Rochester Ophthalmology Conference
March 18-19, 2016
Message from Steven Feldon, M.D., M.B.A.
I invite you to attend the 61st Annual Ophthalmology Conference in Rochester, New York. This year’s program promises to be excellent as we welcome guest faculty from the top of their sub-specialties. The 61st Snell Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Victor Perez, M.D., Walter G. Ross Distinguished Chair of Ophthalmology Research at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. Perez is one of the foremost thought leaders in corneal research, and we are excited about the insights he will share with us about new approaches to corneal and ocular surface disease.
The Billitier Family Distinguished Professorship Lecture will be delivered by Christopher Girkin, M.D., who is Chair of Ophthalmology at University of Alabama, Birmingham and Director of the Callahan Eye Institute. He is known world wide for his research on the effects of age, race, and glaucomatous injury on the morphology and biomechanical behavior of the optic nerve.
This year's program also includes a superb panel of guest lecturers including Robert Fante, M.D., F.A.C.S., Suber Huang, M.D., M.B.A., Randy Kardon, M.D., Ph.D, and Laurence Sperber, M.D. as well as our own faculty of experts. Our program for allied health professionals and ophthalmic technicians also features two tracks of superior topics aimed at delivering skills-based information to improve performance in your exam, diagnostic and operating rooms.
I would like to recognize our exhibitors and sponsors. Each year they help underwrite the cost to bring world class experts in ophthalmology to Rochester while keeping the cost of continuing education reasonable for all. Thank you for taking time out of your busy professional and personal schedules each year to attend. Your continued support not only has made this conference one of the nation’s longest standing meetings, but also one of the best.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Steven Feldon, M.D., M.B.A.
Director of the Flaum Eye Institute
