11th Biennial Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Conference

Hosted by the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Medicine.

Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus are complex subjects. These subspecialties span across so many subjects that staying abreast of developments and optimal practice is a challenge. We meet every two years, to refresh and update our understanding and approach to the management of practical problems in the field.

This year in Vancouver we will address many issues, including Pediatric Ocular trauma, OCT in pediatric ophthalmology, Childhood onset retinal dystrophies, Duane Syndrome, Sagging Eye Syndrome and allergic eye disease.

Once again we have gathered a group of superb speakers, leaders in the fields of strabismus and pediatric ophthalmology as well as ocular genetics. Our invited guests and local faculty will share their knowledge and insights with us over this two-day conference. We strive to provide a relaxed environment fostering good fellowship and interaction, with every opportunity for lively discussion.
