Taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the ASCRS•ASOA Symposium & Congress (May 5–9, 2017) will be the largest U.S. meeting that integrates a scientific program dedicated to the needs of the anterior segment specialist with the leading practice management program for comprehensive ophthalmology and subspecialties. The 2017 ASCRS•ASOA Symposium & Congress will be a joint meeting with the Asia-Pacific Association of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons.
The meeting will include quality education for clinical staff as well through the Technicians & Nurses Program, May 6–8, 2017, which will feature T&N Tech Talks on Friday afternoon. The meeting will also offer special programming and events for Young Eye Surgeons (YES)—residents and fellows and surgeons one to five years in practice.
