Iridex will also be sponsoring a breakfast symposium titled, “MicroPulse therapy: a choice before, in combination with, and after any other glaucoma treatment.” The symposium will be held on Sunday, May 20. A distinguished panel of four ophthalmologists will present the science behind MicroPulse technology, their clinical experience with a variety of patient profiles, and the most recent data on outcomes.

“There is a significant increase in the amount of data regarding cyclophotocoagulation with MicroPulse technology. I am excited to share with my colleagues the versatility and success I have seen with the Cyclo G6 Glaucoma Laser System,” Marc Toeteberg-Harms, MD, FEBO of Switzerland, said in a company news release. Dr. Toeteberg-Harms will be joined by Ziad Khoueir, MD, MSEd, of Lebanon, Ronald de Crom, MD of The Netherlands, and Karin Roswitha Pillunat, MD, of Germany for the 1-hour reunion that will allow for questions and answers from the attendees.
