- This course reviews the current status of light and sound technology in relation to subspecialty interests, highlighting the innovations of the decade. Advances in light and sound technology have enhanced efforts to define and manage eye disease, significantly improving pathologic processing, disease description, and understanding of ocular structure. Canadian innovations in ophthalmology include standard ultrasonography, ultrasound biomicroscopy, advanced OCT and multispectral display systems. PET analysis of nasolacrimal and orbital structures has elucidated oculoplastic rehabilitation. Refined imaging in the management of intraocular malignancy has improved outcomes in patients with eye cancer. Light and sound techniques have revealed retinal structure and function and revolutionized the management of age-related macular disease. Optic nerve visualization and perimetric techniques have illuminated glaucoma management, changing practice guidelines and patient care standards.
