ITEDS hosted its seventh annual teaching course for comprehensive ophthalmologists and oculoplastics subspecialists at the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) in Las Vegas in November, 2015.
The focus was evaluation of thyroid eye disease using ITEDS-VISA forms, concepts of disease activity and severity, and current medical and surgical management. Case presentations were assessed by the audience with interactive dialogue with panelists.
The course was well attended by over 150 comprehensive ophthalmologists and oculoplastic surgeons from throughout the world. The AAO is the largest meeting in the world for eye surgeons.
The next course has been approved for Chicago in November, 2016. Announcements about date and venue will be made closer to the date.
