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

I invite you to attend the 65th 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 65th Snell Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Reza Dana, M.D.,  Claes H. Dohlman Professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard University. We are excited about the insights he will share with us trends in the treatment of corneal disease.

I also bring exciting news that this conference will mark the inaugural Frederick Dushay, M.D., Distinguished Visiting Professor Lecture. The lecture honors the work of long-time Rochester community ophthalmologist and resident educator Fred Dushay. The first even lecture will be delivered by David J. Wilson, M.D., the Thiele-Petti Chair, Department of Ophthalmology at Oregon Health Sciences University and Director of the Casey Eye Institute. He is one of the world’s leading experts in the ocular pathology and retinal imaging.

This year's program also includes a superb panel of guest lecturers including Ramesh Ayyala, M.B.B.S., Suzanne Freitag, M.D., Janet Rucker, M.D., and John Vukich, 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.
