Shama Essa, O.D.

Our very own, Dr. Shama Essa, OD, will be gracing the stage of the Combined Ophthalmic Symposium which is presented and sponsored by the Advanced Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) this upcoming weekend in Austin and we are so excited for her to share her knowledge with the audience of eye care physicians and practitioners.

The main annual ASCRS event received 6,000 visitors this year in May, and that audience was made up of US and Internationally-based corneal specialists, ophthalmologists, and optometrists looking to provide better care for their patients.

Who better than Dr. Essa, who sees so many incredible conditions in our office and works closely with all of our doctors to ensure the best outcomes with LASIK, Cataract Surgery, Premium lenses in cataract surgery, contact lenses and glasses to share her pearls of wisdom and answer questions at the Combined Symposium?!

Dr. Essa will be lecturing on 3 topics on Saturday, August 12:

The New Refractive Surgery: Or is it? This course will review various methods of refractive surgery and highlight some of the latest technologies available to patients. Innovations in the refractive surgery arena will be discussed, as well as expectations and limitations of these procedures.

Practical Pearls in Integrated Care in Glaucoma – This course will review the important role of communication between ophthalmologists and optometrists while managing glaucoma. Available technologies and advanced micro-invasive surgical methods for the treatment of glaucoma will be discussed, as well as case presentations displaying the relationship between OD and MD in co-managed care.

Anterior Segment Grand Rounds – This course will highlight challenging case presentations of both emergency patient encounters as well as interesting refractive patient encounters to provide participants with pertinent information and strategies in treating urgent care as well as peri-surgical patients.
