Thomas H. Peters Memorial Lecture: Contact Lens Conundrums in OSD

Melissa Barnett, OD, FAAO, FSLS, FBCLA
UC Davis Medical Center

6 PM – 6:50 PM PT
1 MISC CE Hour
COPE No. 72027-AS

Dry eye disease is omnipresent in clinical practices and can range from mild to severe with variable presentations. This course explores dry eye prevention, etiologies, diagnosis, clinical findings and the latest management techniques for contact lens induced dry eye. New treatment advancements and real-world case examples.

The Thomas H. Peters Memorial Fund was established at Berkeley in 1956 through gifts from his family and friends. Dr. Peters was not an alumnus of our school, but rather studied optometry at night at the California College of Optometry in San Francisco. He owned a private practice in Oakland, served two terms as COA President, and taught continuing night courses for optometrists. Perhaps his greatest achievement for Berkeley Optometry was his negotiation with university administration that laid the foundation for the establishment of the school. His ten-year effort culminated in the 1948 dedication of what is now Minor Hall.
