    Dear Colleague:

    On behalf of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Glaucoma Society (AGS), it is our pleasure to welcome you to New Orleans and The Future Is Now! #Glaucoma2013.

    As cochairs of the Glaucoma Subspecialty Day Program, we have been honored to work with a superb planning group in organizing this years meeting. The goal for this years Glaucoma Sub-specialty Day is to deliver clinically relevant information for clinicians. We want both general ophthalmologists and specialists to walk away with new concepts to help fine-tune their glaucoma management skills. We worked very hard to involve highly qualified, expert speakers and modera-tors from all over the world to engage the audience throughout the day. We anticipate that this will be an extraordinary educational event, and we are grateful that you have chosen to spend your day at Glaucoma Subspecialty Day.

    We have built in ample time for audience response and feedback. The program is structured to be dynamic and interactive. Many of the sessions have been organized in a case presentation platform. Most sessions will include lively, engaging panels that will challenge many of our long-held beliefs concerning glaucoma management. This year we are emphasizing the role of the native lens in glau-coma management, both in terms of combining cataract and glaucoma surgery and regarding the role of the lens in the pathogenesis of narrow and some open-angle glaucomas. The afternoon will feature a session on microinvasive glaucoma surgery and its role in surgical glaucoma management, as well as an in-depth discussion on angle-closure glaucoma. Advances in imaging, diagnosis, and drug therapy will also be featured, including a debate on branded products vs. generics.

    We are excited to have Joseph Caprioli MD FACS as the American Glaucoma Society Subspecialty Day Lecturer. His talk is entitled Regional Rates of Field Loss in Glaucoma: Differential Effects of Trabeculectomy. Dr. Caprioli has long been recognized as a leading expert in structural and func-tional correlation and glaucoma progression, and we are grateful to him for sharing his work as our keynote speaker.

    In an effort further improve future Subspecialty Day meetings, we request that you assist us by com-pleting the evaluation form. We carefully review all comments to better understand your needs, so please indicate the strengths and shortcomings of todays program.

    Again, we welcome you to The Future Is Now! #Glaucoma2013. We hope you find it educational and enjoyable.
