Ophthalmic trauma is a leading cause of unilateral blindness in the United States with a devasting impact on both individuals and society. Currently, there is no dedicated conference to ophthalmic trauma in the United States, and the American Society of Ophthalmic Trauma Annual Meeting fills a critical gap in education for medical students, residents, fellows and ophthalmologists of all subspecialties in both private and academic practices.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be better able to:
• Formulate an evidence-based approach to ophthalmic trauma management
• Describe the up-to-date clinical diagnosis and treatment of ophthalmic trauma in open-globe injuries, anterior and posterior segment management of complications of open-globe injuries, diagnosis and management of orbital and adnexal injuries, and unique characteristics of pediatric ophthalmic injuries
• Indicate the cutting-edge scientific discoveries in ophthalmic trauma management
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of The Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and The American Society of Ophthalmic Trauma. The Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
