EYE TRENDZ – REFRACTIVE – 2017
(PRESENT TRENDS AND RECENT ADVANCES IN CORNEAL LASER REFRACTIVE SURGERY)
Lotus Eye Hospital and Institute
As you know, there are many advances and refinements in corneal laser refractive surgery. Two laser technologies widely separated by wavelengths and mode of action are now in use. We started with surface ablation, moved to flap technique and are now moving towards flapless techniques. Over the years we have enriched our knowledge and skill to improve safety, precision, predictability and visual outcome. Breath taking advances are taking place in ReLEx SMILE, Presbyopic correction and corneal ectasia treatment. Dr. Rohit shetty from Bangalore will share with us the research benefits in refractive surgery. Dr. Arul Mozhi Varman will discuss the clinical pearls in ReLEx SMILE. We invite the practicing ophthalmologists for this purely scientific deliberation to come, share, learn and meet friends.
The interactive session is planned for an hour and the post graduates and fellows are invited to ask more but relevant questions. To motivate the Post graduates for interaction, best three questions will be selected and rewarded. So the Post graduates are encouraged to come with questions and clear their doubts.
