Prof. Dr. med. Peter Wiedemann
Scientifc Program Chairman
Thanks to the critical contributions from the world's leading ophthalmologists,
we have prepared an exciting scientifc program for the WOC2012, which covers
35 subspecialty areas with symposia, case studies, debates, panel discussions,
video sessions, interactive lectures and much more. We planned a truly
comprehensive, innovative and state of the art program that will suit the
expectations of all our attendees.

Failed Graft-Never Say Die!
Synopsis: Almost third of the grafts (penetrating/lamellar) fail. A repeat
surgery is needed for restoring vision. Repeat penetrating keratoplasty
(PK) has an increased risk of failure. In contrast, an endothelial keratoplasty
(DSEK) in such cases more predictable outcomes and advantages in terms
of freedom from sutures, reduced steroid dependency and reduced follow
up. Even DSEK may undergo failure. In such cases, a repeat DSEK or a PK is
needed. Each procedure has its own pros and cons. There is sparse
literature regarding outcomes of such surgery. Despite multiple attempts,
graft failure may be inevitable in some cases. Keratoprosthesis may be an
answer to this. The criteria for selection of the procedure, technique, post
operative medication and follow up vary for each one of them. A repeat
DSEK requires modifcations in standard technique. All these have bearing
on the fnal outcome and prognosis.
Objective: At the end of the course, the attendee will be familiar with the
indications, surgical modalities and modifcations, follow up and
benefts-risks of repeat graft (PK, DSEK and Keratoprosthesis) for graft
failure.

Objective: Video assisted surgical management of coexisting cataract and
glaucoma cases by small incision cataract surgery (SICS) combined with
trabeculectomy.
Summary of Content: This procedure is of much use for ophthalmologists
confdent about SICS but still not comfortable with phacoemulsifcation in
all types of cataract cases.

Uveitis: Basic Understanding and Diagnostic Approaches Made Easy
Objective: To provide a basic understanding of the disease processes and
to discuss a prudent and user friendly approach to the diferential
diagnosis of Uveitic entities.
Summary of Content: Uveitis is a heterogeneous group of ocular
infammatory conditions with varied presentations and often a sight
threatening prognosis. The instruction course begins by elucidating a basic
understanding of the underlying disease processes. Disease entities are
grouped into predominantly infammatory/ immunological, infectious
with potential for hypersensitivity, purely infectious states in either normal
or immuno-compromised hosts and masquerade syndromes. Next,
rational use of basic, advanced and supportive laboratory investigations
along with their potential redundancy and fallacies is discussed, followed
by the role of ancillary tests. Finally, the indications and techniques of
invasive diagnostic interventions is elaborated.
Target Audience: General Ophthalmologists
Educational Level: Beginners and those at intermediate level.

Stereo Anatomy of Orbit, Eyelid, and Lacrimal System From the Surgeon's Perspective
To gain familiarity with the anatomy of the orbit and ocular adnexae verbal
description and cross section illustrations are inadequate. Three dimensional
images of dissections ofer a unique way of appreciating structural relationships,
whithout the segmentation of continuous units inherent in cross sections.
We present a series of such stereo images, from a viewpoint of the
surgeon needing to know her or his way around the region.

Increased Test-Retest Variability Typically Precedes Defnite
Glaucomatous Field Defects in Early Glaucoma

08:30 - 10:00
Presenter: Tutul Chakravarti
Early feld loss is often represented by a region of variable responses rather
than by a localized deep scotoma. Increased local fuctuations typically
precede defnite glaucomatous feld defects in early glaucoma in a set of
subjects with 1) ocular hypertension, 2) Primary Angle Closure and 3)
glaucoma suspects who converted to glaucoma with early localized
defects. The conversion to glaucoma is a reproducible glaucomatous feld
defect at the moment of their conversion in Automated Perimetry. This
retrospective chart reviews 129 cases (256 charts; 243 OHT+9 PAC+4
glaucoma suspects).Participants were tested once half-yearly and followed
up 4-7 years. Early defects manifested as increased variable responses in
afected areas of 9 charts out of 31 converted charts (25 converted
patients).Variability occurs mostly at pathological points in those 9 charts.
Test-retest variability increases in the areas fnally becoming defnitely
abnormal and representing warning signs of absolute defects.

Changing Trends in Trabeculectomy
Video Assisted Skill Transfer Course
Sat 18 Feb Capital Suite 4CO-GLA-SA 200 10:30 - 12:00
Presenters: Ganesh Venkataraman, Sathyan Parthasarathi, Ramakrishnan Rengappa
Objective: To highlight various modifcations associated with
trabeculectomy and their outcomes.
Summary of Content: Trabeculectomy, the guarded flteration surgery,
has been a gold standard in glaucoma surgery for the last 5-6 decades.
If performed properly it helps to lower intraocular pressure without
any adverse efects. Complications of trabeculectomy occur even in
the hands of the expert. To enhance success rates additional modifca-
tions are in vogue. These modifcations have not caught on uniformly
amongst the practising ophthalmologist. In this video instruction
course we describe the various modifcations (preparation and use of
cytocidal and cytotoxic antimetabolites, Type 2 ologen collagen matrix
implant, various releasable suture techniques and the newer express
shunt) along with tips for safe surgery for optimal outcome of
trabeculectomy.
Target Audience: Practicing ophthalmologist, Residents
Course Level: Advanced.
Pediatric Cataract Surgery: Conquering the Challenge
Sat 18 Feb Capital Suite 6 CO-PED-SA 201 10:30 - 12:00
Presenters: Jagat Ram, Ken Nischal, Jaspreet Sukhija, Sudarshan Khokhar
Objective: To educate and discuss the challenges in the pediatric cataract
management.
Summary of Content: Major challenges associated with pediatric cataract surgery
in growing eyes are selection of optimal surgical technique, management of
aphakia, handling of technically difcult surgery, intraocular lens (IOL) power
calculation and management of postoperative complications.
Refned and perfected surgical techniques, availability of suitable IOL designs as
well as understanding the growth and refractive changes in children have made
IOL implantation safe modality in the management of pediatric cataract. Issues of
concern are the optimal age for IOL implantation, whether IOL implantation should
be as primary or a secondary, what IOL power to choose, target postoperative
refractive status. Latest trends in surgical techniques and the importance of
choosing the optimal means of optical rehabilitation will be discussed.

the role of spectral domain OCT as an indispensable tool in assessment
of the vitreoretinal interface disorders including macular holes, lamellar
macular holes, epimacular membranes, vitreoretinal traction syndrome,
myopic traction maculopathy and diabetic macular edema.
Using plenty of OCT pictures, the instructors will demonstrate how high
resolution spectral domain OCT can provide a new insights regarding
the pathogenesis, staging and inter-relation between these vitreoreti-
nal disorders.

identifed concepts. From an absolutely practical stand point this Course
will deal with, in a totally interactive panel discussion format, the dilemmas
faced by a practicing Ophthalmologist. Some of the subjects covered will
include:
Pre-operative medications in Cataract Surgery; Pain during surgery under
topical anaesthesia; Managing an errant capsulorhexis, Wound burn,
descemets membrane detachment; Early Intra op. clues for Posterior
Capsular rupture and performing an ideal anterior vitrectomy; How long to
observe a piece of posteriorly displaced lens matter; How to explant an
IOL; Dissatisifed multifocal IOL patients. Spherical aberration and need to
eliminate/reduce it; How to manage post cataract surgery refractive
surprise? IOL of choice in Post keratorefractive patient; Laser bioptics and

Neovascular Glaucoma - The Retina and Glaucoma Viewpoints
Sat 18 Feb Capital Suite 4CO-GLA-SA 224 13:30 - 15:00
Presenters: Seshadri Saikumar, Anantharaman Giridhar, Vijaya Lingam, Gowri Murthy
Neovascular Glaucoma still remains a difcult and challenging
condition in Ophthalmology. The last few years has witnessed new
modalities in the diagnosis and management of Neovascular
Glaucoma (NVG), and thereby help clinicians salvage useful vision in
some of these eyes. Through didactic lectures and video flms, this
course will present diagnostic and management algorithms which will
efectively combine the retina and glaucoma perspectives in the
management of this challenging clinical entity. The panel discussion
with case scenarios will help evolve a working algorithm for the
management of NVG. At the end of the course, the participants will
have a working knowledge as to how to tackle patients with
Neovascular glaucoma.
This is an intermediate level course targeted at glaucoma and Retina
specialists

An Instructional Course on Sutureless Vitrectomy
Course Objective
Sat 18 Feb Capital Suite 8CO-RET-SA 226 13:30 - 15:00
Presenter: Wael Abdelghani
Objective: This course is designed to give ophthalmologists an
overview of Sutureless Vitrectomy.
Summary of Content: The course will provide an overview of Pars
Plana Vitrectomy. It will then introduce sutureless 25 & 23 Gauge
Vitrectomy. Indications for use of 25 & 23 G vitrectomy will be
discussed and the techniques will be described with the aid of video
presentations. Advantages and limitations of 25 & 23 G vitrectomy
will also be reviewed, highlighting the most commonly encountered
complications. Illustrations and video presentations will be used
throughout the course to clarify the material, describe the technique
and give practicing doctors an opportunity to test their understand-
ing of the material. Target Audience: This course is meant to beneft
Vitreo-Retinal surgeons who already have some experience with
vitrectomy.
Vitreo-Retinal surgeons completing this course should be able to:
Describe the technique of sutureless 25 & 23 G Vitrectomy
Enumerate the indications of sutureless 25 & 23 G Vitrectomy
Discuss advantages and limitations of 25 & 23 G vitrectomy.
Vitreo-retinal specialists will have the opportunity to discuss and
compare this modern approach to other techniques that were
previously used.

Retinoblastoma - They Live and See!
Sat 18 Feb Capital Suite 9 CO-ONC-SA 227 13:30 - 15:00
Presenters: Santosh Honavar, Nabil Taresh, Arun Singh, Jerry Shields
Objective: To enable the participant to understand and incorporate into practice
recent developments in the diagnosis and management of retinoblastoma.
Summary of Content: Recent advances in the diagnosis and management of
retinoblastoma have signifcantly contributed to improved success in patient
survival, eye salvage, and optimal vision salvage. The new staging and grouping
systems are now clinically validated and well accepted. Modern management
strategies such as transpupillary thermotherapy, plaque brachytherapy,
chemoreduction and periocular chemotherapy have been efective in
improving eye and vision salvage. Selective intra-arterial chemotherapy has
shown promise and is an existing new development. Minimal manipulation
enucleation has been further optimized to enable harvesting a long optic nerve
stump and provide excellent cosmetic outcome. Adjuvant therapy in children
with histopathologic high-risk characteristics identifed following enucleation
has reduced the risk of systemic metastasis. A multimodal protocol has been
efective in salvaging patients with orbital retinoblastoma. Genetic studies now
help in prenatal diagnosis and screening of siblings. The course will aim to
highlight the practical aspects in the current standard of care for retinoblastoma
and logically analyze recent developments.
Target Audience: General Ophthalmologists, Ocular Oncologists and Retina
Specialists

Summary of Content: Corneal transplantation surgery has witnessed
revolutionary change over the past decade. Anterior and posterior
lamellar surgical procedures have evolved which help selectively
replace dysfunctional layers of the cornea to restore structure and
function with improved eyesight. Full thickness keratoplasty is no
longer the frst choice of surgical procedure for certain corneal
disorders. This video based course will cover all aspects of lamellar
corneal surgery, right from donor tissue preparation, step by step
approach of surgical procedures, managing complications, and surgery
in difcult situations. Course attendees will have an overview of both
anterior and posterior lamellar corneal surgical procedures, and will be
able to apply the knowledge gained in their clinical practice. Corneal
surgeons will be able to gain insight into details of surgical technique
which will help them make a smooth transition from full thickness
corneal transplantation surgery to lamellar corneal procedures.

Low Vision Basics
Sat 18 Feb Capital Suite 9 CO-LOW-SA 251 15:30 - 17:00
Presenter: Sanjiv Desai
This is a basic level instruction course for ophthalmologists, which
focuses on imparting appropriate skills in clinical low vision. The
objective of the course is to impart skills in assessing low vision cases in
the clinic and how to dispense low vision aids [LVA]. It begins by
defning low vision and describing the common ophthalmic conditions
leading to low vision. Then the cardinal principles of treating low vision
are described, followed by exploring various types of optical and
non-optical low vision aids [LVA] available in the market to enhance
visual performance, their optics, their advantages and disadvantages
and how to use them. Finally the course is wound up by discussing how
to assess a low vision patient in the clinic and how to dispense low
vision aids. At the end of the course, participants will become profcient
in identifying and treating low vision cases in their day-to-day practice,
thus, integrating low vision care into their clinical practice.

Comprehensive Approach to Boston KPro Type I
Keratoprosthesis Surgery
Sun 19 Feb Capital Suite 4 CO-COR-SU 272 08:30 - 10:00
Presenters: Jose de la Cruz, Soledad Cortina, Jose Guell, Victor Perez, Roberto Pineda
With the emerging success of the Boston Type I keratoprostheses as an
alternative to multiple failed corneal transplants, there is a renewed
interest in adequate patient selection, surgical techniques, as well as
proper postoperative management. Successful outcomes require a unique
interaction between the prosthesis and its surrounding environment. This
course aims to instruct the surgeon in understanding the basic concepts of
Boston Keratoprosthesis Type I implantation, patient selection, and
adequate postoperative management. The course will also present
established as well as novel methods on how to successfully approach
surgery of the Boston Keratoprosthesis type I in diferent clinical environ-
ments or in academic centers. The diferent models as well as the
indications for Boston Keratoprosthesis Type I will be reviewed and the
specifc strategies will be discussed for successful long term retention. By
the end of the course the participant will be able to identify adequate
candidates for Boston Keratoprosthesis implantation, understand surgical
approaches and be able to manage diferent situations after keratopros-
thesis implantation.
The courses target audience will be corneal subspecialists with interest in
expanding their alternatives to multiple failed transplants. The Educational
level of this course will be intermediate.

Presenters: Giridhar Anantharam, Lingam Gopal, Rajvardhan Azad, Alay Banker
Vitreous surgery for macular holes has evolved over the years. Various
factors are responsible for achieving macular hole closure. Through
didactic lectures and video presentations, the course will highlight key
points that have been found to be useful in achieving better surgical
results. The impoprtance of case selection, atromatic membrane peeling
techniques, role of tamponade and when to re-operate on failed macular
holes will be discussed. At the end of the course the participant should be
able to carry home few pearls that will improve their skills in operating
eyes with macular holes.
The target audience includes retina specialists and those undergoing
training in vitreoretinal surgery.

Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery:
Technique and Management of Complications
19th February 2012 Capital Suite 2 CO-CAT-SU 296 10:30 - 12:00
Presenters: Arif Adenwala, Mahesh Dalvi, Tasneem Parkar
Objective: To explain to the target audience the technique of the Manual
Small Incision Cataract Surgery and its importance during transition from
Conventional Cataract Surgery to Phacoemulsifcation.
Summary of Content: Manual small incision cataract surgery (SICS) ofers
similar advantages of Phacoemulsifcation with the merits of
wider applicability, better safety, a shorter learning curve and lower cost. It
can be performed in almost all types of cataracts. Transition to phacoemul-
sifcation is easier if one has mastered manual SICS, as familiarity of steps
common to both technique helps reduce the incidence of complications.
The Important steps of making sclerocorneal pocket tunnel incision,
delivery of nucleus in to the anterior chamber and wound, implantation of
lens and wound closure would be discussed.
The diferent methods of nucleus delivery out of the AC by hydro-
expression, visco-expression, vectis assisted delivery, or the fsh-hook
technique would be explained.
An open minded approach and perseverance will ensure smooth learning
and eventual mastery.
Management and Prevention of Complications, occurring at each step of
surgery would be discussed.

End-stage Glaucoma: Challenges of Clinical Assessment, Surgical
versus Medical Treatment, and Visual Prognosis
18th February 2012 Capital Suite 15 CO-GLA-SU 301 10:30 - 12:00

Objectives: The course aims to instruct attendees about how to deal with a
patient with end-stage glaucoma in terms of clinical assessment of
diagnostic and progression parameters and various modalities of
treatment of such patient and the impact of treatment and disease
progression on visual prognosis.
Summary of Content: The course will discuss an important topic that
carries a major challenge in many regions of the world where a plenty of
patients are seen for the frst time with a severe form of glaucoma
(end-stage). What are the criteria of defning advanced to end-stage
glaucoma, what further investigations should be performed for these
patients, evaluation of progression rates and continued visual loss.
Evaluation and visibility of medical treatment with its recent advances will
be addressed and adherence to treatment plan and follow-up schedule.
Surgical treatment of these patients will be discussed in details with
various techniques to achieve a very low target pressure, surgical hazards,
wipe out phenomenon, and long-term glaucoma stability versus
continued progression and visual loss in this highly advanced disease.

Presenter: Kevin Miller
Objective: This course will provide a comprehensive overview of the
artifcial devices available from Morcher, Ophtec, and HumanOptics to
reduce light and glare sensitivity in congenital and acquired aniridia. At
the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to describe the
artifcial irises that are available commercially. They will understand the
directions for use associated with each device. They will know which
devices are suitable for capsular bag implantation and which are suitable
for sulcus implantation with or without suture fxation. They will be able to
discuss how ocular comorbidities afect the choice of artifcial iris to
implant. They will also be able to describe common intraoperative
problems and their solutions.
Summary of Content: The course will consist of a series of lectures covering
the various devices. Lectures will be supplemented by surgical video and
followed by discussion and opportunity for audience questions and
comments. The course is intended to focus on the how to so that
participants can take the information learned back to their practices and
immediately begin applying it.
Target Audience: General ophthalmologists and subspecialists
Educational Level: Intermediate.

Controversies in Management of Ocular Trauma
Sun 19 Feb Capital Suite 6 13:30 - 15:00
Objectives: Despite steady advances in surgical instrumentation and
technique, ophthalmic trauma continues to be a leading cause of visual
loss worldwide. Controversy persists over the optimal management of the
injured eye. Debate persists over surgical repair of severely traumatized
eyes with no light perception, use of prophylactic antibiotics either
systemic or intracameral or intravitreal, prophylactic cryopexy, and
prophylactic scleral buckling. The role and timing of vitrectomy surgery in
severe ocular trauma also remain topics of considerable debate, as does
the role of vitrectomy in the management of magnetic intraocular foreign
bodies. Similarly timing and optimal management of traumatic cataract
with intraocular lens implantation and corneal scar management is also
practice diferently by diferent surgeons across the world. Management of
orbital fractures and lid and adnexal trauma is also area of considerable
debate. Role of intravenous methylprednisolone and optic canal
decompression in traumatic optic neuropathy is still controversial.
Pediatric ocular trauma management also involves lot of unresolved
debates.
Summary of Content: Each of these issues will be discussed, with particular
emphasis on conficting views presented in the relevant literature along
with critical appraisal of existing international ocular trauma classifcation.
Target Audience: Subspecialists
Course Level: Advanced.
Amblyopia Treatment: Review and New Advances
Sun 19 Feb Capital Suite 8 CO-STR-SU 324 13:30 - 15:00
Presenter: Shucri Shawaf
Objective: To review the diferent modalities of amblyopia treatment and
conclude by putting together a clear approach for the treatment of
amblyopia.
Summary of Content: To review the diferent modalities of amblyopia
treatment and how they evolved through time, go over the major
amblyopia trials (including the Amblyopia Treatment Studies), present the
new advances (including the new software programs for the treatment of
amblyopia, one of which got the FDA approval), pin point some pitfalls to
avoid. This will include among others, the importance of a full exam to rule
out any organic cause, the parameters to prescribe eyeglasses in children,
when to start penalization (atropine versus patching), the amount of
patching required, how to avoid the social and psychological stigma in
children, stress on follow-ups for maintenance treatment. The attendees
should be able by the end of this course to deal with any case of amblyo-
pia, use the diferent modalities of amblyopia treatment.
Target Audience: General ophthalmologists
Education Level: Intermediate.

Sun 19 Feb Capital Suite 6 15:30 - 17:00
Presenters: Chris Kalogeropoulos, Khalid Tabbara, Ilknur Tugal, Sofa Androudi,
Alexander Charonis
Objective: The aim of the course is to emphasize the need and the
methods for diagnostic exploration and management with regard to
underlying systemic disease in cases of uveitis (and scleritis), where the
frst symptoms and signs of the disease presence concern the eye alone.
Summary of Content: The topics that will be presented and discussed in
the course include cases of scleritis, tuberculous and syphilitic uveitis,
Behcet disease, uveitis in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoid uveitis and
retinal/choroidal vasculitis in systemic lupus erythematosus. Characteristic
cases, avoiding extremely easy or extremely uncommon ones, which
would be even though dismissed diagnostically, will be presented. In the
end, taking also into consideration the experience resulting from the
literature, guidelines are proposed based on analysis of the data in order to
extrapolate in similar cases in the future.

Sun 19 Feb Capital Suite 15
FR-RET-SU 349 CO-GLA-SU 350
15:30 - 17:00
Presenters: Vijaya Lingam, Shantha Balekudaru
Objective: To discuss the management options available for the
treatment of refractory glaucomas through the presentation of
representative difcult cases.
Summary of Content: Management of intractable glaucomas such as
neovascular glaucoma, glaucoma following vitreo-retinal surgery,
glaucoma following penetrating keratoplasty, malignant glaucoma
as well as glaucoma associated with keratoprostheses remains a
challenge to the glaucoma surgeon. Management of these problems
has shifted from the use of cyclodestructive procedures, to the use of
drainage devices which is the current treatment of choice in most
situations.
We plan to present 4 representative case scenarios of the various
subtypes of refractory glaucomas and discuss the problems in
diagnosis, surgical treatment and expected complications in each
case.
Target Audience: Glaucoma sub specialists
Level of Course: Intermediate.

Education Without Borders: The Future for Young Ophthalmologists
Mon 20 Feb Capital Suite 4 CO-EDU-MO 371 08:30 - 10:00
Presenters: Anthony Khawaja, Manal Taryam, Sanjay Kedhar
Objective: To provide an engaging platform for discussion of important
international education issues with a young ophthalmologist audience.
Target Audience/educational level: Young Ophthalmologists
This symposium/course has been developed jointly by the YO (young
ophthalmologist) committees of MEACO, SOE and AAO. The theme for the
session is education, the issues young ophthalmologists across the
globalising world are now facing, and how best to make the most of
opportunities, and face challenges.
The session will take the form of a chat-show, hosted by a MEACO
representative, and speakers will be the guests on the chat-show. Each
topic will be addressed primarily using a question and answer session.
This will provide an entertaining and engaging format to present esoteric
but important issues to a young audience.
The session topics will be:
Setting up residency programmes in the Middle East - The Arab Board
Opportunities and resources available for establishing residency
programmes
European Board of Ophthalmology - Europe harmonising ophthalmic
education
Arranging a fellowship abroad - pearls and pitfalls
Surgical training - how do we set the standards?

Childhood Proptosis: Evaluation and Management
Mon 20 Feb Capital Suite 6 CO-PED-MO 372 08:30 - 10:00
Presenters: Imtiaz Chaudhry, Arif Khan, Adel Alsuhaibani, Yonca Arat
Objective: To familiarize the attendee with common benign and malignant
processes that can afect the orbit in children with an emphasis on the
systematic and practical approach for the work-up and treatment of
proptosis.
Summary of Content: Proptosis describes eye prominence due to space
occupying orbital lesions. Proptosis in children is a hallmark of orbital
diseases requiring thoughtful investigation. While acquired lesions may
present at the end of frst decade of life, congenital lesions usually present
early in life. Some of the common causes of proptosis in children include
cystic lesions, orbital cellulitis and pseudotumor, less common are optic
nerve gliomas and meningiomas. Rhabdomyosarcoma can present with
acute proptosis. Secondary orbital processes invade the orbit from
adjacent structures. Distant metastases include neuroblastoma and
Ewing's sarcoma. Although many orbital processes can be diagnosed by
history, examination and imaging studies, ultimate diagnosis rests upon
pathological diagnoses. The course will cover illustrative clinical cases that
may include, the most common benign, malignant and metatstatic
processes faced by general as well as subspecialists encountring such
patients.
Target Audience: General ophthalmologists and subspecialists
Educational Level: Beginning, intermediate.
Optimizing the Outcome with Posterior Chamber Phakic IOL ( ICL)
Implantation for Refractive Errors with Thin Cornea
Mon 20 Feb Capital Suite 8 CO-REF-MO 373 08:30 - 10:00
Presenters: Satyamyrthy Kodur, Ramamurthy D, Amar Agarwal, Ramesh Gampa
Synopsis: In all those patients who are not suitable for Lasik or surface
ablation due to thin cornea various options such as phakic IOL implanta-
tion and refractive lens exchange are available. Implantation of collamar
lens in the posterior chamber is an ideal and easier choice in these
patients. This course is aimed at simplifying the Implantable Contact Lens
(ICL) implantation and optimizing the outcome and it also deals with
material and design of ICL , indications, contra indications & patient
selection ,pre operative preparation, surgical technique of implanting
spherical and toric ICL and ICL complications.

Objective: At the conclusion of the course, the attendee will have a
comprehensive knowledge of ICL implantation which will provide the
refractive surgeon confdence to adopt the technique in practice.
Target Audience: Subspecialists
Educational Level: Advanced.

Management of Complex Strabismus Situations
Mon 20 Feb Capital Suite 8 CO-STR-MO 416 13:30 - 15:00
Presenters: Ramakrishnan, Venkateshwar Rao Bhoompally, Rajesh P, Sandra Ganeshrabu
Objective: Strabismus surgery, though appears simple and straightforward,
is not so in all situations. There are some complex situations in strabismus
where surgical plans becomes really challenging. This symposium will
discuss few of such complex scenarios.

Summary of Contents: Management of Consecutive deviations and
resurgeries in strabismus is really challenging. The exact plan and outcome
depends on various factors like previous surgical procedures done,
adhesions etc. This discussion will be followed by the talk on Transposition
Procedures. Muscle transposition is indicated in cases like Double Elevator
Palsy, Nerve palsies etc. The surgical plan, chances of post operative
anterior segment Ischemia etc has to be kept in mind. Vessel sparing
procedures will also be discussed in this context. Many of these complex
strabismus do better with adjustable suture technique and the next talk
will focus on this. Vertical, restrictive and pattern strabismus needs special
mention and we will discuss management issues in the above situations
with case examples.
Target Audience: Subspecialists
Educational Level: Intermediate
Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy - All You Need to Know!
Mon 20 Feb Capital Suite 6 CO-RET-MO 415 13:30 - 15:00
Presenters: Ian Wong, Wico Lai, David Wong
Objectives: To highlight the clinical features, diagnostic criteria, treatment
strategies, and future developments in polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy
(PCV).
Summary of Content: PCV is characterized by recurrent subretinal pigment
epithelial hemorrhages. Before indocyanine-green angiography (ICG)
imaging was popular, PCV was sometimes misdiagnosed as neovascular
age-related macular degeneration (AMD). With the advent of imaging
modalities and deeper understandings of the disease, PCV is now
recognized as a separate entity, with its own unique profle of clinical
manifestations. Treatment strategy towards PCV has been revolutionized
by recent clinical trials using combination therapy with ranibizumab and
verteporfn. Currently, signifcant diferences exist between treatment for
PCV and neovascular AMD. There is a clear need in distinguishing PCV from
neovascular AMD.
Clinical photos, ICG fndings, and optical coherence tomography scans will
be used to illustrate real cases. Small quiz towards end of course will help
audience fortify knowledge acquired.
At the conclusion of this course, the audience will be able to distinguish a
case of PCV, from a case of neovascular AMD. They will know how to
formulate treatment strategies for a new case of PCV, and the most
up-to-date evidences involved.
Target Audience: Subspecialists
Educational Level: Advanced
