CODET Wins Best Paper of the Session at ASCRS 2022 for Glaucoma Service

CODET Vision Institute ophthalmologists presented more than 10 papers at the ASCRS 2022 conference and won Best Paper of the Session.

Every year, CODET’s ophthalmologists attend the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) annual congress, which took place from April 22-26, in Washington D.C.

This year, CODET presented more than 10 papers. The publication on the Glaucoma Service at CODET was selected as the Best Paper of the Session (BPOS).

The paper, entitled Outcomes of Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery in Patients with Prior Glaucoma, was presented by Dr. Andrea Montero, a graduate ophthalmologist from the fellowship in Glaucoma at CODET, and her professor, Dr. Gabriela Avila, Director of the Glaucoma Service. The research presented suggests that FLACS does not have a negative impact on healthy eyes or glaucoma in the Ganglionar Cels layer.
