With an explosion of research and technologies focused on corneal disease, we as ophthalmologists must keep up with an ever-accelerating innovation cycle. In this lecture, we will look at the Top Five Discoveries/Technologies in the last 10 years and look ahead at what is in the pipeline for our future practice. We will look ahead at the latest techniques and technologies for corneal imaging, drug treatments/delivery, genetics, and surgery, especially transplantation and refractive surgery. At the end of this session, the audience will have an engaging assessment of the current corneal landscape and have an interactive session at the end to ask questions and have discussions on where we will be in the next 5-10 years to better treat our patients.
