Glaucoma 2005 convenes in San Francisco this September

August 1, 2005

The agenda is set for Glaucoma 2005 on Saturday, Sept. 17 at the Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco, with a program aimed at helping ophthalmologists master the tools and techniques of glaucoma diagnosis and therapy.

Major topics will include the benefits and limitations of new diagnostic technologies and how to integrate them into clinical practice, an evidence-based clinical approach to risk assessment in the ocular hypertensive and glaucoma patient, innovations in surgery for the patient with glaucoma, and challenging clinical cases.

Upon completion of this course, participants will have learned specific benefits and limitations of diagnostic technologies, practical approaches to risk assessment and management of the patient with suspected glaucoma, advances in surgical techniques, and practical approaches to challenging glaucoma cases. Participants will be able to incorporate their knowledge of these advances in glaucoma diagnosis and therapy into their clinical practices, thus providing the best possible care to their patients, either directly or through appropriate informed referrals.

The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Center for Continuing and Outreach Education designates this educational activity for a maximum of 6 hours of category 1 credit toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. The program is supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Pfizer Ophthalmics. To register or request more information, call 888/248-0036 or 218/723-9130 or visit http://otcme.com.
