    Program overview

    Dr. Osher said the general meeting format involves video symposia in the morning, wet labs and tutorials in the afternoon, and interactive sessions in the evening.

    “Morning topics include challenging cases, complication management, selecting IOLs in difficult situations, and several wonderful keynote lectures, including one by Binkhorst Award recipient and ASCRS Grand Prize winner, Dr. Abhay Vasavada of India. George Waring IV, MD, will give a memorial lecture celebrating the magnificent career of his father, who passed away in January. It will be inspirational,” Dr. Osher said.

    Twenty-three wet labs will be offered in the afternoons. Attendees can learn to perform anterior vitrectomy through the pars plana, reconstruct iris defects by pupillary cerclage or prosthetic iris devices, use new intracameral devices for challenging cases, or attend a variety of hands-on skill and didactic sessions.

    The evening sessions will include the best international videos that Dr. Osher has selected from the Video Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, a risk management session, an overview of essential business principles, and a new session with young ophthalmic “stars.”

    “I anticipate that I will be serving beer and pretzels to hundreds of ophthalmologists at 11 p.m.,” Dr. Osher said.
