Sponsored by the International Society of Refractive Surgery (ISRS)
This course will provide an overview of the most relevant topics on refractive surgery, including patient evaluation, topographic evaluation, a step-by-step surgical explanation of LASIK and surface ablation procedures, and discussion of surgical complication recognition and management, providing a basis upon which these individuals in training may begin to grow their knowledge base and gain comfort in practicing independently after graduation.
The course will be an interactive didactic session led by recognized experts and international leaders in the field of refractive surgery, but will be specifically directed at the resident education level, as opposed to many of the courses at AAO directed towards specialists already in practice. This focus should allow the resident to gain the optimal learning experience.
2012 Joint Meeting registration includes access to this symposium.
