Date & Location
Saturday, January 27, 2018 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM   Baltimore, MD

Oculoplastics is a multi-faceted field that is constantly evolving. The periocular region may be affected by acquired conditions, including trauma, infection, malignancy, and anophthalmia, as well as systemic disease, such as thyroid associated orbitopathy. Understanding new developments in the field is essential to providing optimal care of patients with disorders of the eyelids, lacrimal system and orbit, which can have serious ophthalmic consequences and may confer morbidity both locally and systemically. Experts in the field will discuss the pathophysiology and optimal management of eyelid, lacrimal system and orbital disease, along with a panel discussion of periocular reconstruction techniques.

This activity is intended for comprehensive ophthalmologists, optometrists, pediatric ophthalmologists, ophthalmology residents and fellows, primary care physicians, otolaryngologists, otolaryngology residents and fellows, facial plastic surgeons and fellows, plastic surgeons, plastic surgery residents and fellows.
