The 42ndAnnual Midwest Glaucoma Symposium, to be held at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN on September 6-7, 2019. The course will focus on “The New Era of Glaucoma Diagnosis and Treatment,” and will be held in conjunction with the Minnesota Academy of Ophthalmology meeting.
The Midwest Glaucoma Symposium brings together an outstanding national and international faculty to discuss the latest advances in glaucoma management, from diagnostic tools and evaluation, to the latest in medical and surgical therapy. The field of glaucoma is undergoing rapid changes, and the Midwest Glaucoma Symposium will help to integrate these new ideas into current clinical practice, and provide a preview to the near future.
The Midwest Glaucoma Symposium rotates to a different institution each year, and 2019 marks the first time the symposium will be held at Mayo Clinic. Keynote speakers include Robert Weinreb, UC San Diego (Kapetansky Allergan Lecturer and MAO Lecturer); Jamie Brandt, UC Davis (Cohen Merck Lecture), Kaweh Mansouri, Lausanne, Switzerland (MGS Alcon International Lecture), and Janey Wiggs, Harvard (MGS Allergan Research Lecture). This conference is geared toward comprehensive and subspecialty ophthalmologists, optometrists, residents, fellows, nurses, ophthalmic technicians and other eye care professionals.
