Anterior Segment Grand Rounds: From the OD and the MD Perspective
As the scope of therapeutic privileges for optometrists continues to expand, the working relationship between optometry and ophthalmology becomes even more important.

This interactive course will examine a variety of uniquely presenting anterior segment disease cases focusing on patient symptoms, diagnostic criteria, impact on vision, and the most current management/treatment options from both the optometrist and ophthalmology perspective.
