    View the Brochure & Agenda

    The OOS Annual Meeting for physicians is going virtual! As our largest in-person gathering event of the year, it wasn’t an easy decision, but with so much uncertainty due to COVID-19, we are confident going virtual is the right decision. The 2021 event will be a blend of on-demand and live webinar education that includes:

    • Accredited Internet on-demand education ‘homework’ you can access beginning Feb. 1

    • Accredited live webinar engagement on Saturday, Feb. 27 from 8:00 – 10:45 am with speakers and fellow OOS members

    The agenda features the latest innovations in ophthalmology presented by nationally and internationally recognized speakers. The on-demand ‘homework’ sessions enable you to listen and learn at your convenience and reduces the length needed for the live webinar. The live webinar enables you to share, connect and discuss; conduct Q&A with the speakers; and participate using instant polls to assess learning. You can earn up to 5.5 AMA PRA Category 1™ credits and ABO MOC credits for participating, and you will get the exceptional education that you’ve come to expect from the OOS annual meeting experience but with the added benefit of accessing this education from the comfort and convenience of your home or office – at no charge for OOS members this year!

    Intent and Overview

    More efficient detection and treatment of ophthalmic conditions and diseases are constantly being discovered and acted upon. This program is based upon the need to apprise local physicians of the diagnostic modalities and treatments being utilized at teaching centers and ophthalmologic offices across the country.

    Meeting Objectives

    This course will highlight the recent developments regarding diagnosis as well as medical and surgical therapy of common eye diseases. The participant should get a comprehensive review of the most current concepts in the management of ophthalmology by experts across the breadth of the field. For example, clinical trials and other evidence in the peer-reviewed literature over the past few years have changed the approach to managing cataract including IOL technology and femtosecond laser cataract surgery, corneal disease including dry eye disease, keratoplasty, and collagen cross linking, glaucoma and minimally invasive glaucoma surgical devices, as well as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and retinal vein occlusions. This course also includes legislative updates as it pertains to Ophthalmologists and their practice. At the conclusion of this meeting, participants should be able to:

    • Update their knowledge of diagnosis and treatment of common and rare ophthalmic diseases.
    • Identify major advances in key areas of cutting-edge research and technology in Ophthalmology.
    • Identify (appropriately) subsets of patients who may benefit from new treatment paradigms, diagnostic testing, or surgical interventions.
    • Incorporate new treatment paradigms, diagnostic approaches, and surgical techniques into current clinical practice.
    • Review, modify and hone surgical skills and approaches to specific eye problems and clinical situations.
    • Develop strategies to identify and address their own individual professional practice gaps
