Join us for the 49th Annual Sally Letson Symposium for two and a half days of learning and networking! This year’s meeting “Ocular Trauma Update 2017: Advances in Diagnosis, Imaging, and Management” focuses on trauma to the visual system due to injuries, sports, war and military engagement, and concentrates on practical approaches and interactive discussion of evaluation and management, including new approaches to multimodal imaging and overview of new options for medical, surgical, and reconstructive treatments, including 3-D video presentations.

Learning objectives

At the end of this symposium, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the most up-to-date algorithms for management of patients presenting with ocular trauma
  • List types of injuries to the anterior and posterior segment and understand appropriate workup, management, and subspecialty triage (as needed) of them all
  • Describe current imaging techniques for the traumatized eye and visual system, and their indications and interpretation
  • Outline the full spectrum of ocular trauma from epidemiological, medico-legal, sports, war, and military perspectives
