At The Virginia Eye Institute, we believe it’s our duty to keep up to date with the latest in medical technology. Recently, several of our doctors made the trek to San Francisco to participate in The American Academy of Ophthalmology’s annual meeting. The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) is the world’s foremost association of eye physicians and surgeons. Throughout the duration of the meeting doctors learn about the newest cutting edge developments in medical technology, technique, and treatment.
Read what our team had to say about this years meeting below!
“The American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting in San Francisco was very productive this year. I participated in an investigator’s meeting for the Zoster Eye Disease study. Our enrollment is at the national average, which is encouraging as many of the other participating sites contain larger academic departments. We still need to work hard to enroll more patients, as nationwide enrollment is lagging a bit below average. We can help move this important research forward by enrolling patients who are eligible and interested in participating. I was also able to attend seminars regarding the newest techniques and treatment for scleral fixation of intraocular lenses, dry eye, infectious corneal disease, and corneal transplantation. There are new developments in all of these areas that I am hopeful to be able to bring to our patients here in Richmond.” – Dr. Christopher Estopinal
