A Clinician-Scientists Approach to Strabismus and Amblyopia
Speaker:Dr. Sean Chen Ph.D., FRCS, FRCOphth, Consultant Ophthalmic & Oculoplastic Surgeon, The Galway Clinic & Barringtons Hospital Ireland
The diseases and clinical afflictions most important to the human population will change with time. Indeed they have already changed dramatically as we use our planet ever so differently than we did in earlier centuries. Diseases and disorders are no longer confined to specific geographic locations primarily because of globalization for example.
This means that more advanced health systems will continue to encounter clinical disorders not always inherent to the indigenous population. Migrant visitors or new residents are likely to change the spectrum of clinical pathology that is encountered.
The intention of this information session is to provide a ‘flavor’ of ophthalmic pathology currently presented for treatment in Western Europe with specific reference to Pediatric visual development and ocular motility. The content is expected to lend itself to a healthy discussion around pathophysiology, natural history, and future treatment approaches.
