Conference Brochure

The Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute's 32nd Annual Current Concepts in Ophthalmology is organized by Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) and will be held from Dec 05 - 06, 2019 at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America.

Target Audience:
Ophthalmology, Optometry

Description:
This Current Concepts course will highlight the recent developments regarding diagnosis as well as medical and surgical therapy of common eye diseases. The participant should get a comprehensive review of the most current concepts in the management of ophthalmology by experts across the breadth of the field. For example, clinical trials and other evidence in the peer-reviewed literature over the past few years have changed the approach to managing cataract including IOL technology and femtosecond laser cataract surgery, corneal disease including dry eye disease, keratoplasty, and collagen cross linking, glaucoma and minimally invasive glaucoma surgical devices, as well as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and retinal vein occlusions. Furthermore, the role of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and other imaging advances are expanding the understanding of the anatomy of the anterior and posterior segment of the eye. This course will address the ongoing pattern of registrants with repeat requests for case presentations of the latest surgical techniques and medical therapies, questions regarding practice management issues and clarification of legislative updates. There is a demand for expert education of new techniques and medical therapies as well as the need for elucidation of associated clinical trials, and this course provides extensive coverage of that.

Objectives:
• Integrate prescribed medical and surgical treatment options into everyday practice.
• Assess the perioperative use of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory agents in patients undergoing eye surgery.
• Examine external legislative and internal practice issues impacting the field of ophthalmology.
• Formulate current and advanced medical and surgical treatment strategies as well as imaging with corresponding ocular conditions, including: glaucoma, retina, anterior segment including "dry eye", uveitis, refractive surgery and laser assisted cataract and corneal transplant surgery.
• Discuss new medical techniques, therapies and recently published, relevant clinical trials
• Evaluate emerging literature on the efficacy, safety, and cost-effectiveness of femtosecond-assisted laser cataract surgery.
• Summarize the latest developments for the management of anterior and posterior segment problems.
• Assess the latest developments for the management of pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus conditions.
• Describe unique considerations for cataract surgery in patients with comorbid glaucoma.

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
