Carolina Eye Hosts Statewide Symposium Saturday
Carolina Eye Associates hosted more than 450 optometrists and their technicians from North Carolina Saturday at Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club in Southern Pines.
Attendees heard about the newest advances in eye surgery and treatments for eye disease during the 26th annual Robert G. Martin Ocular Disease Sym-posium.
Martin founded Carolina Eye Associates in 1977. Since then, its flagship center on Midland Road in Pinehurst has been an investigational site for numerous studies of innovative therapies for many vision-destroying diseases.
Carolina Eye surgeons presented information about interesting cases involving the unexpected outcome in cataracts, pigment dispersion and pigmentary glaucoma, macular degeneration and ophthalmic plastic surgery.
Also presenting was guest speaker Dr. John W. French, cataract and corneal specialist on unusual cases of keratitis and scleritis. French will be joining Carolina Eye Associates this summer.
Carolina Eye Associates has eight locations in southeastern North Carolina and in Cheraw, S.C.
