Virtual Conference: Paediatric Ophthalmology Moving Forward in 2022. This conference taking place on April 22, 2022 honours the late Dr. Jack S. Crawford, former Ophthalmologists-in-Chief for the Hospital for Sick Children, whose career was dedicated to advancing the specialty of paediatric ophthalmology and the care of children’s eye problems.

The 32nd Annual Jack Crawford Day will focus on the theme “Paediatric Ophthalmology Moving Forward in 2022.” The day will include topics relevant to both pediatric and general eye specialists including recent advances in retinoblastoma, teaching strabismus to the next generation, amblyopia treatment, orbital disease in children, ocular genetics for paediatric ophthalmologists, case-based presentation, and a few more.

We welcome international guest speakers Dr. Francis Munier and Dr. Ramesh Kekunnaya.

The overall goal of this program is to address issues seen in a paediatric ophthalmology and strabismus practice. The audience will be presented with new concepts that may change and optimize management that affect our patients and their families.

At the conclusion of the meeting the attendee will: 

  • Understand the new concepts that are likely to fill the knowledge gap in the management of strabismus.
  • Gain knowledge on the recent advances in the diagnosis and management of retinoblastoma.
  • Provide current concepts and updates related to pediatric retinal diseases, including retinopathy of prematurity and genetic disorders.
  • Provide a better understanding of pediatric orbital and adnexal disease.
