Dr Rick Wolfe was recently invited to speak at the third SynergEYES conference in Sydney.

SynergEYES is an annual educational forum which addresses clinical needs, trending topics and latest technological developments in Ophthalmology from highly respected local and international speakers. This year’s conference, which was attended by over 120 delegates, addressed key areas related to cataract and refractive surgery, including complex case management, advanced biometry, and latest research and updates on new and progressive technology.

As a leading expert in the field of cataract and refractive surgery, Dr Wolfe was invited to provide the key note address at the conference dinner, discussing the recent launch of Alcon’s Clareon® intraocular lens (IOL) with the AutonoMe™ Delivery System for cataract and lens exchange patients.

Dr Wolfe also delivered two further presentations at the conference, on the following topics:

  • “Laser refractive surgery versus lens refractive surgery” and
  • “Cataract surgery after laser eye surgery”

Dr Wolfe said: “My presentations generated some important discussions amongst the delegates.   At this year’s conference, I found Dr Lee Lenton’s talk about trifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) to be particularly interesting and insightful.  Dr Lenton brought a personal dimension to the discussion as he had recently had trifocal intraocular lenses implanted during his own cataract surgery.”
