Registration and welcome

Welcome to Cataract Surgery: Telling It Like It Is! This meeting provides intense, useful clinical information in an innovative and entertaining format. It is no surprise that we have sold out each of our seven previous meetings given an All-Star faculty providing the highest quality uncensored education at an affordable price.

We have just finished reading nearly 500 evaluations and we are adding more faculty, more topics, and more fireworks! We want every attendee to depart Naples more confident about delivering the best possible surgical care.

Check out the program agenda and  look for our registration page to open up the first week of May.  You have my promise that this meeting is unlike any other that you have ever attended anywhere on the planet.

It is hard to believe how our wetlab offerings have expanded in number and breath of topics. We have 30 wetlabs scheduled for Amelia Island and most are the result of suggestions from previous attendees. There will be two types of wetlabs: one will be a structured course while the other will offer an opportunity to simply come in and try a technology. We have listed the wetlabs below, but to register for these you will have to scroll up to the Yellow REGISTER button, even if you have already registered for the meeting, in which case you will need your email address and confirmation number previously sent to you to MODIFY your registration to add these wetlabs.  But take a look below and see what we are offering.
