Over the 45 year history of the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at Yale, scientific discovery and treatment options for the range of ocular diseases have evolved into a massive body of knowledge. The faculty presenters are contemporary experts in focused ophthalmic disciplines including cornea and external disease, glaucoma and retina, and will describe vision-saving medical and surgical therapies now considered the gold standard. This year we explore updates in pediatric ophthalmology and adult retinal disorders, in addition to comprehensive offerings in glaucoma, cornea, and visual science.
