This course will review the different corneal surgeries, including lamellar keratectomy, penetrating keratoplasty, descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty, descemet's stripping endothelial keratoplasty, and deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty.

Learn about the priority federal issues that hundreds of optometrists and optometry students will take to Capitol Hill as part of optometry’s single-largest annual advocacy gathering, April 14-16, and how you can join.
Although about 13% of the U.S. population is Black, they are woefully underrepresented in optometry. They represent about 2% of practicing doctors of optometry and a little over 3% of full-time students in optometry schools and colleges, according to studies. Black doctors of optometry seek to grow those numbers.
