On Saturday, December 10, the Hamilton Eye Institute convened its 15th annual clinical update meeting. At this event, UT HEI faculty and honored guests share presentations on the latest discoveries, techniques, and scientific data from their areas of ophthalmic subspecialty with an audience of local and regional ophthalmologists. We were particularly gratified to welcome our illustrious visiting speakers for this year's event. Serving as this year's Ira Lee Arnold Distinguished Visiting Professor was Peter A. Netland, MD, PhD, the DuPont Guerry III Professor and chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. We also proudly welcomed visiting speaker, Louise A. Mawn, MD, FACS, associate professor and director of the Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Service in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.

Among the edifying lectures, the audience was treated to a special high-definition, 3D surgery lecture by department vice-chair, James C. Fleming, MD, FACS, using the special 3D projection system that was added to the Freeman Auditorium earlier this year. The event, which was organized by Matthew W. Wilson, MD, FACS, professor of Ophthalmology and St. Jude Chair of Pediatric Oncology, was a resounding success for all who attended. We thank Drs. Netland and Mawn for their outstanding participation.
