Sarasota Retina Institute Doctors’ Lecture Locally

Our doctors will be speaking at several meetings this weekend.

Macular Degeneration and Telescope

We have been asked to speak at two separate events this upcoming weekend. Drs. Levy, Torres and Rivero will be speaking at the Macular Degeneration Awareness Society meeting in Sarasota.

This is a wonderful event to help provide information on macular degeneration, the current therapies for it and what might be coming out in the future. Our doctors will be presenting information on the miniature implantable telescope that is giving so many of our patients a new outlook on life.

If you would like to attend call 1-800-253-0985, or  email to reserve your seat.

Parkinson’s Disease and the Eye

Dr. Abrams will be presenting at the the Neuro Challenge Foundation Meeting at the  Sarasota Memorial Institute for Advanced Medicine. The talk is about the Non-Motor Aspects of Parkinson’s disease.  Dr. Abrams will be talking about how Parkinson’s disease affects the eyes and visual system.

Dr. Andy Keegan from the Roskamp Institute will be talking about memory loss and dementia in Parkinson. This will be a very informative morning for both patients and their family/caregivers on aspects of the disease they might not often think of.

Registration is online at the Neuro Challenge Foundation website.

Doctors Reaching Out to Community

We hope that be going out to these lectures we can help educate the community. Our goal is not only to help our patients, but to help people understand what is going on with their diseases.

If you would like one of our doctors to talk at a local group on any of the disease we treat, please contact us at 941-921-5335 and we will be happy to help.

If you can not make the lectures do not fear. We will be posting our PowerPoint lectures online this week for everyone to view.
