Ophthalmology Annual Fall Symposium: "The Aging Eye"

09-20-20147:45 AM  - 3:00 PM

The prevalence of many eye diseases increases with age in virtually all populations. Thus, as the population ages, the overall prevalence of eye disease will increase dramatically.  It is thus important that the ophthalmologist be aware of current research efforts towards developing new treatments, diagnostic challenges in differentiating normal age-related changes from pathological ones, and current best-practices in managing these eye diseases.

The aim of this program is to provide a comprehensive update on the understanding of the aging eye, placing an emphasis on diagnosis and management of age-related eye disease.

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

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:
1. Develop an understanding of the aging of various ocular tissues
2. Review of the latest treatments for ocular diseases associated with aging such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and Age-related macular degeneration.
3. Develop an understanding of diagnostic techniques, including imaging, used for assessing ocular structure and function.

We hope you will join us for this exciting symposium.   Please register online at ocpe.mcw.edu or contact Hattie Waagen 414-955-7842 with questions. http://www.mcw.edu/eiannualsymposium.htm
