11 UPDATE • Session III: Preparing the Ocular Surface for Cataract Surgery • Session IV: Controversies and Complications This year, Session II will also feature two new video competition sessions, both under the title "The Bad, the Ugly and the Unbearable." The audience will vote for the win- ner during the second session. "This year's Cornea Day has been completely redesigned to highlight the great advances and the significant challenges occurring in the corneal specialty today," said Francis Mah, MD, program co-chair of Cornea Day. "Video is arguably the best method for learning within our specialty, so the second session is a new exciting session on corne- al and lamellar transplant surgery with a video competition where an international panel of experts and the audience get to vote on the best advances and management of issues that can arise in the OR at any time. The idea of the entire program is for the attendee to be able to take home new ideas and techniques that can be used right away in the clinic and OR." For more details, visit www. CorneaDay.org.
