Overview, Target Audience & Objectives The purpose of the OAS meeting is to educate OAS members, as well as other interested healthcare professionals, and share information that will enable them to provide the highest level of anesthesia service during ophthalmic surgery.

This meeting is of interest to anesthesiologists, ophthalmologists, certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), registered nurses (RNs) and other medical professionals working in ophthalmic anesthesia. 
At the conclusion of the conference, participants will be able to:
  1. 1. Identify the latest anesthesia techniques for ophthalmic surgery.
  2. Review pertinent historical and anatomical information related to ophthalmic anesthesia. 
  3. Evaluate different anesthesia techniques to determine which might warrant a change in current practice. 
  4. Generate an increased or sustained interest in developing knowledge, acquiring skills and continuing education in the area of ophthalmic anesthesiology.
