SAN FRANCISCO The American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Eye M.D. Association, invites its members to attend a free retrospective spotlight session titled "Phacoemulsification: 35 Years Later," at its Annual Meeting, Monday, November 17, 2003, from 6:00. to 7:30 p.m. in Ballroom C of the Anaheim Convention Center.

This new evening session will feature the "Father of Phaco," Charles D. Kelman, MD, and seven other world-renowned doctors who influenced the practice of cataract surgery. The other doctors are: Richard D. Kratz, MD; Robert M. Sinskey, MD; Manus C. Kraff, MD; Robert H. Osher, MD; Samuel Masket, MD; Richard L. Lindstrom, MD; and Stephen S. Lane, MD. The session will be introduced by H. Dunbar Hoskins Jr., MD, Executive Vice President of the Academy.

Following this unique session, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., a reception will be held at which attendees will have the opportunity to meet some of these leaders in cataract and refractive surgery.
