Dr. Omar Almallah at Susskind & Almallah Eye Associates We are proud to announce that skilled ophthalmologist Dr. Omar Almallah just returned from an American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) meeting. This informative event was held in San Diego, California from May 3-7th.

This year, Dr. Almallah served as a co-instructor for an advanced course on iris suturing. Participants in his sold-out lesson included notable eye surgeons from around the world.

During this hour and a half lab, Dr. Almallah co-taught advanced surgical maneuvers such as using sutures in the anterior segment, management of complications, anomalies, and surgical challenges. Techniques included:

  • Dialysis repair
  • Cycloplegia repair options
  • Traumatic and congenital colobomas
  • Haptic recovery
  • Stabilization of intraocular lenses

The ASCRS’ mission to empower surgeons to improve the vision, outcomes, and quality of life for their patients closely aligns with Dr. Almallah’s professional philosophy.  He is thankful for this opportunity to share his knowledge regarding the latest surgical techniques with his peers.
