'Telling it like it is', a cataract course, returns


Robert H. Osher, MD, loves teaching but he bristles at the restrictions that come with some meetings and their CME providers.

"The positive feedback we got convinced me we were offering something truly unique and extraordinarily educational," said Dr. Osher, professor of ophthalmology at the University of Cincinnati, medical director emeritus of the Cincinnati Eye Institute, and editor of the Video Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.

Planning is in full swing now for the second year of the course, set for Jan. 19 to 22, 2012, at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota, FL. Due to last year's success, the course's floor plans have been adjusted to accommodate 425 physicians, 100 more than attended last year.

"The faculty is totally committed to providing relevant education," Dr. Osher said. "We have talked all year about ways to make it even better. We are not resting on our laurels."


Dr. Osher said that the top-notch faculty-"the most experienced in the world," he calls it- is what really sets the course apart.

Returning from last year:

Also, Lisa Arbisser, MD, who directs the vitrectomy course for the American Academy of Ophthalmology, will share her expertise on the topic and Robert Weinstock, MD, will present a 3-D video symposium.
