Target Audience and Needs

Ophthalmologists, residents, fellows, medical students, and other healthcare professionals need to recognize the variety of ocular conditions associated with systemic disease. The series aims to address ocular conditions that require early diagnosis and management to prevent serious complications. Common and complex cases that reflect typical and atypical presentations and pathology will be reviewed.

Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, literature review, and panel discussion.


At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:

  • Identify typical and atypical presentations of common ophthalmic conditions and implement the appropriate treatment.
  • Recognize complex pathology and institute an algorithm to properly diagnose, refer, and treat.
  • Outline the literature in regard to illustrative cases and discuss the most up-to-date treatment modalities.
  • Incorporate best practice guidelines for patients with severe ocular conditions.


Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
