Dear Colleague,

The three day Continuing Education Program offers an immersive experience designed to update one of the current trends in surgical management of glaucoma.  The sessions are designed to meet the expectation of ophthalmic surgeons, glaucoma specialists, residents and fellows seeking to understand the current role of trabeculectomy, minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, non-penetrating glaucoma surgeries, and tube implants in glaucoma treatment armamentarium.  There is immense opportunity to delve into the intricacies of glaucoma surgical techniques by a combination of video assisted lecture sessions, wet lab hands on practice and interactive discussions.  Faculty, drawn from an array of different institutions and practices from across India would share their knowledge, tips, tricks in guiding the participants in tackling the patients in their clinical practice with varied mix of complexity and severity of glaucoma.

The surgical symposium of Glaucoma is also preceded by an update session on molecular genetics in ophthalmology with several experts, both national and international, congregated to share their knowledge on clinical genetics of some of the mere common intended diseases of the eye.

We would like to invite you to join us to participate in this enlightening journey to apprise us of the recent knowledge & skills on clinical ophthalmic genetics and glaucoma surgery, in a place none other than claimed to be the Athens of East, and one of the most ancient cities known to mankind.

Madurai, the city known for its varied culture, heritage of the famed Tamil Sangam age, beckons you
