The 29th Annual Jack Crawford Day - Technology and Innovation in Paediatric Ophthalmology

This conference honours the late Dr. Jack S. Crawford, former Ophthalmologist-in-Chief for the Hospital for Sick Children, whose career was dedicated to advancing the specialty of paediatric ophthalmology and the care of children’s eye problems.

Conference Objectives

The 29th Annual Jack Crawford Day will focus on Technology and Innovation in Paediatric Ophthalmology.  The day will include topics relevant to both pediatric and general eye specialists including emerging therapies, developing diagnostics, innovating surgery, and technology controversies. 

We welcome international guest speakers including Craig Donaldson, Anthony Moore, and Michael O’Keefe.  

This overall goal of this program is to delve into technology and innovation in paediatric ophthalmology, providing attendees with a historical perspective and current trends in technology, practical tips for new diagnostic test and treatments, and a view toward future innovations.

At the conclusion of the meeting the attendee will:

  • Recognize how technology has changed paediatric ophthalmology practice over the past 20 years
  • Describe how to best utilize current technologies, including wide-field angiography, collagen cross-linking, telemedicine, and imaging technologies such as optical coherence tomography
  • Cite examples of innovative treatments, including gene therapy for retinal dystrophies, refractive surgery, and image-guided orbital surgery
