Summer Focus Conference & Labs

Integrating evidence-based lectures and optional wet labs at the Colorado State University C. Wayne McIlwraith Translational Medicine Institute, the AAEP’s 2019 Summer Focus Conference & Labs features two tracks: Ophthalmology and Sports Medicine.

 

Ophthalmology

Ophthalmic diseases are common in the horse and many of these conditions can escalate quickly, threatening a horse’s vision and utility without prompt and appropriate veterinary care.

In the Focus Ophthalmology track, you’ll learn how to assess and treat prevalent equine eye diseases, including corneal abrasions, corneal ulcers, immune mediated keratitis, equine recurrent uveitis, nonimmune mediated uveitis, glaucoma, cataracts, retinal lesions, and ocular neoplasia. You’ll also be equipped to manage potential complications and determine when to refer a case.

Two half-day, optional wet labs will provide hands-on training in the procedures and treatments presented during lecture sessions.
