AGENDA

Abstract:

Through a series of case-based presentations, experienced practitioners Dr Graham Lakkis and Dr Chris Raj will compare and contrast their differential diagnostic process and treatment plans for a number of anterior eye conditions in both adults and children, including epidemic keratoconjunctivitis, ocular trauma, recurrent corneal erosion, and vernal conjunctivitis. Primary or secondary presentation, diagnostic equipment, therapeutic prescribing and surgical options will affect the way different practitioners assess and successfully treat the same ocular disease.
