  • Recognize and describe new information about diagnosis and treatment of various categories of ophthalmic diseases, including pediatrics, cornea, glaucoma, ocular oncology and retina
  • Assess the impact of new research in the evaluation and management of ophthalmic disease
  • Recognize the risks and benefits of gene therapy in patients with inherited retinal disease
  • Recognize age-related specifics of visual function
  • Describe new mechanistic approaches to treatment of ocular diseases

MER ensures balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all our educational activities. In accordance with this policy, MER identifies relevant financial relationships with its instructors, content managers, and other individuals who are in a position to control the content of an activity. Reported relevant financial relationships are mitigated by MER to ensure that all scientific research referred to, reported, or used in a CE activity conforms to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, and analysis. MER is committed to providing learners with high-quality CE activities that promote improvements or quality in health care and not the business interest of an ineligible company.
