Vision organizations converge in Boston


The new Boston Convention and Exhibition Center will house the 2010 annual meetings of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the American Society of Ophthalmic Administrators Congress on ophthalmic practice management, and a program for technicians and nurses, April 9-14.

Immediately preceding the ASCRS and ASOA annual meetings, several specialty-related events are slated, beginning with World Cornea Congress VI from April 7 to 9.

The Cornea Society sponsors the congress about every 5 years to highlight the progress that has been made in both clinical and research endeavors of the international corneal community. The three-day meeting will include both invited speakers and a call for papers, as well as a poster session each day and an exhibit hall.

ASCRS Glaucoma Day 2010. The daylong event will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The program will feature leading faculty, lectures, panel discussions, debates, and surgical video reviews.
