British Oculoplastic Surgery Society Annual meeting
From 13-15 June 2018 I caught up my my friend and colleague Raman Malhotra [pictured] at the British Oculoplastic Surgery Society Annual Meeting in Dublin’s Printworks. This 3 day meeting included a day of detailed revision lectures on topics important to surgery of the upper and lower eyelid, the tear duct and the eye socket. This was followed by two days of lectures on current research projects and expert opinions from guest speakers visiting from Canada and Australia. In addition, breakfast meetings and round table discussion groups allowed surgeons from around the UK a chance to discuss difficult surgical situations face to face and share expertise on solutions. I am particulary grateful to Dr Paul Cauchi for his advice on inflammatory eye problems and Professor Tim Sullivan from Australia who discussed complete eyelid reconstruction. Mr Brian Leatherbarrow provided new insight into aspects of cosmetic facial surgery with Restylane filler. Thank you also to my friend and colleague Mr Jonathan Norris from Oxford for his work on ptosis and blepharoplasty techniques, and for the cycling excursions!
