Dr. Schechet presented an interesting surgical case and discussed the latest advancements in complex macular hole repair at the GBMC Ophthalmology Department’s CME evening event.
Dr. Schechet was in London for the 52nd international Retina Society meeting (http://www.retinasociety.org/). Here he is next to his research poster, in which he presented “Bevacizumab or Laser for Aggressive Posterior Retinopathy of Prematurity.” This study was recently published in a major peer-reviewed journal: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6302568
On June 26, 2019, Michael J. Elman, M.D. was the guest of Professor Eric Souied, as Dr. Elman visited the world famous Ophthalmology Department at the University of Paris, Creitil. Here Dr. Elman (right) is pictured with Dr. Souied (left), Chief of Ophthalmology, and Dr. Alexandra Miere (center). During his visit, Dr. Elman was shown ground breaking methods for analyzing OCT angiograms, which Dr. Elman will now be able to use to aid in early diagnosis of macular diseases, such as age related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and retinal vascular occlusion. Dr. Elman is among the first in the United States to use this revolutionary diagnostic technology developed by Dr. Souied and his team in France.
Michael J. Elman, M.D. was invited to serve as a moderator at the diabetes session of the biennial international retina meeting, Maculart 2019, in Paris on June 24, 2019. In addition, Dr. Elman presented the results of the “Exploratory Analysis of Change in Visual Fields Over 5 Years Among Eyes with Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy” on behalf of the DRCR Retina Network.
