Originally presented live on October 9-10, 2015

Exciting advances in ophthalmology, particularly in the field of cataract surgery, have recently been introduced. Novel methodologies have improved refractive outcomes of cataract surgery and increased the safety of the procedure. The challenge of phacoemulsification with weak zonules and Dr. David Chang’s perspective on the future of cataract surgery will be presented. The latest developments in glaucoma micro-invasive surgery, contact lenses, neuro-ophthalmology, diabetic retinopathy, pediatric ophthalmology and in-office imaging will also be reviewed.
