The UCSF Ophthalmology Update will feature local and internationally known experts in the areas of glaucoma, cataract, retina, uveitis, pediatric ophthalmology, oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery, neuro-ophthalmology and  refractive surgery. The program is designed for comprehensive ophthalmologists including those who perform cataract surgery, manage patients  with glaucoma, optic nerve disorders, and retinovascular disease.

  • Advantages and disadvantages of monofocal, toric, and premium intraocular lenses in patients with keratoconus, diabetes, uveitis and glaucoma.
  • Precautions to prevent development or worsening of diabetic macular edema after cataract surgery.
  • Determining who is a candidate for treatment with intravitreal therapy for geographic atrophy.
  • Mechanisms of action for therapy for geographic atrophy.
  • Identifying patients that are at risk for developing choroidal neovascularization with treatment for geotraphic atrophy.
  • Trabeculectomy and glaucoma drainage devices in the management of advanced glaucoma.
  • Identifying candidates for ciliary body cyclodestructive procedures.
  • Identifying candidates with angle closure glaucoma who are candidates for clear lens extraction.
  • Current research surrounding the role of biomechanics in the development and progression of glaucoma.
