More Subspecialty Days

Glaucoma, in conjunction with the American Glaucoma Society, will be packed with lots of new approaches. Microincisional glaucoma surgery (MIGS) will be one of the hottest topics. There will also be excellent discussions on challenging cases in glaucoma and on combining procedures with cataract surgery, which overlaps with MIGS.

There is also a neuro-ophthalmology subspecialty day in conjunction with the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (NANOS), featuring a number of case presentations. This seems to be a case presentation-based meeting, and you know how intriguing neuro-ophthalmology can be with puzzling chief complaints, medical histories, and imaging, so it looks like it is a pretty packed session for those of you with interest in that area.

The session on oculofacial plastic surgery is in conjunction with the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. I would like to draw your particular attention to "Controversies in Facial Cosmetic Surgery" and also "Lessons From the Masters," which should be intriguing, as well as a section on "Surgical Myths and Other Widespread Paradigms Without Level One Evidence." That is a pretty good topic and should generate some real controversy.

Not to be outdone, the pediatric ophthalmologists are having their section in conjunction with the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus, and you are going to love this one: "Strabismus Surgery -- I Would Like to Use My Mulligan, Please." You know you are going to see some interesting problems -- and hopefully some interesting solutions -- in that session, as well as in "Controversies in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus" and "Common Pediatric Neuro-ophthalmic Dilemmas," which will wrap up that session.
