"The Bionic Eye: Outcomes of the first Argus II implantations in the United States" and "Quantification of Disease Manifestation in Autofluorescence Images and Fluorescein Angiography"
Speaker: K. Thiran Jayasundera, MD, University of Michigan, Kellogg Eye Center
Date: Friday, June 26, 2015 @ 11:15AM-12:15PM
The Ophthalmic Photographers’ Society is pleased to announce the first of two Keynote
Speakers for the 2015 Mid-Year Program. Dr. K. Thiran Jayasundera will present a 60 minute
lecture on two topics in the morning on Friday June 26th. He will discuss the latest
advances with the bionic eye, and then address the use of FAF and FA to detect pathological
A graduate of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists, Dr.
Jayasundera is a vitreoretinal specialist with a focus on uveitis, inherited retinal diseases, and
clinical trials. His areas of research focus include genotype-phenotype correlations of inherited
retinal diseases, predictors of disease progression, and outcome measures for therapeutic
"The Bionic Eye: Outcomes of the first Argus II implantations in the United States"
Course Description: The outcomes of the first commercial Argus II implants in Michigan will be
discussed. Indications, preoperative and postoperative imaging, surgical details and visual
rehabilitation will be presented.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the attendee should be able to identify the
specific indications for considering Argus II implantations in patients, list the imaging performed
at the time of preoperative assessment and be able to counsel patients on expectations and
"Quantification of Disease Manifestation in Autofluorescence Images and Fluorescein
Course Description: Novel automated image analysis techniques for autofluorescence imaging
and fluorescein angiography will be discussed. The use of machine learning algorithms for
feature extraction and quantification developed at the University of Michigan will be presented.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the attendee should be able to list the imaging
steps necessary to detect and quantify pathological changes seen in autofluorescence
imaging and fluorescein angiography.
