June 8, 2024

This one-day live course is designed to provide practicing ophthalmologists a comprehensive day of updates and latest advances in the ophthalmology field. Didactic lectures and interactive Q&A session will discuss: rare and unusual cases which might otherwise not be seen; reports on results of current and new surgical procedures; technologies and treatment modalities which could be incorporated into practices; and comprehensive reviews of other ophthalmic topics germane to the everyday practice of ophthalmology.

Target Audience

This CME Conference is designed for primary care providers, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and specialists in Ophthalmology Practice seeking updates in practical knowledge relating to patient care.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognizing common pediatric neuro-ophthalmic conditions and how to identify errors in those diagnosis. Gain insight into the psychological and emotional aspects of illness and their impact on symptom expression.
  • Identify the physiological and psychological effects of stress on individual health and professional performance and emphasizing the importance of proactive stress management.
  • Development of resilience-building skills to enhance coping mechanisms and adaptability in the face of adversity and uncertainty.
  • Defining relevant outcome measures to assess the effectiveness and safety of astigmatism correction with LALs compared to standard lenses, including visual acuity, refractive error, astigmatism reduction, contrast sensitivity, and patient satisfaction.
  • Describe the principles of pediatric corneal transplantation, including donor tissue selection, graft sizing, and surgical techniques for suturing and wound closure. Identify common congenital and acquired ocular conditions that may require corneal transplantation in pediatric patients.
  • Analyze and interpret the differences in refractive outcomes between patients who underwent cataract surgery with intraoperative aberrometry guidance and those who underwent surgery with preoperative biometry and IOL calculations.
  • Analyze and interpret the reported success rates of probing and tubing for NLDO cases in adults, focusing on the proportion of cases that achieved resolution of symptoms and restored lacrimal drainage function without requiring additional surgical interventions.
  • Identify and differentiate between emerging nonsurgical and surgical treatment modalities for festoons, including their mechanisms of action, indications, contraindications, and potential benefits compared to traditional approaches.
  • Learners will assess the importance of thorough pre-operative evaluations in identifying patients at a higher risk of worse outcomes, including the role of comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus.
  • Identify the signs and symptoms of congenital cataracts.
  • Identify clinical features suggestive of congenital cataracts during routine pediatric eye examinations.
