Advances in Medical Glaucoma Management (78855-GL)
New medications provide practitioners greater opportunities to manage glaucoma better than ever before. Two new classes of medications will be presented along with currently available stand-alone and combination agents.

Elevating Your Eyelid Practice - Modernizing Your Approach to Ptosis Diagnosis and Management (78550-TD)
Ptosis is a relatively common finding in today’s optometry practice. However, it has historically been underdiagnosed due to a lack of good treatment options. This course will discuss modernized clinical guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of acquired ptosis recently published in Optometry and Vision Science and how to apply them to our practices.
10:00 a.m. - 11:40 a.m.
Clash of the Treatments: What Myopia Control Option Would You Choose? (78948-GO)
Jeff Walline, Benjamin Cyphers, Marielle Reidy, Cayti McDaniel
This case-based presentation will include an advocate for each of the three myopia control options available in the United States today: soft multifocal contact lenses, orthokeratology, and low concentration atropine. After hearing why each advocate would choose their treatment, audience members will choose the option they would use as a first-line treatment for that patient. Panel members will answer audience questions at the end.
11:40 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
12:30 p.m. - 1:20 p.m.
Perplexing Pupils (78829-NO)
Pupil size and function is something that is typically assessed for all patients at annual eye exams, but when differences in pupil size, shape and reactivity are seen, the underlying etiology of these findings require prompt and correct diagnosis for proper patient care. This lecture will present a review of pupillary function/structure, congenital and acquired pupil conditions, as well as diagnostic tests to assess pupil function in order to give clinicians the confidence to assess and manage common pupillary conditions appropriately.
1:30 p.m. - 2:20 p.m.
Access to Care, A Public Health Perspective (78801-PB)
In this course we will examine the various definitions of access to care. We will explore how and why optometrists are suited to provide increased access to care. We will also discuss several factors that are leading to an increased demand for care, while exploring the workforce demographics as they currently exist.
2:30 p.m. - 3:20 p.m.
A review and update on Keratoconus (78802-TD)
This course will review the current epidemiology, etiology, pathophysiology, diagnostics, classification and management. The discussion on management will include corneal cross linking, contact lenses, implantable ring segments, transplants (penetrating keratoplasty & deep anterior lamellar keratoplasy) and topography guided refractive surgery.
