"The Sunday Summit" on Sunday morning will also feature a specific cornea section in its hour- long discussion of the future direc- tion of anterior segment surgery. Donald T.H. Tan, FRCOphth, Singapore, will specifically address t he cornea topic. A symposium sponsored by the Cornea Society will explore "What's New in the Management of Corneal Ectasias." This session will take place from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. and will discuss topics such as topographic diagnosis of corneal ectasia and lens implantation in corneal ectasia. T here will also be a discussion of treatment controversies, specifically corneal crosslinking and DALK. From 1:00 to 2:30 p.m., a session will focus on cornea topics in dry eye management. Christopher Starr, MD, New York, will present on the results from the 2013 ASCRS Clinical Survey. Other topics include thermal pulsation treatment, dye-enhanced Argon laser punctum stenosis for treat- ment, and the prevalence of dry eye symptoms vs. dry eye disease in general and refractive surgery populations. "Pardon the Ophthalmology: Hot Topics in Cornea and External D isease" will take place from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. and is sponsored by the ASCRS Cornea Clinical Committee. The symposium will feature modera- tors and panelists reviewing corneal cases and discussing the manage- ment and treatment options. Monday, April 28 A symposium from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. will again look at corneal collagen crosslinking. Moderated by Terry K im, MD, Durham, N.C., and Doyle Stulting, MD, PhD, Atlanta, it will cover a variety of issues pertaining to the hot topic, including treat- ment methods, complications, clinical trials, and regulatory issues. A section on intraocular surgery, "Phaco Techniques and Technology" from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m., will address cornea topics. These include the "change of corneal coma aberration depending on incisional location in cataract surgery" and the "evalua- tion of sutures for wound closure of clear corneal incisions with wound l eaks." Cornea topics such as ptery- gium, adhesives, and medications will be addressed from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. Specific issues will include different medications and their efficacy and effectiveness. The ASCRS Innovators Session from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. will touch o n the role of corneal collagen crosslinking for the management of infectious keratitis with a section from Farhad Hafezi, MD, PhD, Geneva, Switzerland. A symposium on innovations in corneal transplantation around the world will incorporate the 2014 Richard L. Lindstrom, MD, Lecture from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. The sympo- sium will include discussions on innovations in limbal stem cell transplantation, lamellar kerato- plasty, endothelial keratoplasty, and femtosecond laser-assisted kerato- plasty. The Richard L. Lindstrom, MD, Lecture will be given by Shigeru Kinoshita, MD, PhD, Kyoto, Japan, on "Stem Cell Therapy for Corneal Endothelial Disease." Tuesday, April 29 Wrapping up the annual meeting, symposia and sessions on the final day will feature topics pertaining specifically to the cornea. A session on DSEK, DMEK and DALK will take place from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m., and will look at some of the outcomes of these types of procedures. Also occurring from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. is a session on endothelial cell count and corneal anatomy. The pathology and biomechan- ics of the cornea will be discussed from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Topics to be explored include "Corneal Biomechanical Properties in Keratoconic, Myopic, and Hyperopic Eyes as Measured with Scheimpflug-Based Tonometer." Finally, "Hot off the Press" will conclude the annual meeting and will be held from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m., addressing a number of different topics. EW IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR CENTURION® VISION SYSTEM CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts this device to sale by, or on the order of, a physician. A s part of a properly maintained surgical environment, it is recommended that a backup IOL Injector be made available in the event the AutoSert® IOL Injector Handpiece does not perform as expected. INDICATION: The CENTURION® Vision System is indicated f or emulsification, separation, irrigation, and aspiration of cataracts, residual cortical material and lens epithelial cells, vitreous aspiration and cutting associated with anterior vitrectomy, bipolar coagulation, and i ntraocular lens injection. The AutoSert® IOL Injector Handpiece is intended to deliver qualified AcrySof® intraocular lenses into the eye following cataract removal. The AutoSert® IOL Injector Handpiece achieves the functionality of injection of intraocular lenses. The AutoSert® IOL Injector Handpiece is indicated for use with the AcrySof® lenses SN6OWF, SN6AD1, SN6AT3 through SN6AT9, as well as approved AcrySof® lenses that are specifically indicated for use with this inserter, as indicated in the approved labeling of those lenses. WARNINGS: Appropriate use of CENTURION® Vision System parameters and accessories is important for successful procedures. Use of low vacuum limits, low flow rates, low bottle heights, high power settings, extended power usage, power usage during occlusion conditions (beeping tones), failure to sufficiently aspirate viscoelastic prior to using power, excessively tight incisions, and combinations of the above actions may result in significant temperature increases at incision site and inside the eye, and lead to severe thermal eye tissue damage. Good clinical practice dictates the testing for adequate irrigation and aspiration flow prior to entering the eye. Ensure that tubings are not occluded or pinched during any phase of operation. The consumables used in conjunction with ALCON® instrument products constitute a complete surgical system. Use of consumables and handpieces other than those manufactured by Alcon may affect system performance and create potential hazards. AEs/COMPLICATIONS: Inadvertent actuation of Prime or Tune while a handpiece is in the eye can create a hazardous condition that may result in patient injury. During any ultrasonic procedure, metal particles may result from inadvertent touching of the ultrasonic tip with a second instrument. Another potential source of metal particles resulting from any ultrasonic handpiece may be the result of ultrasonic energy causing micro abrasion of the ultrasonic tip. ATTENTION: Refer to the Directions for Use and Operator's Manual for a complete listing of indications, warnings, cautions and notes. © 2013 Novartis 9/13 CNT13017JAD Abe and Louie's 793 Boylston Street 617-536-6300 www.abeandlouies.com Cuisine: American Steakhouse Angela's Café 131 Lexington Street 617-567-4972 www.angelascafeboston.com Cuisine: Mexican erbaluce 69 Church Street 617-426-6969 www.erbaluce-boston.com Cuisine: Italian Hamersley's Bistro 553 Tremont Street 617-423-2700 www.hamersleysbistro.com Cuisine: New England rustic Neptune Oyster 63 Salem Street 617-742-3474 www.neptuneoyster.com Cuisine: Seafood Oishii Boston 1166 Washington Street 617-482-8868 www.oishiiboston.com Cuisine: Sushi Rino's Place 258 Saratoga Street 617-567-7412 www.rinosplace.com Cuisine: Italian Toro 1704 Washington Street 617-536-4300 toro-restaurant.com/boston Cuisine: Spanish tapas Boston dining: Quick guide 48-63 Boston Preview_EW March 2014-DL_Layout 1 3/6/14 7:28 PM Page 55
