Wednesday, October 23 - 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Strabismus treatment is not only for kids!

Clinical pearls for non-surgical and surgical management and pre- and post-surgical considerations for patients with adult strabismus will be provided. Speakers are Susan Cotter, OD, MS, FAAO, David Stager Sr., MD, Jonathan M. Holmes, MD, and Richard London, MS, OD, FAAO.
