On Friday, “the academics get strong,” according to Dr. Osher. Sessions will focus on routine phaco techniques, challenging cases, favorite instrumentation, and the most difficult cases imaginable.
Dr. Masket will deliver a keynote address, “Feeling Positive About Negative Dysphoria.”
Friday afternoon includes the wet labs, an aspect of the course that Dr. Osher said is always popular. More than 30 wet labs will be offered at the meeting, and they are “guaranteed to raise your skill and outcomes,” he said.
A session on ergonomics and 3-D surgery also will be offered Friday.
Friday evening will bring a choice of three symposia, followed by another interactive session, “Late Night with the Experts,” starting at 10 p.m.
“These intimate late-night settings are a chance to drink a beer and interact with the faculty,” Dr. Osher said. “It’s a chance to get some wonderful casual, but useful education.”
