Over 2.5 million Canadians currently live with cataracts; in 2031, this number is projected to reach 5 million. Each year in Canada, over 350,000 cataract surgeries are performed, making it a highly common and important procedure for ophthalmologists.
The 2019 Toronto Cataract Conference will feature internationally renowned guest speaker Dr. David F. Chang, who is a cataract surgeon and clinical professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of California, San Francisco. In 2018, Dr. Chang was named the 5th most influential ophthalmologist in the world. Dr. Chang will share his invaluable wealth of experience in an innovative case-based session.
This year’s conference will review innovations in cataract surgery and provide participants with a deeper understanding of the medico-legal consequences of cataract surgery in Canada and the management of cataract comorbidities. In addition, practical and topical issues will be covered, including discussions around new technology, challenges, and debates within the field. Participants will benefit from the interactive case-based format of the conference, as it will provide an opportunity to work through a number of challenging and controversial cases.
The Toronto Cataract Conference will take place on March 2, 2019 at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto. Office and allied medical personnel and other interested parties are encouraged to attend.
