Like a deep-dish pizza, the menu of what we see daily consists of common ingredients. So why cook our brains trying to remember the obscure when there is still so much to learn about diseases that present more-or-less routinely in our offices?  This practical six-hour course will further explore familiar findings:  Diabetic retinopathy and the DRCR Retina Network Protocols, AMD and geographical atrophy with new treatments and OCT biomarkers; vitreomacular interface disorders, glaucoma gaffes, neuro cases, and the often-overlooked choroid.  After digesting this lecture, you’ll have a different taste for these common conditions and a fresh insight for improved care of those in your chair.
