Highlights in Translational Science

Research provides the basis for the future of ophthalmology. The four sessions of this new format present clinical problems like age-related macular or dry eye syndrome are discussed under clinical and research perspectives, allowing for a more complete view. After each session, the best abstract of the session will be chosen.

Chameleon-like corneal disorders – 7th joint symposium of the Cornea Society and the Sektion DOG-Kornea
There are hidden causes of corneal erosion. Forme fruste of keratoconus does not show any pathologic signs at the slit-lamp. We know distinct corneal alterations with regard to the general term of the so-called dry eye. Different forms of corneal dystrophies are striking as inflammatory clinical signs associated with recurrent corneal erosion. Acanthamoeba keratitis is often mistaken for a herpetic disease at the beginning of the disorder. Several infantile corneal signs can be a hint to distinct hereditary systemic diseases. The most important decompensation of the cornea represents the Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy. MGUS-induced paraproteinemic keratopathy is not well known and shows similar clinical signs with regard to distinct dystrophic, systemic, and inflammatory/immunologic alterations of the cornea. Mark Mannis (Sacramento) will finally present the 3th Oskar Fehr lecture.
