Schedule of Upcoming Webinars
Live Surgical Demonstration: Divide and Conquer Cataract Techniques
During this live surgical demonstration, Dr. Lehmann will perform two cataract surgeries with brief lectures in between the cases. Questions received from registration and during the webinar will also be discussed live.
The Clinical Examination & Management of Inherited Retinal Diseases
During this live webinar, Dr. Ballios will discuss the transformations that are taking place in ophthalmology in both the diagnosis and treatment of inherited retinal diseases. It is critical that all ophthalmologists around the world understand the basic science and emerging clinical technologies that are providing hope to patients and families where previously no options were available. Questions received from registration and during the webinar will also be discussed live.
During this live webinar we will discuss allergic eye disease and discuss specifically the more severe form called vernal keratoconjunctivitis. We will discuss the different types of vernal keratoconjunctivitis and we will discuss the complications of this disease including the complications of treatment. We will also discuss different treatment options and how the quality of life for these patients can be affected adversely if appropriate treatment is not given.
Management of Angle Closure
During this live webinar, we will discuss the classification and management of patients with angle closure. Questions received from registration and during the webinar will also be discussed.
Prescribing for Children: The Pitfalls and Tricks to Keep Kids in Glasses
During this live webinar, we will be discussing how to dispense and adjust prescriptions for a range of typical presentations in kids, including anisometropia, high previously uncorrected refractive error, adds for binocular vision issues, and kids with special needs.
Masses and Bumps of the Eyelids: Practical Approaches to Diagnosis and Management
During this live webinar, we will discuss the differential diagnosis of common and uncommon degenerative, inflammatory, developmental, and neoplastic masses and bumps with application of dermatologic concepts, pattern recognition, and an emphasis on the use of cytologic pathology. If time permits, we will also discuss treatment strategies, and reconstruction after excision of larger masses.
The Latest Technologies & Techniques for Posterior Segment Visualization of Surgeries
Dr. Manish Nagpal
During this live webinar, Dr. Kakarla Chalam and Dr. Manish Nagpal will discuss techniques and technologies that are used to maximize the surgeon’s view of the posterior segment during retinal surgeries. Dr. Chalam will cover the fundamental concepts of viewing during retinal surgery, the pros and cons of contact versus non-contact systems, the proper setup of operating room, and overall staff orientation. Dr. Nagpal will cover achieving good visualization with contact systems, wide field viewing, high magnification macular viewing for different indications, and tips on achieving good viewing via small pupils. Questions received during registration and during the webinar will be discussed.
The Therapeutic Pipeline for Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Macular Edema
Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) antibodies have been the pillar of therapy for patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic macular edema (DME) for nearly two decades. Unfortunately, anti-VEGF therapy requires frequent, repeated intravitreal injections that pose significant burdens for patients, their caregivers, and the healthcare system. Additionally, anti-VEGF therapy is completely ineffective for patient with atrophic age-related macular degeneration. Angiopoietin (Ang) pathways have recently shown the potential to provide a new treatment target that can reduce inflammation in neovascular AMD and DME. Likewise, the cleavage of complement protein C5 is being targeted for treatment options in geographic atrophy. In this session, we will focus on current and emerging therapies for AMD and DME.
Maximizing Visualization and Outcomes for Anterior Segment Procedures
During this live webinar, we will discuss approaches, techniques, and technologies that help to improve outcomes in anterior segment surgeries and procedures. We will cover lens options for anterior segment YAG lasers such as SLT, capsulotomy, and iridotomy. We will then transition to the operating room to explore ways to improve intraoperative visualization including heads up digital microscope markers, maximizing the red reflex, and viewing the angle with different gonioprisms for MIGS.
