Mid-Winter Ocular Oncology Symposium

7:30 AM to 12:00 PM


Topic TBD


This symposium will provide detailed, interactive discussions about the differential diagnosis and management of the intraocular, conjunctival, and orbital tumors. It will be in the format of case presentations, and interactive discussions about these tumors. Physicians will learn how to diagnosis these tumors by looking for clinical signs, ordering correct tests, and providing the differential diagnosis and appropriate management. The physicians will know when to biopsy or observe these tumors. These tumors are rare, and physicians don’t get enough exposure and experience in management of these tumors. This symposium will fill this gap by providing interactive, case-based presentations. By the end of this activity, participants will intellectually know: the clinical presentation, and examination findings and be able to order tests and manage intraocular, conjunctival and orbital tumors.
