Description:

The use of laser energy to treat various anterior segment conditions, including posterior capsular opacification (PCO), angle closure glaucoma, and open angle glaucoma, has been used by optometric physicians in certain states for over a decade now.  This interactive lab will review and update these ophthalmic laser procedures.  Attendees will get to perform YAG capsulotomies, laser peripheral iridotomies, and SLT's with actual lasers on model eyes.
