    Cataract meeting outgrows Sarasota, moves to Naples in 2016

    January 13-17, 2016 at Naples Grande Resort


    The meeting officially kicks off Thursday afternoon. Highlights include the “showdown” events for which the meeting is known. “Showdowns allow the attendee to see head-to-head-to-head presentations by surgeons who use different technologies in the same category,” Dr. Osher said.

    These include a new technology showdown, a biometry showdown, a microscope showdown, a phaco machine showdown, toric IOL showdown, and presbyopia-correcting IOL showdown.

    The afternoon wraps up with “Femtomania: Caution vs. Conviction,” an event which Dr. Osher said he thinks will be particularly interesting. “It will present a balanced picture on the state of the art for femto – positive and negative,” he explained.

    Following a sponsored dinner, the Ophthalmic Mutual Insurance Company will offer “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: OMIC’s Top Ten Cataract Claims.” Ophthalmologists can have their malpractice insurance premiums lowered as a result of attending.
