How to Keep Eye Problems at Arms-length As You Age

What happens to our eyes as we age, and what can we do to improve our vision? At this lecture, Drs. Ken Lin and Lilangi Ediriwickrema will present on common age-related vision changes—from droopy eyelids, volume loss and wrinkles, to cataracts and glaucoma—and will discuss approaches to optimize your vision, while promoting a more youthful look. Dr. Ken Lin is a cataract and glaucoma surgeon whose research focuses on using endoscopic laser imaging and artificial intelligence to improve patient outcomes after glaucoma surgery. Dr. Lilangi Ediriwickrema specializes in oculofacial, orbital, and reconstructive surgery as well as neuro-ophthalmology.
