The Annual Glaucoma Symposium is a half-day program designed to provide ophthalmologists with an update on new glaucoma algorithms, surgical and laser techniques, and glaucoma medications. Past presenters have included special guest speakers, faculty from University of California at San Francisco, California Pacific Medical Center, and GREG board members.
