Elevating Your Eyelid Practice - Modernizing Your Approach to Ptosis Diagnosis and Management (78550-TD)
Shane Foster

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.

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.
