1. Not Your Average Dry Eye  (1 hr)
COPE Course ID: 64204-AS
Dry eye is a condition many see and manage on a daily basis. Most commonly, dry eye is caused by meibomian gland dysfunction, aqueous deficiency, or a combination of both. Less common etiologies may also present and often pose challenging management strategies. This lecture will review three specific ocular surface disorders and a step-wise approach to treatment: graft versus host disease, neurotrophic keratopathy, and exposure keratopathy.
2. Trauma Rounds (2 hr)
 COPE Course ID: 64203-GO (pending approval)
When ocular injury strikes, we need to be prepared. Discussion and cases will focus on traumatic ophthalmic entities: from caring for corneal abrasions and traumatic iritis to evaluating orbital fractures and assessing open globes. Appropriate management strategies, treatment guidelines, and referral patterns are discussed.

3. The Ophthalmic Emergency Department: My Experience (2 hr)
COPE Course ID: (pending submission)
This grand rounds lecture highlights a variety of unique and acute ophthalmic conditions presenting to a tertiary care ophthalmic emergency department. Discussion focuses on clinical diagnosis, management, and disease course.
