    Cataract meeting outgrows Sarasota, moves to Naples in 2016

    January 13-17, 2016 at Naples Grande Resort

    The annual “Cataract Surgery: Telling It Like It Is!” meeting has grown so much that after five years, it has had to relocate from Sarasota to Naples, Florida, to accommodate all the attendees and exhibitors.

    “We had no choice,” said Robert H. Osher, MD, course director and professor of Ophthalmology, University of Cincinnati. He also is medical director emeritus of the Cincinnati Eye Institute and editor of the Video Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. “Every seat was taken and we had difficulty fitting 500 ophthalmologists and more than 100 exhibitors into the limited number of hotels available in Sarasota.”

    Dr. Osher started the meeting out of a frustration with the limits on what information can be shared at events that offer continuing medical education (CME) credits. This meeting provides honest, intense clinical information in an innovative and entertaining format, he said, but no CME credits.

    “It is no surprise that we have sold out each of our previous meetings given an All-Star faculty providing the highest quality uncensored education at an affordable price,” he said. “Despite all of our growth, though, the meeting is still small enough to allow attendees to have up-close interaction with the faculty, all of whom are approachable and talk from the heart. They frequently stay after sessions to continue the dialogue, and enjoy talking with attendees at the meals and after-hours events as well.”

    The 2016 conference will be held Jan. 13 to 17 at the Naples Grande Resort. The fee is $625 for physicians who register by Dec. 15, and $675 if registering after Dec. 15 or onsite. A discounted rate is available for residents and fellows. The registration fee includes all general sessions, tutorials, exhibits, New Technology Symposium, and many meals. A neurology program and wet labs are available for an additional fee.

    Rooms at the Naples Grand Resort are already fully booked but several nearby hotels, most with lower rates, still have space available.
