Advances in Glaucoma Research and Clinical Science 2020 Online

Second Advances in Glaucoma Research and Clinical Science Meeting Online

Free registration!

The Advances in Glaucoma Research and Clinical Science meeting is designed around the New Concepts in Glaucoma book series whose mission is to allow us to consolidate new information and hold forth on speculation in glaucoma. It does so in both the basic sciences and clinical sciences. It is our hope that this consolidation of hypotheses and theories, along with the identification of new information and new speculation will propel us toward a more rapid cure for glaucoma.

The annual meeting will be built upon this mission by facilitating discussion/interaction and further dissemination of ideas and current research. Join an internationally acclaimed faculty in Cyberspace and improve your ability to treat glaucoma based on new research findings, medical and device developments.

2020 Annual CGS Meeting

 
Virtual Canadian Glaucoma Society Meeting
After thoughtful consideration, the Executive Team in collaboration with our Meeting Planning Committee, have decided to proceed with a virtual CGS Meeting for 2020.
 
The CGS Team understands that one of the large benefits of our annual meeting is the in-person dialogue and discussions. However, given the COVID-19 situation, we would still like to provide an opportunity for our members to gather, learn, and educate. We felt it was important to come together in 2020, as it will be some time before we are able to gather again. Our 2021 location will return to Montreal, QC, with a date TBD.
 
The virtual CGS Meeting scheduled for Saturday, November 7th will be at no cost to members.

Columbia University BSCO 2021

 
Columbia University Basic Science Course in Ophthalmology (BSCO) 2021
Since 1941, the Edward S. Harkness Eye Institute at the Columbia University Department of Ophthalmology has offered an ophthalmology basic science course. While the focus of the course is resident training, it has also proven useful for the visual sciences community as a whole. Coursework examines the fundamentals of vision and emphasizes how these basic principles relate to patient care.
 
The curriculum is developed by a committee of active scientists, practicing clinicians and the chief academic resident, and is updated annually to include the most recent scientific advances as well as any controversial developments in the field. It is also continuously revised in response to feedback from previous course evaluations. An international faculty of more than 80 clinicians and scientists is chosen based on expertise, clarity of presentation, and visual aids. In addition to over one hundred hours of lecture, the course includes a two-day orbital dissection, ocular anatomy and histology laboratories, an oculoplastics workshop for fillers and facial rejuvenation, two days of instruction in retinoscopy and refraction, a hands-on imaging workshop including ultrasound, Pentacam and keratography, and a Phaco wet-lab.*
 
The background reading text for the course is The Basic and Clinical Science Course from The Foundation of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, San Francisco, CA.

6th San Raffaele OCT & Retina Forum

 
6th San Raffaele OCT & Retina Forum
Be up to date and build your experience if you want to make the most from the potential of the new imaging technologies and to propose the best new treatments available. This will be one of the goals of the next edition of the San Raffaele OCT Forum: the integration of the new available technologies and treatments into the clinical practice, not only for the sake of research but mainly because they are crucial for retinal disease diagnosis and therapy. We will listen to the main opinion leaders: some of the most well-known international specialists will be in Milan, at the NHOW Hotel, Via Tortona, on March 5-6, 2021, discussing topics that nowadays involve all ophthalmologists in their practice: OCT, OCTA and ultra-widefield imaging, clinical trials, new drugs, and new laser treatments.
 
The congress program will include presentations on imaging, focus on therapies, updates on treatments for maculopathy, vascular and retinal diseases. In particular, some of the most important researchers will show the results of the last trials conducted in their clinical investigation centers.
 
The congress will be an opportunity also for young ophthalmologists. Professor Bandello and Professor Querques have designed a special session, based on the format of previous years: clinical – often challenging – case short presentations, where expert Speakers will give voice to residents and fellows. The patient is thus virtually “visited” by a panel of international experienced ophthalmologists, sharing diagnostic evaluations and discussing the most appropriate therapies.
