Inside Optics 2017 Speaker Spotlight…

Inside Optics Welcomes Back

Dr. Navdeep Nijahawan

 Cataract Surgery: More than meets the eye

 The role of opticians will/must evolve. Having a deep knowledge of cataract surgery is essential for opticians to professionally counsel and provide devices to their patients. With an aging population, opticians will be turned to for advice and information more than ever before.

Navdeep Nijhawan MD, FRCSC, DABOA will discuss the history, present state and future of cataract surgery and what role opticians play in ensuring that patients receive the best visual outcome.  Included in this discussion are phacoemulsification, femtolaser cataract surgery and the intraocular lenses available to correct refractive errors including astigmatism and presbyopia.
