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

I invite you to attend the 62nd 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 62nd Snell Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Wallace Alward, M.D., the Frederick C. Blodi Chair in Ophthalmology at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. Alward is one of the foremost thought leaders in glaucoma genetics research and clinical gonioscopy, and we are excited about the insights he will share with us about the etiology of this blinding disease.

The Billitier Family Distinguished Professorship Lecture will be delivered by Mark Terry, M.D., who is Director of the Cornea Service at Dever's Eye Hospital. He is known world wide for his surgical acumen and as a pioneer in the area of partial thickness corneal transplantation.

This year's program also includes a superb panel of guest lecturers including Richard Allen, M.D., Ph.D., Michael S. Lee, M.D, Thomas Oetting, M.D., Michael Repka, M.D., M.B.A. and Sunil Srivastava, 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.
