Call for Complicated and Challenging Cases - Submissions Now Being Accepted.
Share Your Complicated and Challenging Cases at the 2018 ASCRS•ASOA Annual Meeting
Have you encountered any unique and interesting patient cases? Consider sharing these cases with your peers at the 2018 ASCRS•ASOA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
The ASCRS Cataract Clinical Committee is in search of video cases for the Complicated and Challenging Cases in Cataract Surgery Video Symposium. The symposium will take place Monday, April 16, 2018 from 8 – 9:30 a.m.
Speakers will have the opportunity to present unusual and challenging video cases involving any aspect of phaco, Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and IOLs from your practice. Presentations must be no longer than five minutes. If your case is selected, you will have five minutes to describe the clinical aspects of the case. The Cataract Clinical Committee panel and other audience members will then discuss the case for three to four minutes, and the panel will award “The Golden Apple” to the best teaching case.
The selection criteria will emphasize clinical and educational merit. If you plan to attend the meeting and would like to participate in this special session, please contact Jennifer Carstens for an invitation to upload a copy of your video to the ASCRS Dropbox account. All videos must be received via Dropbox by Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017. Only one submission per presenter is allowed.
*Please be certain your video is created as an MPEG or Windows Media file (.wmv). No exceptions will be made. A maximum of two PowerPoint slides should be included (one containing title and financial interest, the second with a brief case history). If your video will not include narration, please note this in the PowerPoint slide.*
