I was recently asked how much my practice and technologies have changed since my cornea fellowship approximately 20 years ago and realized that I no longer apply the majority of what I learned as a fellow, especially in the operating room. With an explosion of research and technologies focused on corneal disease, we as ophthalmologists must keep up with an ever-accelerating innovation cycle. In this interactive webinar, we will look at the Top Five Discoveries/Technologies in the last 10 years and look ahead at what is in the pipeline for our future practice. We will look ahead at the latest techniques and technologies for corneal imaging, drug treatments/delivery, genetics, and surgery, especially transplantation and refractive surgery. At the end of this session, the audience will have an engaging assessment of the current corneal landscape and have an interactive session at the end to ask questions and have discussions on where we will be in the next 5-10 years to better treat our patients.
