may require coordination between surgeon and retina specialist to optimize outcomes.  Complications such as dropped nuclei, infection, and cystoid macular edema may also require shared management between providers. Our experts will present the science and share their experience for management of these complicated patients.


Target Audience

This educational activity is aimed at practicing ophthalmologists, subspecialty ophthalmologists, fellows, residents, optometrists, medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, vision scientists and retina photographers.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this activity, I will be able to:
  • Distinguish various conditions of the retina.
  • Differentiate retina conditions and how it influences cataract surgery.
  • Adapt best practices for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of complications of cataract surgery.
