Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences

  • Iowa Eye Association Annual Meeting and Educational Program

    The 2015 meeting of the Iowa Eye Association is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 5-6, 2015. Join us for a great educational opportunity and social event as we also celebrate our 90th anniversary as a department!

    The goal of this CME activity is to educate ophthalmologists on new diagnoses and treatments of eye disease and specifically, how to incorporate meeting information into their clinical practices. It includes descriptions and updates on new vision research that have clinical implications. Featured presentations will include topics on cataract/comprehensive, anterior segment, glaucoma, and other areas of interest.

    The Iowa Eye Annual Meeting offers continuing education credits and is sponsored by the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine.
