PO-Essentials of Surgical Ophthalmic Pathology for the Optometric Lid Surgeon
This course will provide an overview of the essentials needed for an excisional lid surgeon to properly understand the pre-operative, pathology-related decisions and interpretation of pathology reports required when a surgical specimen will result from the procedure. This will include familiarization with choice of fixative options, use of pre-processing inks to identify tumor margins, special stains and their meaning in reading a pathology report, a review of histology and surgical pathology terminology and special consideration of procedures routinely done when granulomatous tissue is encountered.

AOA Expiration Date:
A successful practice takes a village—doctors of optometry and paraoptometric staff—to make it work and even prosper. Toward that end, the AOA has created a trove of practice management tools and services that can power practices forward in a profession and health care landscape that increasingly demands doctors practice at their highest levels and creates greater opportunities to develop and empower paraoptometric staff. These days, change is out of necessity.
A recent #AskAOA webinar, hosted by the AOA Third Party Center, offered helpful advice for how doctors can address and respond to clawbacks.
Most states require health care providers, including doctors of optometry, to report cases of abuse of children and elderly adults. AOA members are invited to attend an important webinar on the serious subject of human trafficking.
