I invite you to attend the 67th Annual Ophthalmology Conference in Rochester, New York. We look forward to this year's meeting as we welcome guest faculty from the top of their sub-specialties. The 67th Snell Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Liliana Werner, M.D., Ph.D., Co-Director of the Intermountain Ocular Research Center, at the John A. Moran Eye Center, University of Utah. We are excited to learn about the insights she will share with in the treatment of cataracts and of intraocular lens design.

I also bring exciting news that this conference will mark the fourth Frederick Dushay, M.D., Distinguished Visiting Professor Lecture. The lecture honors the work of long-time Rochester community ophthalmologist and resident educator Fred Dushay. This year, we welcome Rohit Khanna, M.B.B.S., from L.V. Prasad Eye Institute. There he is Professor of the Network Director for the Public Health Unit of LVPEI. 

This year's program also includes a superb panel lecturers from our own faculty of internationally renowned experts. We hope that you enjoy the second season of the Ross Debates in Ophthalmology. These lively Pro vs. Con style presentations are structured maximize audience participation and intended to create stimulating conversation about the latest innovations in our specialty. Our program for allied health professionals and ophthalmic technicians also features a single track of fast-paced presentations aimed at delivering skills-based information to improve performance in your exam, diagnostic and operating rooms.

Please join me in recognizing 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 in-person and online.
