ASCRS Winter Break set for 2020 in Utah

by Ellen Stodola EyeWorld Editorial Co-Director

The Surgical Summit has been rebranded as ASCRS Winter Break

The ASCRS Winter Break meeting, formerly known as the EyeWorld Surgical Summit, will take place in Deer Valley from January 30–February 1, 2020. Back again at the Chateaux Deer Valley in Park City, Utah, the meeting program features many experts in the field of ophthalmology discussing a wide variety of cataract, refractive, and anterior segment surgery topics.
Nicole Fram, MD, one of the program chairs of Winter Break, said this meeting is her favorite meeting of the year. “It’s an intimate meeting designed for faculty/attendee interaction, a place to see the latest technology in action and video sessions that highlight our triumphs and vulnerabilities as surgeons,” she said.
This year’s program will include sessions running for the duration of the morning on all three days, with late afternoon/evening interactive video sessions on Thursday and Friday. Challenges and controversies in cataract surgery will be a major focus of Thursday’s program, and other sessions throughout the meeting will touch on glaucoma, meeting expectations in refractive cataract surgery, corneal and ocular surface disease, some of the basics and “not-so-basics” of cataract surgery, and a legislative update. This year’s Crandall Lecture will be given by James Davison, MD.
During the breaks in programming, there are also many activities to enjoy in the area. “Families are welcome, as there is designated time for skiing or simply enjoying the town,” Dr. Fram added.
Registration for the meeting is open. Visit for registration and other information about the upcoming meeting. “Don’t miss out [on] one of the best meetings of the year,” Dr. Fram said.
