December 5, 2009 -- The UT Department of Ophthalmology proudly hosted the annual Clinical Update in the Hamilton Eye Institute's Freeman Auditorium. This year, we welcomed two highly respected ophthalmologists as our guest speakers.

The first, Gary W. Abrams, MD, is chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at Wayne State University and director of the Kresge Eye Institute in Detroit, Michigan. He served as the I. Lee Arnold, MD, Distinguished Visiting Professor for this year's event, speaking on topics including proliferative vitreoretinopathy and retinal angiomatous proliferation.

Our other guest, Constance L. Fry, MD, is an associate professor of ophthalmology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Dr. Fry discussed cranial nerve seven palsy and malignant neoplasms of the eyelid. We were honored to have both Dr. Abrams and Dr. Fry as our guests.

Over a dozen other physicians and scientists representing the UT Department of Ophthalmology faculty also spoke at the clinical update meeting, sharing the latest discoveries, techniques, and scientific data from their areas of specialty with a large audience of local and regional ophthalmologists.
