The purpose of the MSEPS 2017 Annual Meeting is to provide continuing medical education for new approaches to the diagnosis, treatment and surgery for ophthalmic conditions. The program is to present ophthalmologists with the highest quality lifelong learning opportunities that promote positive change in physician performance or competence, thus enabling such physicians to maintain or improve the knowledge, skills and professional performance needed to provide the best possible eye care for their patients.
