Steven E. Feldon, M.D.
Director of the Eye Institute

I invite you to attend the 63rd 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 63rd Snell Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Julia Haller, M.D., William Tasman, M.D. Endowed Chair at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, where she is Ophthalmologist-in-Chief. Haller is one of the foremost thought leaders in retinal surgery and medical treatments for retinal disease. We are excited about the insights she will share with us about her sub-specialty.

The Billitier Family Distinguished Visiting Professor Lecture will be delivered by Terrence P. O'Brien, M.D., the Charlotte Breyer Rodgers Chair in Ophthalmology and Director of the Refractive Surgery Service, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at Palm Beach Gardens. He is one of the world’s leading experts in the fields of refractive surgery and ocular infectious disease.

This year's program also includes a superb panel of guest lecturers including Steven Arshinoff, M.D., F.R.C.S.C., David Friedman, M.D., M.P.H, Ph.D, Scott Olitsky, M.D., and Robert Sergott, 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.

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 there.
