Challenging times for ophthalmologists in San Francisco

EuroTimes will be reporting from the 2009 joint meeting of AAO/PAAO in San Francisco from Friday October 23 to Tuesday October 27.

As you can see from our picture (taken outside the Moscone Convention Centre on the corner of Howard and 3rd) the sun is splitting the stones but that won't deter delegates from attending a packed schedule of lectures and instructional courses.

Meeting highlights will be reported in the December/January and February issues of the magazine and also on our website at in our Breaking News section.

This has been a difficult time for some ophthalmologists who are facing increasing pressure in the face of the global economic recession.

One of the highlights of this year's AAO/PAAO session will be the Practice Management programme which will help advise doctors, practice managers and other practice partners on how they can tackle some of the financial challenges they are facing and will continue to face in the future.

As always, however, the major focus will be on how ophthalmologists can improve their clinical services and patient care and this meeting promises to offer many new insights into new techniques and new technologies.
