The mission of the 2023 Refractive Surgery Subspecialty Day is to provide comprehensive ophthalmologists, refractive, cataract, and corneal surgeons, with a multidisciplinary discussion of the current and evolving techniques and technology in cornea- and lens-based refractive surgery. The sessions will highlight lens and corneal refractive surgery, and experts will share pearls for providing exemplary outcomes. A session with videos of challenging cases will provide an overview of the most advanced surgical procedures and techniques for handling challenging cases. A special session will be held by the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS), with the latest refractive surgery updates from the other side of the Atlantic. Look for the popular Journal of Refractive Surgery session, featuring the Troutman Award Lecture. Also look for keynote lectures covering the hottest topics on cataract and refractive surgery.
The intended audience for this program is comprehensive ophthalmologists; refractive, cataract, and corneal surgeons; and allied health personnel who are performing or assisting in refractive surgery.
The goals of this program are to:
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
Evaluate the latest techniques and technologies in refractive surgery
Identify the current status and future of femtosecond laser, excimer laser, phakic IOL, and IOL refractive surgery
Compare the pros and cons of various lens- and corneal-based modalities, including presbyopic and toric IOLs
Describe the increasing importance of refractive surgery in any ophthalmology practice and the reasons to consider this subspecialty to improve patient care
Practice complication avoidance, identification, and management in cornea- and lens-based surgery
