Saturday, January 26, 2019
10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (EST)

Join your colleagues online for the Got Genes?  Case Studies of the Impact of Genetic Testing in
Pediatric Ophthalmology webinar Saturday, January 26, 2019 @ 10:00 AM Eastern Time USA.

Does your patient have a genetic eye disorder?  Pediatric ophthalmology patients present with many
conditions that may be genetic and require a workup or referral to a genetic specialist.  These conditions
include congenital/infantile nystagmus, pre-school age high myopia, poor best corrected visual acuity,
coloboma and congenital/juvenile cataracts.  This webinar will present cases encountered in pediatric
ophthalmology practice and describe the work up recommended to arrive at an accurate genetic diagnosis
with which to advise patients and parents about heritablility, treatment and clinical trials in the genetic era.

Speakers:  members of the AAPOS Genetic Eye Disease Committee:  Arlene V. Drack, MD; Alina Dumitrescu, MD;
Virginia Utz, MD; Brian Brooks, MD, PhD; Melanie Schmitt, MD; Mary Whitman, MD, PhD; Natario Couser, MD;
Wadih Zein, MD; Elise Heon, MD; Christopher Lloyd, MD.  Additional participants providing cases and data:
 Deborah Costakos, MD; Deborah Alcorn, MD; Elias Traboulsi, MD; Alex Levin, MD.
